Cellhire launches intelligent MVNO ‘eSIMsmart’

Global mobile telecoms provider Cellhire launches its principal eSIM-based MVNO brand ‘eSIMsmart’ and becomes a member of the GSMA.

Cellhire B2B customers in France will be the first to take advantage of the company’s innovative approach to data and voice solutions available on eSIMsmart, prior to a full global roll-out later this quarter. As a Full MVNO, Cellhire has built its own core network, has a French MNC [Mobile Network Code] and IMSI [International Mobile Subscriber Identity] range and has installed local PGWs [Packet Gateways] to ensure minimal data latency.

“Becoming a MVNO, a mobile network and member of the GSMA is an important step for Cellhire with its long history as one of the leading innovative and global mobile telecoms providers,” says Cellhire Group Technology Director Peter Whelerton.

The company’s full global roll-out will see eSIMsmart utilise a multi-IMSI, eSIM configuration using roaming IMSIs. To achieve maximum global network reach, Cellhire is working with new and existing network partners to add more MNOs globally.

Cellhire has carved out a niche providing SIMs capable of very large data volumes to business customers and for use in mobile broadband devices and IoT devices. As these devices modernise, using EUICC [Embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card] SIM chipsets capable of receiving an over-the-air profile, eSIMsmart makes it possible to update customer needs remotely.

“The implementation of eSIM technology paves the way for our next evolution of forward-looking competitive domestic and roaming airtime products, while future-proofing our global distribution network for the delivery of over-the-air changes,” Whelerton adds.

Twenty months in the making, the MVNO project cements a long-standing relationship with Orange France that has enabled Cellhire to deliver market-beating data and voice SIMs across Europe. Initially using the M2M eSIM specification, Cellhire engineers developed an intelligent eSIM platform capable of pushing the right bespoke profile to deliver cost-effective voice and data as the SIM travels.

“The profiles use a clever combination of domestic, roaming and sponsored roaming profiles which can be provisioned over-the-air, direct to a customer’s SIM,” says Whelerton, adding:

“eSIMsmart leverages the power of Cellhire’s 30 plus years in the telecoms industry, its MNO relationships and global reach. In addition, each eSIM is delivered over-the-air cutting out logistics and reducing SIM plastic waste making it more environmentally friendly.”

Real-time control

Cellhire Chief Executive Officer, Martyn Stevens, says, “The launch of the eSIMsmart brand is an incredibly important milestone for Cellhire. Being a MVNO gives us total control over the commercial offerings, tariffing and real-time visibility that customers require. Real-time visibility is vitally important in an area where Cellhire already excels, that of cellular IoT plans with large data bundles.”

“Traditionally IoT devices use tiny amounts of data but there is a growing number of IoT devices that require much larger bandwidth, with different control mechanisms, which is where Cellhire’s industry-known Atlas SIM Management and Billing platform comes in,” he says. “The integration of eSIMsmart into the already-powerful platform extends even further the real-time control and visibility Cellhire has of all data and calls flowing through its core network. The fully featured Atlas SIM Management Platform is entirely backed by a customer-accessible API.”

Cellhire UK supports NHS COVID-19 vaccination rollout

York-based global telecommunications provider Cellhire is supporting UK mobile network operator O2 to connect over 1600 NHS vaccination sites in England with a range of connectivity solutions across multiple networks.

Working around-the-clock, including over the Christmas and New Year period, the combined effort from both companies is delivering the connectivity and technical hardware solution required by each vaccination site announced by the UK government. This vital connectivity will help ensure that the NHS is able to deliver a large-scale vaccination programme without significantly impacting on other key services.

The technical solution consists of state-of-the-art Peplink mobile routers coupled with high-speed secure mobile data. This provides the ability for significant numbers of devices to connect utilising the latest WiFi technology. Allowing for rapid deployment and remote visibility of devices, the solution includes a smart remote management application providing confidence it is configured and ready for use the first time and every time. Built with contingency in mind, the routers are equipped with the ability to switch to a failover network if the primary network is unavailable.

Cellhire UK Managing Director, Matt Bennett says “COVID-19 has been the single greatest public health emergency in the history of the NHS and it’s a great honour for Cellhire to be part of the backbone of the vaccine programme. The solutions that we are providing will help in managing the vaccination of millions of people as quickly as possible.”

“I am extremely proud of the Cellhire team that has worked diligently around the clock in order to fulfil these requirements.”

