Virtual1 launches new 4G Ethernet service

Virtual1 has been working hard over the last 6 months to bring a compelling Cellular Ethernet product to market which complements its connectivity portfolio. Virtual1’s Cellular Ethernet solution is based on the UK’s top 3 mobile networks and will enable its Partners to rapidly deliver connectivity solutions to any partner location, using whichever mobile signal is strongest.

Significantly, it will also replicate the standard product set of traditional wired Ethernet solutions. Cellular Ethernet will come in 3 forms; as Primary Connectivity, Pre-Ethernet and Backup solutions.

The solutions blend well with our existing software defined network, It is compatible with our 1Portal health check functionality, and modification through our software-defined network is in development.

Head of Products & Marketing Neil Wilson commented “We have wanted to bring a cellular product into our portfolio for a while, but it was critical to make sure that it worked in harmony with our wider proposition and brought something not available elsewhere in the market.

“Finding the right connectivity partner who would work with us on this and help us to develop a unique solution was critical, and we found exactly that in Pangea,” Wilson continued.

Co-Founder and Managing Director Dan Cunliffe (pictured) commented “As a provider of bespoke, customer-centric solutions, Pangea is excited to collaborate with a leading digital service provider in the Channel such as Virtual1. Innovative and seamless, the Cellular Ethernet solution will grant customers instant and reliable connectivity through our multi-network capabilities, whilst giving Virtual1 total control of IP addressing..

“This is an incredible opportunity for both companies, and we’re looking forward to seeing the value that we can deliver to the Channel through a strong partnership.”

Virtual1 expect the Cellular Ethernet to be on general release within the next couple of months and are currently working on a number of trial deployments with Partners.
