London, 21st September 2009: Wireless Logic (www.wirelesslogic.co.uk), the UK’s leading ‘machine-to-machine’ SIM aggregator, has signed an exclusive deal with Teldat, Spanish telecommunication specialists, to provide businesses anywhere in the UK with a failsafe way of staying connected, when networks go down. Currently very few networks are fully backed-up leaving many companies, exposed to potentially expensive outages.
For the first time, UK businesses, regardless of location and size, will stay connected by plugging Teldat’s SIM-enabled 3GE signal booster into their existing fixed line networks to provide an invaluable back-up service to any company that wants to mitigate the risk of outage; whether due to damaged lines, poor regional coverage or environmental issues such as electrical storms.
This is the first time that companies will be able to fully integrate a SIM-enabled wireless back-up solution into their existing networks without the need of adding redundant equipment nor by having to replace all the existing telecommunication gear.
Under the agreement, Wireless Logic will embed its SIM technology into Teldat’s 3GE wireless signal boosters which, when network failure occurs, will activate to connect customers to Wireless Logic’s SIM-based network, guaranteeing continued performance and reliability. The Teldat booster uses Ethernet connectivity enabling the booster unit to be located anywhere within a client building away from the server room, maximising signal strength from the chosen network. Each unit is expected to be competitively priced, with highly competitive airtime monthly costs across Vodafone, O2 or Orange, making this the cheapest way to maintain connectivity and ideal for small businesses who want to stay connected without paying for expensive alternatives such as a further ADSL line or satellite back-up. It is also unlikely that users will see any discernable difference in bandwidth quality. Wireless Logic are able to upscale the back-up system through the bonding of SIMs, enabling greater data upload and download.
Philip Cole, Sales Director at Wireless Logic comments: “On average, businesses in the UK experience network connectivity failure at least twice a year. The result of this can be catastrophic; loss of productivity and, more importantly, revenue. Our partnership with Teldat means that businesses everywhere can be secure in the knowledge that they are protected, with little capital cost to their existing network infrastructure.”
Antonio Garcia Marcos, Teldat's President and CEO, says: "Network back-up solutions can be prohibitively expensive for many businesses – especially SMEs and so this solution is designed to afford businesses of all shapes and sizes a reliable way to stay connected when traditional networks fail or where the current network infrastructure is less established. Teldat’s 3G Enabler allows business users of ISDN lines to convert their main line to 3G; in this way, by adding a 3G Enabler to the current router, 3G becomes main line access at a much more economical rate.”