“The ability Cellhire has to deliver multi-network secure mobile data, quickly and at scale, is thanks to its strong global network partnerships and its robust and resilient team.”

Cellhire supports global vaccination effort

Global mobile telecommunications provider Cellhire continues to work around-the-clock to provide secure, high speed data connections for thousands of vaccination sites worldwide. The company is engaged with governments, appointed private enterprise and network operators to provide rapid rollout of mobile data connectivity to the sites.

Cellhire Group CEO Martyn Stevens says, “COVID-19 has been a devastating public health emergency that has reached every corner of the globe. It is an honour for Cellhire to play our part and be an important component in helping to establish and support vaccination programmes in Europe and the USA.”

“The complexity of the rollout has seen Cellhire involved directly with large corporates in the USA and indirectly as a partner to Mobile Network Operators [MNOs] in other countries including the UK and France, providing equipment and airtime for mobile connectivity. The flexibility of Cellhire has really been highlighted by our capability to deliver mobile connectivity on time and at scale to thousands of vaccination sites worldwide.”

One of the more technical solutions being provided by Cellhire is mobile Pepwave routers coupled with high-speed secure mobile data. The routers enable a significant number of devices (typically, laptops and tablets) to connect to remote patient record databases utilising the latest Wi-Fi technology.

Allowing for rapid deployment and remote visibility of devices, the solution includes a smart remote management application that is pre-configured and ready for use, making life simpler for all the users. Built with contingency in mind, the routers are equipped with the ability to switch to a failover network if the primary network is unavailable.

Cellhire has the ability to deliver multi-network secure mobile data, quickly and at scale, thanks to its strong, proven-over-many-years global mobile network partnerships and robust and resilient teams.

AllTalk VoIP for healthcare providers

Elsewhere, Cellhire is providing its VoIP (Voice over IP) solution, AllTalk, to healthcare providers in place of traditional phone systems. AllTalk facilitates the rapid deployment of an easy to manage phone system where multiple call handlers can be reached from a single local phone number wherever they are based. AllTalk is handling thousands of incoming calls from patients calling to book their vaccination appointments.

For example, in France, a hospital was faced with the major operational challenge of running a COVID-19 vaccination centre. It urgently needed a local telephone number that could be answered by multiple call-handlers regardless of location, which would enable patients to book vaccination appointments. Cellhire provided its AllTalk app-based solution with a single local number that automatically routes calls to multiple call-handlers wherever they are based.

The solution allowed the hospital to successfully launch a single phone number vaccine appointment service. The AllTalk App supports multiple call-handlers and enables the hospital to handle large volumes of simultaneous incoming calls.

Stevens adds, “Our global footprint and close working relationships with key MNOs and hardware partners is ensuring undisrupted services and supply chains for operations teams in these challenging times.”

“As many will be aware, Cellhire has extensive experience in providing connectivity for use at large scale events including the Olympics, Paralympics and FIFA World Cup, supplying tens of thousands of mobile data connections to global media companies, international broadcasters, athletes, sponsors, teams, and spectators.”

“For the vaccinations programmes, our systems were well placed to meet the urgent demand over the Christmas and New Year period in particular.”

Cellhire Reaches Major MVNO Milestone

7th October 2020, York, UK. Leading Global Telecoms Provider Cellhire achieves mission-critical milestone with the first eSIM profiles being deployed during the development of its principal MVNO, utilising eSIM technology.

The implementation of eSIM technology versus the logistical constraints of physical SIM cards will future-proof its global distribution network and deliver over-the-air changes. The success of this achievement paves the way for a Q1 2021 market launch, where the company will deliver the next evolution of competitive domestic and roaming airtime products.

The project is 14 months in the making as Cellhire becomes a Full MVNO [Mobile Virtual Network Operator] in France, cementing a long-standing relationship that has delivered market-beating voice and data SIMs across Europe.

Cellhire Group Technology Director, Peter Whelerton, says, “Cellhire has built its own core network and has a French MNC [Mobile Network Code] and IMSI [International Mobile Subscriber Identity] range. The Full MVNO is the foundation for a forward-looking product range. Cellhire engineers have developed an innovative eSIM platform capable of delivering a bespoke combination of domestic, roaming and sponsored roaming IMSIs over-the-air to a customer’s SIM to deliver the most cost-effective solution.”

