The Best IoT Application Award recognises the company for its IoT data connectivity solution for the ongoing nationwide NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme. The programme has seen Cellhire provide UK and multi-network mobile data connections to over 2500 Covid-19 NHS England vaccination sites, enabling them to update patient records in real-time.

The Best Airtime Partner Portal Commendation recognises the company for its inhouse “Atlas SIM Management Portal”, which provides a single, secure website for partners to access their entire SIM base from 40 global mobile networks supplied by Cellhire. Partners are not limited to only UK MNOs O2, Vodafone and EE, like many competitor portals. Partners can manage International MNOs, UK and Global IoT Airtimes, and provision SIMs and eSIMs that have multi-IMSI functionality.

Running since 1995, the Mobile News Awards is the UK mobile channel’s biggest awards event judged by impartial, independent experts.

Cellhire UK Managing Director, Matt Bennett says “I am extremely proud of the Cellhire team, particularly for its at times round-the-clock dedication to the rollout and ongoing support of the mobile data connectivity part of the vaccine programme – and the success Cellhire has achieved at the Mobile News Awards.

“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 are still helping to manage the vaccination of millions of people as quickly as possible.

“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.

“As a direct partner of Vodafone, O2 and EE, Cellhire is keen to expand its partnerships in the channel and to that end we are actively seeking additional resellers for our partner programme,” says Bennett. “These resellers would typically want a comms partner with a track record in providing voice, data and IoT via multiple direct network solutions that are competitive, flexible and innovative and all supported by our market-leading portal.”

Global M2M and IoT mobile data specialist Cellhire has appointed Duncan Griffiths to the newly created position of Head of Sales – M2M & IoT Connectivity. His responsibilities include leading the strategic M2M and IoT sales focus for Cellhire in the UK, France and across Europe to drive additional growth in this space. He joins Cellhire from BT, where he was Head of Sales – M2M and IoT Connectivity.

Duncan Griffiths, Head of Sales – M2M & IoT Connectivity

Griffiths’ 35 years’ experience in mobile includes 10 years at BT in the Head of Sales position, where he worked with different MNOs and service providers and developed a deep understanding of the M2M and IoT connectivity market.

At Cellhire Griffiths will lead the Group’s strategic sales focus for M2M & IoT connectivity, helping to shape business identity and bring new products and solutions to market.

Griffiths comments, “It’s a significant and exciting time to join Cellhire. As a direct wholesale partner of the top three UK MNOs, and through the capabilities of its full MVNO eSIMsmart, Cellhire offers extremely competitive M2M and IoT commercials across a wide range of networks and tariffs. Additionally, Fixed IP, Custom APN, Multi-IMSI, as well as access to standard roaming networks and 40+ global local network agreements, mean Cellhire can offer roaming and in-country deployments, ensuring commercial and network flexibility.

“Additionally, Cellhire provides real-time SIM control across multiple networks, through its self-service Atlas SIM Management & Billing Portal, which employs network-level APIs.

“Cellhire’s capability aligns to what customers demand in deploying critical M2M and IoT solutions, including technology and network choices on a local and global basis.

Duncan’s specialist knowledge will support the business globally, but his main focus and remit is to drive sales in the UK, France and across Europe.

“Duncan joins us from BT where he has been Head of Sales – IoT Connectivity Solutions for the past 10 years.

Cellhire déploie la technologie eSIM pour connecter les journalistes en Ukraine

Cellhire utilise son réseau mobile Full MVNO “eSIMsmart” pour fournir une connectivité mobile à ses clients en Ukraine, par l’envoi d’un QR code directement aux utilisateurs.

Cellhire soutient les nombreux média sur le terrain en leur permettant de se connecter à Internet sur les 3 réseaux mobiles ukrainiens et de communiquer avec leur rédaction / famille au meilleur prix. Les journalistes déjà sur place ont pu profiter du service eSIM, qui s’installe directement dans leur smartphone, sans avoir besoin d’une carte sim physique.

