PREPAID MARKET SIZE AND TRENDS ANALYSIS AND THE IMPACT OF RESTRICTED AUTHORIZATION NETWORKS (RAN)
Mercator Advisory Group will present publicly for the first time findings from its closely followed, annual prepaid benchmark with data on the overall size and growth of the total prepaid industry from 2009 to 2010. Now in their sixth year of documenting industry growth, Mercator will discuss market dynamics reshaping specific segments such as GPR, Incentives, Government and Payroll. Also discussed will be Restricted Authorization Networks (RAN) and now these networks are quickly changing the traditional prepaid landscape and bridging the gap between open and closed loop cards. An explanation will be provided on the operation and use of RAN, with descriptions of various existing implementations that already deliver increased value and help drive specific cardholder/consumer behaviors.
