With the consumption of mobile data continually on the rise, it’s clear this is becoming the preferred method of connectivity when compared to conventional fixed-line options.

To meet growing demand, broadband wholesalers are looking to diversify their services by introducing mobile data solutions.

The good news is you don’t have to commit to long-term contracts with large operators to obtain competitive pricing for mobile data solutions such as 3G and LTE.

With APN from Internet Solutions you can benefit from a bulk data service that provides access to the Internet or your corporate network over the MTN, Vodacom and Cell C mobile networks, on a usage-based payment model.

Diversify your product set with mobile data solutions

Given the high – and increasing – adoption of smart devices, mobility is now an integral part of any Internet service solution.

And because just about all smart devices (tablets, phones and laptops) use mobile data as their primary medium of connectivity, the addressable market is extensive … and growing daily. The needs of yesterday’s fixed-line-connectivity customer are not the same as those of today’s mobile-data customer – and you require a reliable solution to address those new needs.

APN enables you to develop mobile data products that will help your business remain relevant and competitive. By designing innovative solutions that meet the requirements of customers who want to stay connected, wherever they are, you can act as a single provider of connectivity solutions for their homes, offices and mobile devices. This means your customers can enjoy the benefit of having one provider, one bill, and one point of contact to meet their mobile data needs.

To give your customers a wider choice at competitive prices, you can offer mobile data services as individual products or bundle them with DSL and fibre-to- the-home (FTTH) services.

Mobility is also a key component of and enabler for the Internet of things (IoT) and telemetry services, which means you can use the mobile data solutions provided through APN to offer more than just Internet connectivity.

Shared or dedicated mobile network access

Using APN from Internet Solutions puts you in control of the mobile data services you provide.

Each SIM for 3G or LTE data is offered on a monthly basis, so there’s minimal risk to your business as there are no long-term commitments on individual SIM cards.

We provide connectivity on three different mobile networks (MTN, Cell C and Vodacom), so your customers are always connected. And you sign just one agreement – with us – which makes things much easier for you to manage.

An access point name (APN) is used to carry data over these extensive mobile networks back into the secure Internet Solutions environment. From here, it will either break out to the Internet or be routed into your private network, depending on the package you have selected:

  • Shared APN: Provides communal, pay-as- you-use access to the Internet over shared infrastructure.
  • Corporate APN: Provides dedicated access to your company’s private network. You have your own APN that runs on dedicated infrastructure.

 

Control measures like capping and threshold reporting are in place to prevent the shock of unforeseen high bills at the end of each month.

Flexible billing, 24/7 support

APN gives you access to the entire suite of Internet Solutions broadband services.

Usage, billing and the provisioning of SIM cards are made easy with our online platform, Mobility Manager. From here, you can also check your current data usage and usage bill, and download reports that help you better manage your service.

You pay only for the data you use, month to month, and our flexible, usage-based billing model promotes and rewards growth through volume discounting.

Our helpdesk is available 24/7 for technical and support queries, so you and your customers can enjoy maximum uptime with minimal disruptions.
