Many staff are now mobile in their workplace and many have access to a mobile phone. Coupled with the growing presence of WiFi and the ability to provide voice communications of this WiFi network the mobile smartphone is fast becoming the most versatile communications tool.
An owned local GSM network provides onsite mobile voice and data communication without fear of public network congestion or failure. Being self contained and owned outright its size, capacity and site coverage are all determined by your business needs. With the growing use of smartphones and the flexibility of dedicated applications to assist in work activities means an onsite GSM network can provide robust voice and data calls with the capability to use WiFi for large data applications, all from one device and without restriction or reliance on external public networks. This allows Bring Your Own Device or company owned smartphones to be utilised to the full, reducing the number of networks and devices being carried by staff onsite and offsite.
The ability to use one device for all of our communication needs, business and private, is becoming not only very attractive, it is now becoming possible. The expanding use of SMART devices and SMART technology is forcing many employers to look at how they can create an infrastructure with integrated solutions. The development of your own onsite GSM network is a reality that enables you to control the network performance and ensure you get the maximum integrated functionality from wireless communication.
In a critical environment it isn't always possible to adopt the latest in technology without the correct support. Mobile phones and smartphones are now a part of most people’s everyday lives and with bring your own device (BYOD) becoming more and more appealing to users and businesses alike, organisations need to consider the flexibility and usability of the devices in their communications mix.
Smartphones are able to provide a variety of applications for communication and access to data, driving efficiencies, with one device being used for a multitude of tasks. Integration with the local PBX enables telephony features such as call forward, waiting, hold and call transfer to be used.
Intermittent coverage within buildings is a widespread issue and can lead to poor levels of communication and customer service. Onsite GSM allows in-
The private mobile network (PMN) also enables a business to deploy mobile networks into remote regions or isolated user communities, where network integration and infrastructure costs would otherwise be prohibitive. This is particularly suited to mining, shipping etc. A standard GSM mobile phone can be used on the PMN where there is limited or no public network GSM coverage.
Key business benefits include:
Cost savings – no charge onsite calls and normal landline rates via the local PBX, allowing mobile phones to operate as PBX extensions. There is also the ability to restrict individual users from calling offsite numbers thereby creating a fully contained business tool for onsite only communications if desired.
Security – with only authorised users being able to access the GSM network and firewalls for added defence, the network is contained to only staff
Continuity of service – removed from public mobile networks you are in control of the entire mobile system, meaning that should the public network be affected for any reason the onsite network continues to deliver services without influence from the external services
