By November 12, 2018 No Comments

Globalgig has the ability to develop solutions that integrate wireless, voice, wireline and managed network technologies, orchestrating hyper-connectivity for global businesses.

Enterprise mobility has become a keystone for businesses in today’s competitive market. It increases the productivity of employees by enabling agility and real-time collaboration. With business growing in complexity, the minimum requirements of enterprise mobility and connectivity are changing. Unlike a decade back, an ordinary Internet connection and a fix lined telephone a normal business hours is not enough to put a business at the competitive edge. As demand increases, Globalgig is providing global-reach, simple and cost-effective enterprise connectivity solutions. Ernest Cunningham, Founder and CEO of the company says, “We are a unique communications service provider, with the ability to develop solutions that integrate wireless, voice, wireline and managed network technologies, orchestrating hyper-connectivity for global businesses.”

 

Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, Globalgig is an international Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) that can provide mobile broadband data services in hundreds of countries with real-time, local wireless data access. The company is a true Global MVNO with patented multi-IMSI SIM containing over 600 carrier profiles for data access in more than 200 countries. Globalgig provides services in the 3G and 4G/LTE bands with static IP. Globalgig solutions include wireless WAN for primary access and failover for business continuity, wireless data access for remote and temporary offices, connectivity for IoT or Machine-to-Machine(M2M) applications, wireline services such as MPLS, IP transit and dedicated Internet, and business voice solutions.

We give our customers global reach for wireless data access and mobility with one account team, one contract, and one invoice.

Cunningham says, “We give our customers global reach for wireless data access and mobility with one account team, one contract, and one invoice.” The company’s API-driven Orchestra platform enables effective management of SIMs and data plans associated with multiple devices from a single system that significantly improves cost optimization for enterprises. Staffed by veterans from both the wireless and wireline industries and with dedicated customer support teams, Globalgig delivers all these services with a common goal of meeting the unique requirements of every client. He adds, “We work hand-in-hand with the customer throughout the entire process from designing to implementation of solution to meet their business needs.”

 

Globalgig customers leverage its Multi-IMSI SIM in real-world solutions including failover for SD-WAN implementations, day-one access to temporary locations, kiosks or events, mobile broadband for global travelers, and IoT supply chain tracking solutions. Cunningham further explains, “An IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) is a globally unique number used to authenticate a device on a wireless carrier’s network. In the U.S, devices typically have a SIM card supplied by the wireless carrier with only one IMSI, used to authenticate to one carrier network such as AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile or Sprint. With the Globalgig Multi-IMSI SIM, you have the ability to establish local connections to other network carrier instead of incurring expensive roaming charges.”

Globalgig has indeed become a global MVNO that multi-national companies can depend on to rapidly implement their mobile strategy and applications cost-effectively, worldwide.

Globalgig customers are given the ability to manage all their SIMS and data plans from a single portal or API interface to the Orchestra platform. SIM management capabilities include:

  • Dashboard display of current month data usage for each SIM
  • One clear overview of all data plan information
  • Administrative functionality to activate, suspends, and reactivates services
  • Month-by-month glance of all data plans with usage
  • Quick view of users and endpoints, with drill-down to details that provide the full user information along with data plan subscription
