TeleWare, the provider of communications solutions for mobile and distributed workers, is pleased to announce that Private Mobile Networks has been selected for inclusion in the Gartner report on Cool Vendors in Enterprise Communications Applications, issued at the end of March.
This Gartner report identifies “innovative solutions that reduce deployment costs, and improve operating efficiencies and the accessibility of unified communications.” Moreover, “the vendors in this report have been selected by the Gartner analysts for their ability to address important areas that pose challenges to communication planners. These include leveraging an organization’s communications infrastructure, simplifying solution implementation and optimizing ongoing application costs.”
“We are proud we are to achieve this recognition and, for us, it rounds off an exceptional couple of years for PMN with some really good customer successes, comments Steve Haworth, CEO of TeleWare Plc. “This year we have seen a doubling of sales showing that this technology is starting to move from a high quality niche technology into a more mainstream business tool,” added Haworth.
Private Mobile Networks say their solutions enable the deployment of GSM mobile networks into remote regions or isolated user communities where network integration and infrastructure costs would be otherwise prohibitive. They can be used to create standalone networks or to supplement existing services. Integration into the macro network is provided through IP network interfaces.
The Private Mobile Networks Remote Deployment Unit allows a private and highly secure GSM network to be deployed anywhere in the world in just a few minutes. The latest RDU Mk2 model, released in March, now has an operational range of just under 1km and includes a fully functional PBX. This offers advanced unified communication features such as call conferencing, call recording, voicemail, hold and transfer, hunt groups and full SMS data capability. The unit supports every major manufacturer of 2G and 2.5G GSM handset with backhaul via any PSTN / SIP-based network, as well as optional satellite routers.
