Broad Sky Networks announced this week a strategic partnership with SIM provider Webbing.
Webbing offers a next-generation Global Personal Internet solution that provides users with a secure mobile hotspot that can be accessed from just about any location. This solution, called the Webbing Spot, can be used on nearly any mobile device with a SIM card, the company says. This includes smartphones, LTE-enabled laptops and tablets, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. Webbing automatically locates and connects users to a nearby wireless signal without tying them to 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 gamechanger for enterprise customers looking for truly global and mobile internet connectivity.”
Deploying and managing global enterprise mobility for business travelers and IoT initiatives can be extremely challenging because of complexities and fees. Most carrier solutions on the market today have restrictions and require users to purchase and install a third-party VPN application to bypass ISP restrictions for U.S.-based sites.
Broad Sky Networks intends to break down these barriers by removing impediments at the network level. The company’s global SIM solution delivers a simplified approach to wireless connectivity by bundling Webbing’s multi-IMSI, single SIM technology with failover across more than 600 tier one providers. Through Broad Sky Networks’ strategic partnerships and close collaboration with Webbing, customers now have greater reach.
