Tango Networks has announced an eSIM solution that adds a business-controlled extension to a mobile phone. Mobile-X Extend is designed for organisations using bring-your-own-device, or BYOD, schemes and provides a full-featured, secure and controlled business phone on employees’ devices.
The solution ensures employees can keep their personal communications separate and private, whilst allowing them to use their own mobile phone for business communications with a business identity.
Douglas Bartek, CEO of Tango Networks, explained, “Today’s work-from-anywhere business world demands that we rethink how our employees communicate. Mobile-X Extend is a first-of-its-kind service that reinvents mobile communications for today’s corporate users. It transforms not only how we communicate in commerce, but it greatly improves company operational efficiency and employee productivity. Now employees working in any location can be as reachable and responsive as if they were in the office at a desk phone.”
By integrating into unified communications platforms or UCaaS services, all business calls and texts on a personal mobile phone automatically use the business identity and can be captured and recorded for archiving or monitoring. All personal calls and texts remain private and external to company control.
Andrew Bale, general manager of cloud services, Tango Networks, added, “The mobile network is the most extraordinary machine that mankind has ever built. Today we give individual businesses unprecedented control over that machine. This represents the greatest advance in business communications technology in a generation.”
Mobile-X Extend is mobile native, using the mobile network and the device’s native interface for all communications and features. The service offers business-quality communications and requires no apps or special phone clients and no training. The offering is available for customer pilots now and will be generally available in 1Q2022. The service is sold solely through Tango Networks’ value-added resellers and communications service provider partners.
