Private Mobile Networks Recognised by IT Industry Award

Private Mobile Networks Ltd, the UK provider of private GSM network technology, today announced it has been shortlisted as a ‘Supplier of the Year’ finalist in the British Computer Society IT Industry Awards.

The BCS IT Industry Awards are the leading hallmark of success amongst practitioners in the IT industry today. These cross-industry awards recognise, promote and acclaim excellence, professionalism, innovation and the outstanding achievements to which individuals and groups contribute.

“Since we launched the concept of a private mobile network back in 2005, we have worked incredibly hard to establish the technology and have won significant customers across the world,” comments Dean Parsons, Managing Director of Private Mobile Networks. “Launching a new product category is always a challenge, but we are grateful that influential organisations such as the BCS recognise the contribution we have made in delivering a technology that will help businesses both reduce costs and provide innovative solutions to long-standing problems,” added Parsons.

The PMN solution creates a private GSM network to carry traffic between mobile phones within the coverage area and from mobile phones across intra-site IP networks, without incurring mobile operator call charges. The PMN solution provides Voice, SMS and high speed GPRS coverage, with full support for both open standard and traditional TDM-based PBXs.

Anna Duckworth, BCS Head of Corporate Marketing said, “Year-on-year, the standard of entries increases and this year is no exception, with innovative projects which showcase excellence in IT. The next stage of judging will be very difficult as our expert panel endeavours to select the outright winners for each award.”