“It’s a product that provides cutting-edge delivery methods to leverage the power of Cellhire’s 30 plus years in the telecoms industry, MNO [Mobile Network Operator] relationship and global reach. Innovatively delivered over-the-air, it is environmentally friendly.”

The company will initially launch as an MVNO domestically in France with innovative data and voice solutions in early Q1 2021. This will be followed by an international launch with a multi-IMSI, eSIM configuration using roaming IMSIs in Q2 2021. To achieve maximum global network reach, Cellhire is dynamically working with its new and existing network partners to on-board additional MNOs globally.

Cellhire franchit une étape importante dans le cadre de son projet MVNO.

7 octobre 2020, Paris, France. Cellhire, fournisseur mondial de télécommunications, franchit une étape cruciale en déployant ses premiers profils eSIM dans le cadre du développement de son MVNO, en utilisant la technologie eSIM.

La mise en œuvre de la technologie eSIM, par rapport aux contraintes logistiques des cartes SIM physiques, permettra à son réseau de distribution mondial d’être à l’épreuve du temps et de réaliser tous les changements en instantané. Le succès de cette étape ouvre la voie à un lancement sur le marché au premier trimestre 2021, date à laquelle l’entreprise présentera aussi ses évolutions de produits et de tarifs, toujours plus compétitifs, pour le marché local et l’itinérance.

Le projet est en cours de déploiement depuis 14 mois et Cellhire, en devenant un MVNO [opérateur de réseau mobile virtuel] complet en France, consolide ainsi une relation de longue date qui a permis d’offrir des services voix et internet supérieurs à ceux du marché, dans toute l’Europe.

Le Directeur Technologique du groupe Cellhire, Peter Whelerton, déclare : “Cellhire a construit son propre cœur réseau et dispose de son MNC français [Mobile Network Code] et de plusieurs IMSI [International Mobile Subscriber Identity]. Le Full MVNO est le point de départ d’une nouvelle gamme de produits tournés vers l’avenir. Les ingénieurs de Cellhire ont développé une plateforme eSIM innovante capable de fournir une combinaison sur mesure d’IMSI domestiques, de roaming et de roaming parrainé afin d’offrir la solution la plus rentable pour chacun de nos clients”.

“La eSIM est une prestation de pointe pour tirer parti de la puissance des 30 années d’expérience de Cellhire dans l’industrie des télécommunications, de sa relation avec les MNO [opérateurs de réseaux mobiles] et de son ambition internationale. Complètement dématérialisée, elle est également respectueuse de l’environnement”.

Cellhire s’est créé une niche en proposant des cartes SIM capables de traiter de très gros volumes de data pour les clients professionnels et pour une utilisation dans des appareils mobiles haut débit. Au fur et à mesure que ces appareils se modernisent, en utilisant des puces SIM EUICC (Embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card) capables de recevoir un profil opérateur en direct, ce projet permet de répondre aux besoins des clients à distance.

Le Directeur Général du Groupe Cellhire, Martyn Stevens, déclare : “Le MVNO donne à Cellhire un contrôle total sur les offres commerciales, la tarification et les usages en temps réel. Ce dernier point est d’une importance vitale dans un domaine où Cellhire excelle déjà, celui des gros forfaits IOT”.

“Traditionnellement, les dispositifs IoT utilisent de minuscules quantités de données, mais il existe un nombre croissant de terminaux qui nécessitent une bande passante beaucoup plus large, avec différents mécanismes de contrôle, et c’est là qu’intervient la plateforme Atlas Billing et SIM Control de Cellhire”, dit-il, ajoutant : “Entièrement fonctionnelle et entièrement soutenue par une API accessible au client, l’objectif est d’étendre encore plus les aspects de contrôle en temps réel, car Cellhire aura une visibilité totale de toutes les données et appels qui transitent par son cœur de réseau”.

La société sera lancée en tant que MVNO sur le marché français dès le premier trimestre 2021, avec des solutions innovantes pour l’internet et les communications téléphoniques. Elle sera suivie d’un lancement international avec une configuration multi-IMSI et eSIM utilisant des IMSI en itinérance au cours du deuxième trimestre 2021. Afin d’atteindre une portée maximale, Cellhire travaille de manière dynamique avec ses partenaires mobiles internationaux,  nouveaux et existants, pour embarquer des MNO supplémentaires dans le monde entier.

Satellite

What is a satellite phone and when do I need one?