Martyn Stevens, PDG du groupe Cellhire, déclare : “L’invasion de l’Ukraine est très largement couverte par nos clients médias, qui rendent compte heure par heure de la situation dans le pays. Notre solution eSIM est une bouée de sauvetage essentielle, permettant aux utilisateurs de rester connectés et de continuer à diffuser les informations et les images en mobilité.”

“Grâce à notre MVNO eSIMsmart, nous fournissons des profils eSIM au lieu de cartes SIM physiques, ce qui signifie que la connectivité mobile est fournie instantanément par voie hertzienne en Ukraine, évitant ainsi les problèmes de distribution logistique liés à la livraison de cartes SIM physiques dans le pays.”

En plus de la connectivité mobile eSIM, Cellhire fournit également des téléphones satellites, comme solution d’urgence essentielle. Les téléphones satellites sont particulièrement utiles en cas de panne du réseau mobile local, de black-out ou d’incidents potentiels liés à la cyber-sécurité en Ukraine.

Martyn Stevens ajoute : “Comme de nombreux opérateurs mobiles européens, Cellhire a déployé plusieurs formules d’assistance, GSM et satellites, à travers ses réseaux partenaires pour aider ses utilisateurs en Ukraine à maintenir les communications »

Cellhire deploys eSIM technology to connect media journalists in Ukraine, avoiding in-country delivery challenges.

Global connectivity provider and MVNO Cellhire is utilising its eSIM based mobile network, “eSIMsmart”, to provide mobile connectivity over-the-air to customers in Ukraine.

The eSIM based mobile connectivity is essential to ensuring individuals are contactable and have a communications lifeline. Cellhire is supporting many companies, broadcasters and media journalists that are already on the ground or heading to Ukraine to report and broadcast on the situation.

Martyn Stevens, Cellhire Group CEO, says, “The invasion of Ukraine has created a crisis for companies with employees located there. Our eSIM solution is an essential lifeline in these crucial times, keeping users on the ground connected.”

“Utilising our MVNO eSIMsmart, we are providing eSIM profiles instead of physical SIM cards meaning mobile connectivity is provisioned instantaneously over-the-air in Ukraine, avoiding the logistical distribution challenges faced delivering physical SIMs in-country.”

In addition to eSIM mobile connectivity, Cellhire is also providing satellite phones to many customers travelling to Ukraine as an essential emergency backup. Satellite phones are particularly beneficial in case of local mobile network outages, blackouts or potential cyber-security related incidents in Ukraine.

Newly launched white-label SIM management & billing portal puts indirect partners and resellers back in control.

York-based global telecommunications provider Cellhire launches the first phase of an infinitely tiered white-label version of its Atlas SIM Management & Billing portal. The new development will enable Indirect partners and resellers to offer a branded portal to their customer and customer’s customer; complete with SIM control, usage and billing information, alerting and spend cap control, across multiple networks.

White Label Portal

Phase one offers partners the ability to segment their SIM base and create fully branded portals for their customers offering views of the SIM base, SIM status, data usage and billing information. The brand-agnostic white-label approach to all alerts and emails allows reseller partners the chance to send alerts directly to the customer chain. In addition, customers can also self-serve SIM suspension, reactivation and SIM swaps 24×7. Phase two will add further aspects of SIM control including the setting of spend caps and alert levels as well as greater control for partners themselves.

Cellhire UK Managing Director, Matt Bennett, says, “The creation of a brand-agnostic white-label portal is in response to channel demand and complements Cellhire’s extensively-used Atlas SIM Management & Billing portal. The white-label approach will be a real aid when onboarding new partners and further enhances why UK Resellers who want to provide IoT and Voice & Data services to their customers, choose Cellhire as their preferred partner.”

Cellhire Group Chief Technology Officer, Peter Whelerton says “Cellhire has an excellent track record of listening to partner requests, white-labelling was top of the list. The white-label version of the portal will provide an infinite number of tiers allowing every level of the supply chain to offer a portal in their branding to their customers with all the main SIM control functions, billing, and usage information. The white-label portal, like all Cellhire portals, has been created in-house by an expert and resilient team.”
