Recently, Metropolitan Telecommunications enhanced its portfolio of wireless connectivity services to now include MetTel (News - Alert) Mobile Integration. This strategic move is expected to help the company gain a better position within the business mobility industry.
U.S. businesses with international branch offices and global customers alike will surely be pleased with this new wireless connectivity solution as it allows for international calls to be made at landline packaged rates, helping to significantly cut costs.
The company’s offerings include nationwide voice and data plans, MiFi wireless hotspots, and advanced wireless connectivity solutions over the nation's top wireless network. This robust portfolio can benefit customers by powering simplified and seamless integration of wireless devices with office telephone systems.
Further, the solution extends VoIP and PBX (News - Alert) capabilities to mobile devices enabling employees to utilize a single office and mobile phone number. It also combines office and mobile voicemail in a single mailbox and transfers calls seamlessly between the two devices.
“MetTel Mobile Integration literally turns an employee's mobile phone into an office extension, with all the features, applications and cost savings inherent in the office-based phone system,” said Max Silber, MetTel's director of wireless services in a statement. “But unlike fixed business systems, integrated mobile devices will continue to operate during power failures or other landline service disruptions making business continuity another major benefit of MetTel's offering.”
Customers who want to subscribe to MetTel's new service will not have to switch out their existing mobile devices, as the company offers many handset options including the Express, an Android (News - Alert) smartphone. This facility is provided at no charge and is part of the MetTel Mobile Integration service package.
Late last month, TMCnet reported that the wireless connectivity market surpassed the $8 billion mark in 2011 and that wireless connectivity ICs will produce revenues close to $40 billion for Bluetooth, near-field communications (NFC), Wi-Fi, GPS and combo ICs through 2016.
