Gamma announces its plans to launch a new business mobile service in the first half of 2016 using the core mobile network infrastructure that it acquired in 2014 and has been expanding upon since. This core contains all the functionality of a mobile network and is based on the latest Ericsson software build, including 4G, and is capable of supporting emerging technologies such as ‘Voice over WiFi’ and VoLTE. This new service will give channel partners the same levels of customer ownership and control they have over fixed-line services, combined with a compelling mobile service designed exclusively for business use.
Gamma has selected Three, based on its excellent independent performance results, to provide the primary radio access in the UK, with separate roaming agreements also now in place.
The new service will include 4G as standard on all tariffs, as well as improved data monitoring with near real-time mediation and billing and more flexible data usage alerts. With this new capability Gamma believes it is well placed to help the channel provide increasing converged fixed and mobile services to the UK business market.
Rob Davis, Head of Converged Products at Gamma commented: “Following the acquisition of a core network in 2014, we’ve been working hard to build a unique new service that addresses the needs and challenges of today’s business market. This gives us full control of the mobile service, in addition to the control we already have over our fixed voice and data network. With the ability to work with multiple large carriers coupled with the flexibility and care of being a channel focussed provider, we believe the new Gamma Mobile proposition gives our channel partners the best of both worlds. We recognise the importance of mobility in an increasingly converged world and see this new service as a core component and the foundation for Gamma’s converged offering moving forward, enabling us to take our portfolio of voice, data and mobile solutions to the next level.”
