Thanks to Transatel’s built-to-purpose technical architecture, Pure Cloud Solutions can now give clients in the UK a true Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) offer boasting plug-and-play capabilities. The launch is the first of its kind, enabling quick, large-scale deployment of FMC to address an ever-increasing demand from SME’s. The solution is fully integrated at network level for both fixed and mobile components. It is entirely cloud-based so end customers don’t have to install or develop their own technical infrastructure.

Why Transatel?

Transatel is the leading European Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE). Since its inception in 2000, it has launched over 150 Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO’s) and built a strong expertise in Machine-to-Machine connectivity. Since 2014, the company has offered an unparalleled cellular solution for global and multi-local data connectivity. They have eSIM capabilities for the Internet of Things (IoT), addressing the connected car, connected objects, and embedded connectivity markets.

“A turnkey FMC solution using Transatel is a life saver for small businesses in situations we see daily. Business development, retail, logistics, countless activities and departments can increase productivity through communications. Our idea is to make it as marketable and easily implementable as possible. Transatel will help us to do this!”

Darren Lake, Pure Cloud Solutions CEO and Founder

Unrivalled FMC partnership

Transatel’s role as the European leader in mobile virtual network operation (MVNO) enablement, combined with Pure Cloud Solutions’ innovative hosted cloud solutions and telephony services, has made it possible to bestow the characteristics, and thus, the benefits, of an MVNO to Fixed-Mobile Convergence. Here, FMC is, ready-to-use and fully integrated with Operating Support Systems, Business Support Systems and relevant apps.

Nonetheless, in contrast to the ‘lighter’ app-based FMC applications the market has to offer, the solution presented by Transatel and Pure Cloud Solutions is native and therefore offers the entire breadth of Unified Communications capabilities. These include seamlessly bridging office phone services to mobile devices, permitting the use of just one phone number and one voice mailbox. It also extends the capabilities of a PBX to smartphones and feature-phones alike, creating a virtual desk extension.

“With this project, we hope to demonstrate once again how we can bring innovation to a mature market. We’re proud to have been selected by Pure Cloud Solutions to deliver the perfect technical solution and business model.”
