A VNO, or Virtual Network Operator, is a type of telecommunications service provider that does not own the infrastructure over which it provides services. Instead, a VNO leases network capacity from other operators and resells it to its own customers, often under its own brand. This allows VNOs to offer a wide range of services without the high costs associated with building and maintaining their own network infrastructure. VNOs are often smaller and more agile than traditional telecoms operators, which allows them to tailor their services to specific market segments or geographic areas.

Three VNO options:
An MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) is a type of wireless service provider that leases network access from one or more of the major cellular carriers, such as AT&T or T-Mobile, and then resells it to its own customers. There are several reasons why a company might choose to become an MVNO:
- Cost savings: MVNOs can often offer competitive pricing to their customers because they don’t have to invest in the infrastructure and equipment required to build and maintain a wireless network. This allows them to pass on the savings to their customers in the form of lower prices.
- Flexibility: MVNOs can tailor their service offerings to specific market segments, such as budget-conscious consumers or businesses, and can quickly launch new services and products to meet changing customer needs.
- Branding: MVNOs can differentiate themselves from the larger, more established carriers by offering unique branding and marketing, as well as custom pricing and service plans.
- Customer service: Because MVNOs are typically smaller and more agile than the major carriers, they can often provide better customer service and support to their customers.
IoT-VNO stands for “Internet of Things – Virtual Network Operator”. A virtual network operator (VNO) is a company that provides telecom services without owning the infrastructure required to deliver those services. IoT refers to the interconnectedness of devices, such as appliances, vehicles, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity, that enable these objects to collect and exchange data. An IoT-VNO, therefore, is a company that provides telecom services for internet of things devices.
Mobile Broadband VNOis a type of high-speed internet connection that uses a cellular network to transmit data. It is a wireless technology that allows users to access the internet on their mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops, without being tethered to a physical connection like a cable or DSL line. Cellular broadband is often used as an alternative to traditional broadband internet in areas where wired connections are unavailable or unreliable, such as rural areas or in buildings with poor reception
