Why? What’s so smart about intelligent mobile data? Is it any different from the mobile services you can get on the high street? And why should you care?
Well, to spoil the answer to that last one: because intelligent mobile data is about to become your most important revenue stream.
Keep reading for the answers to the rest.
What is intelligent mobile data?
Intelligent mobile data puts you in total control over your solution. It’s not the rigid, take-it-or-leave-it connectivity that comes with standard mobile data from MNOs.
It works through a custom-built core network, direct relationships with mobile network operators, direct interconnects to operators, points-of-presence in plenty of data centres, and more.
(Worth noting: you don’t need all these to get started with intelligent mobile data. You just need a mobile data partner.)
What’s the difference between intelligent and regular mobile data?
How does intelligent mobile data hold up against fixed-line?
Take regular old steel. It’s pretty hard—but it’s the most brittle metal out there, and under the right conditions it’ll snap like a chocolate bar.
Sure, it’s fairly common and everyone knows it well; but it takes a lot of work to make it usable, it corrodes very quickly, and it can be extremely difficult or expensive to access in some places.
Fixed-line connectivity is just like steel. Costs an arm and a leg to acquire, is an absolute headache to install, and then buckles under pressure.
On the other hand, you have graphene. Made up of a single layer of carbon atoms, graphene is the strongest material known to mankind.
It’s 200 times more powerful than steel. It’s ultra-thin and It’s got so much mileage, you can cover 7 football fields with a sheet of graphene weighing a single ounce. It’s 1000 times lighter than paper, and conducts electricity better than any other known material.
Graphene is used in next-gen phones, VR tech, supercars—anything where resilience, power, and efficiency are key.
Intelligent mobile is the graphene of the connectivity world. It’s not just the strongest connectivity out there; it’s also the most durable and flexible.
And because of that, it’s the best way for you to future proof against
sunsetting tech, like the PSTN switch-off that’s around the corner.
So why does all this matter?
The world is hyper-focused on outcomes and digital convenience. Businesses don’t want cheap and cheerful service that’ll need constant maintenance, or high-end service that costs an arm and a leg. They want quality connectivity, delivered quickly, customised to fit their specific needs. And they don’t want to break the bank paying for it.
MSPs win bids where IoT and mobile data are a mandatory requirement, and secure their position on competitive government tenders.
ISPs don’t need to worry about competition from MNOs anymore, with the capability to offer intelligent mobile data services through their own networks with 4G mobile L2TP.
