Webbing offers a global personal internet solution that provides users with a secure mobile hotspot from any location. This solution, the Webbing Spot, is ideal for enterprise users that require continuous access to mission-critical applications. The Webbing Spot can be used on nearly any mobile device with a SIM card. It works with smartphones, LTE-enabled laptops and tablets, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, automatically locating and connecting to the closest and most optimal wireless signals. At the same time, it avoids locking users into a single carrier.
“Broad Sky is pleased to announce our partnership with such an innovator in the mobile internet arena,” said Broad Sky CEO Mike Mudd. “This partnership builds on our ability to deliver highly-secure wireless WAN to global enterprise customers, in order to support primary internet and backup for SD-WAN. With Webbing, enterprise customers will also have seamless wireless internet access in over 200 countries for both IoT solutions and for business travelers who cannot afford the time and effort required for coverage analysis or wrangling with carriers. Imagine business travelers on a high-speed train not getting interrupted on a web conference or a transportation provider that can rely on embedded IoT devices to track, monitor and control assets across a multi-state/country transport. This bundled connectivity solution is a game changer for enterprise customers looking for truly global and mobile internet connectivity.”
Managing and deploying global enterprise mobility for business travelers and IoT initiatives can be extremely challenging, the company says, because of the complexities and fees associated with traditional carrier networks. Additionally, most solutions on the market today have carrier restrictions and require users to purchase, install and set up a third-party VPN application. A VPN application is traditionally needed to bypass ISP restrictions on U.S. based sites such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube.
Broad Sky Networks’ strategic partnership with Webbing breaks down connectivity barriers by removing impediments at the network level. The global SIM solution delivers a simplified approach to wireless connectivity by bundling Webbing’s multi-IMSI single SIM solution with failover capabilities across more than 600 tier one providers. Through Broad Sky Networks’ strategic partnerships and close collaboration with Webbing, customers gain access to an extensive carrier reach. This gives customers superior and unprecedented access to the best possible carrier connections for extremely reliable and high-quality internet, wherever they may travel.
Typical customers eliminate roaming changes by 75 percent to 85 percent by leveraging Webbing’s 4G and LTE networks and QoS capabilities. Security is also improved because users can only access authorized websites and applications via a secured hotspot, limiting exposure to malware, virus, and malicious sites.
