Launch of the Telecom26 Innovation Programme
In order to stay one step ahead in today’s world of hyperconnected, ubiquitous connectivity and constant digital transformation, innovation is an absolute requirement for any organisation. That’s why Telecom26 has launched its new Innovations Programme – a ‘sandbox’ for creating and developing new solutions across all verticals, with the aim of unlocking new opportunities and realising the potential of ubiquitous connectivity.
Telecom26 has invested in a brand new, state-of-the-art innovations centre to provide an environment in which innovators can create, test and develop business-critical connectivity solutions for all-Gs, Wi-Fi, LoRA and NB-IoT, in both private and public network scenarios.
The programme establishes a creative, collaborative environment to enable the exchange of knowledge and to bring ideas to fruition. Telecom26 will provide resource investment and its own product development team to encourage innovators to develop concepts utilising Telecom26’s connectivity ecosystem.
The Innovation Programme methodology comprises the following protocol: Enquire à Conceive à Analyse à Realise à Construct à Introduce.
The goal of the programme is to create a collaborative environment for the co-generation of ideas and concepts that lead to the launch of innovative new connectivity solutions. It aims to create a constant flow of unique ideas and concepts that can then be rigorously tested and developed prior to large commercial launch. It will encourage rapid iteration, testing and trialling of solutions, while adopting a holistic view towards solving some of the complex connectivity challenges that the industry is facing today.
For successful co-innovators the programme will help to increase brand equity and provide the chance to work with industry leaders in connectivity. The Innovation Programme also aims to promote partnering with established public and private network vendors, while building an ecosystem of like-minded enterprises, educational establishments and individuals.
As well as motivating, attracting and harnessing talent and resources to build new partnerships, the goal is to ensure that a high percentage of innovations gain rapid market acceptance, through the rigorous prototyping, analysis and testing of potential solutions in order to accelerate the delivery of unique and strategic connectivity solutions.
Telecom26 Celerway Modem
The programme is already bearing with fruit, with the launch of its first solution – The Telecom26 Celerway Dual Modem Router , a collaborative solution that combines Celerway’s device management software with Telecom26’s connectivity and services management to create a unique solution that ensures constant mobile connectivity with the highest Quality of Service (QoS) available.
The router provides a fully managed service offering in a single package with the ability to securely access multiple technologies, including 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, WiFi, NB-IoT, and Satellite networks. Because it uses multiple modems each with multi-IMSI SIMs, the router offers connectivity to the best QoS network – while one modem is serving connectivity, the other is constantly scanning for and seeking the best possible available network to every device.
