Managed service provider SmartCIC has collaborated with communications enabler Bics to expand existing carrier relationships for its Cellsmart platform and to benefit customers from direct connectivity to mobile network operators.

The Cellsmart platform allows enterprises to deploy cellular solutions that have freedom to roam across networks globally.

It analyses local mobile network performance and provides insights and recommendations for optimising enterprise applications.

It provides the end-to-end planning, network selection, routing and backhaul solutions, equipment deployment, management, monitoring and support for enterprise fixed wireless networks. It supports the deployment of 5G networking and has recently achieved 5G certification from 5G wireless network edge solutions Cradlepoint.

“We see an opportunity to use our engineering heritage and network expertise enabling more enterprises to benefit from the agility and flexibility that cellular can bring to their businesses. Together with Bics, we are increasing options for enterprises to switch between more MNOs across a global footprint. This intelligence-driven, optimised network performance means they benefit from enterprise-capable fixed wireless internet connectivity,” comments SmartCIC CEO Toby Forman.

“Cellsmart is bringing new speed and intelligence to mobile deployments and making it simpler for enterprises to use cellular solutions to support their operations.”

Bics says its network connects more than 700 mobile network operators across 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G and Nb-IoT. Its ecosystem links over 5 billion consumers and 150 million IoT devices around the world.

This footprint will make it possible for Smart CIC to expand its existing carrier relationships giving users the flexibility to switch more carriers and deliver network performance across fixed wireless services.

“Seamless global connectivity is becoming increasingly important to enterprises, and will be the driver for growth in our digital age,” says Bics head of IoT Luc Vidal-Madjar.

“By working with Bics, SmartCIC’s Cellsmart ensures barriers to deploying mobile technology are removed and customers can instead focus on innovation.”
