Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE)

Definition - What does Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) mean?

A Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) is an organization that provides business infrastructure solutions to mobile virtual network operators (MVNO). Services include billing, administration, operations, base station subsystem support, operations support systems and provisioning for back-end network elements.

An MVNE provides capital expenditure deferral to MVNOs. This allows MVNOs to focus on customer service and loyalty, product enhancement, brand awareness and marketing. MVNEs and MVNOs often share risk/reward arrangements.

Techopedia explains Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE)

Designing a MVNE is a complex process that includes commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) applications and multitenant business model conversions. Aggregator MVNEs provide integration and consulting services and bundle back office network components through alliances to promote cash solutions. Such specialized MVNEs provide backup office network components, such as messaging platforms, billing solutions and data platforms. A MVNE may rely on a wireless network infrastructure, such as a host mobile network operator, or own/control proprietary network elements.

MVNEs also provide advanced offerings, such as applications, content, e-commerce, general packet radio service (GPRS) and EDGE.
