Telecom26 selects Cellusys for Mission Critical Steering of Roaming

Critical communications and devices rely on quality-based steering and real-time business intelligence

Swiss-based global mobile operator Telecom26 has integrated the award-winning Cellusys Steering of Roaming system into its operational stack to support key global enterprise customers, many of which rely on cellular connectivity for business critical communications. 

“Migrating from our previous steering of roaming system was painless and one of the best decisions we’ve ever made for our customers,” said Nicola Berardocco, CEO of Telecom26. “The accuracy and reporting power of the Cellusys system have changed the way we approach steering. The platform offers exceptional performance and we are pleased to be able to deliver even higher levels of quality and efficiency to our customers.”

In addition to critical IoT traffic, Telecom26 supports many large international organisations with critical communications, particularly for business travellers roaming worldwide. Already specialising in maritime, near-shore connectivity, and geo-redundant coverage, providing the strongest signal and highest available roaming quality is one of Telecom26’s key priorities. The ability to segment and steer devices and subscribers based on multiple criteria is essential for Telecom26. Cost and quality of service must be optimised, across a variety of use cases and customers.

To evaluate the effectiveness of the system, a 6-month PoC was launched which yielded compelling results. The Cellusys steering platform was chosen for its detailed segmentation and steering of devices and subscribers based on customer lists, device type, usage patterns and network access type from 2G to 5G-NSA. 

With the solution in place, Telecom26 can also implement steering policies that select for the best coverage, for critical use cases such as medical device connectivity and remote medical testing, as well as fleet management and tracking in environments with constrained RF coverage. Telecom26 supports all cellular carriers, enabling connectivity to any available networks. In some cases, devices may require only intermittent connectivity and can be steered based on the most favourable commercial models. 

“As the industry moves into VoLTE and 5G-SA roaming, we look forward to working closely with Telecom26 to support their unique customer base with the many challenges associated with both roaming and security.” said Brendan Cleary, CEO – Cellusys.
