Transatel Launch Airwave Smart Mobile

VIGNEAU Philippe

Transatel is pleased to announce the launch of a new UK MVNO partner. The new service, known as Airwave Smart Mobile, is being launched and managed by Airwave and will be made available to public service organisations in the UK.

Airwave Smart Mobile is a mobile communications service designed specifically to meet the current and future needs of public service organisations. Operating as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), it provides access to one the UK’s largest mobile networks and enables the possibility of interaction with Airwave’s Emergency Services Network (ESN). For the first time ever users will be able to connect – on a permissions-only basis – from smartphone to a talkgroup on Airwave’s ESN.

Airwave is Transatel’s twenty-fourth MVNO partner in the UK, and joins more than a hundred enterprise, B2B, B2C, and niche MVNOs who have chosen to partner with Transatel in the UK and worldwide.

Philippe Vigneau, Transatel VP of business development said “It is very rewarding to see Airwave announce their MVNO launch today at the Critical Communications Europe summit. This launch demonstrates Transatel’s leadership and dedication to quality MVNO services throughout Europe, and specifically in the UK. The rest of the Transatel team and I wish Airwave every success in addressing its new markets.”