Satellite phones have been in use for over two decades, yet there is still an air of confusion surrounding what they are and who they are used by.

The use of satellite phones is diverse, and they prove indispensable to a wide range of operations, businesses, and individuals. In a world of smartphones and 5G, it is easy to dismiss such rugged equipment, but satellite phones are crucial to many areas of modern life.

What are satellite phones?

iridium-9555[1]

A satellite phone is a mobile device that connects to the telephone network through satellites, rather than relying on terrestrial cell sites as cell phones do. This means that with a satellite phone you can stay connected in areas where cellular cover is not possible – for example, in the mountains, the desert, or the Poles.

Satellite networks are either Geostationary (GEO) or Low Earth Orbit (LEO). GEO satellites orbit above the equator, while LEO satellites orbit closer to the earth, and much more quickly.

Due to the curvature of the earth, GEO satellites cannot provide continuous service beyond a certain latitude, whereas a constellation of LEO satellites provides continuous, global coverage as the satellite moves. The low latency nature of LEO satellites allows for faster communications, while GEO networks often experience lag.

Satellite phones that utilise LEO networks are therefore indispensable to workers or individuals in remote areas of the planet, as they offer truly global coverage that is robust and reliable, while phones that utilise GEO networks act as a more affordable alternative to those whose needs are not as far reaching.

You may be surprised by the multitude of ways satellite phones can aid everyday life, ranging from operations and businesses, to the individual.

Who uses satellite phones?

Satellite phones enable those who work in remote locations to stay connected, even when well out of reach of cellular coverage.

This includes scientists based in areas such as the Polar Regions, soldiers conducting training or military operations, crews upon fishing vessels, and many more.

Satellite phones make these areas of work more efficient and easier than ever before. For example, a merchant seaman is able to speak to coastguards and other ships clearly rather than relying on radio, while scientists in remote corners of the world can communicate with each other and their headquarters effortlessly.

Workers also have a method of keeping in touch with friends and family; satellite phones can both make and receive calls.

Disaster response

Perhaps the most important use of satellite phones is for disaster aid.

Local infrastructure is often damaged when disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, or hurricanes strike, making cellular coverage impossible. Satellite phones enable coverage beyond terrestrial communications, which is vital to first responders who must be able to act quickly, and offers a fail-safe contingency plan.

In such scenarios, a satellite phone could mean the difference between life and death, as response teams are able to coordinate more effectively and act much more quickly.

An increasing number of people are buying personal satellite phones to protect themselves against losing contact in the event of disaster. A satellite phone is the only way to have a phone that will always work, no matter what.

The individual

People all across the world enjoy activities such as hiking, sailing, exploring, or remote hunting to get away from civilisation and enjoy nature.

However, this doesn’t always work out as planned. There are several risk factors involved when venturing into the wilderness, and being able to reach help if you need to is essential.

It is extremely likely that you won’t have phone service in these remote areas – a satellite phone offers a reliable solution, acting as a lifeline to emergency calls.

More simply, even those who decide to go off the grid often want a way to contact home. This is particularly useful for business persons who wish to contact their colleagues or tune into conference calls while holidaying in remote areas, such as the mountains or the seas.

With a satellite phone, staying connected is guaranteed.

Limitations

The data speeds offered by satellite phones may seem outdatedly slow (ranging from 128bps to 1.4Mbps), but this is more than enough for the functions they perform.  In the most remote corners of the planet you can’t expect 5G connection, but with a satellite phone you can browse the web or send emails wherever you are. Many devices also have a built in USB port, meaning you can connect your laptop or smartphone to the network too.

Phones that connect to GEO satellite networks experience issues such as interrupted coverage, non-global reach, and sensitivity to obstacles such as buildings or mountains that block connection.  However, satellite phones that connect to LEO networks do not experience such issues, and offer truly global coverage.

Cellhire offers satellite phones that fall under each of these categories, as the former acts as a cheaper alternative for explorers and sailors who stay within the 70th north and south parallels, while the latter acts as a fail-safe option to those in need of truly global coverage.

These come in the form of the Inmarsat IsatPhone 2 and two models of Iridium phone respectively. If you’re cost conscious and apprehensive to buy, you can rent these satellite phones from Cellhire so you can stay safe and connected anywhere on the planet for an affordable price.

Although guaranteeing global coverage, it is important you research local laws before you travel as some countries don’t permit the use of satellite devices.
