"The mobile commerce opportunity is becoming an increasingly attractive one, and operators can take a more prominent role in this ecosystem in a number of ways," says Bokun. "More advanced m-payments services, typically targeting customers in the developed world, such as m-wallet and associated value-added services, can generate significant revenue for operators in the long-run, however, it is important to acknowledge that not all mobile operators can launch these services successfully and make them mass market," she explains. "We aim to address these issues in order to make the most of the revenue-generating opportunities available."
