NTT launches Mobile Workplace Connect for increased enterprise productivity and securityFacing enterprise concerns about the Post-Covid, remote workplace, NTT’s Center of Excellence for global, cellular IoT connectivity (Transatel) is introducing a comprehensive solution for enterprise mobility. London, United Kingdom – 13 October 2020 – NTT Ltd., a world-leading global technology services provider, today announced the launch of its new Mobile Workplace Connect solution, complementing the existing suite of services for the intelligent workplace. Mobile Workplace Connect offers immediate, secure and global cellular connectivity for employees, for any endpoint device: laptops, tablets, smartphones, or any other device with a 3G/4G modem. The comprehensive service brings together global 2G/3G/4G access, eSIM/SIM profiles and SIM cards, a unified SIM management web portal and worldwide service support. With Mobile Workplace Connect, businesses will benefit from a reliable, secure and quick-to-deploy connectivity solution for their nomadic and remote workforce. Thanks to this service, companies can secure the access to their Information Systems and enforce their Data Security policy by ensuring that employee communications never reach the public internet, at any stage. Mobile Workplace Connect also helps companies control their SIM fleet and activity, as well as their costs, independently: they can either rely on NTT’s 190+ locally-priced connectivity agreements around the world, or onboard their own, to compose their connectivity footprint as they wish.
With a single integration and a single SIM SKU, global companies deploy the service worldwide with a single SIM stock and implement service evolutions in real-time. Furthermore, they can guarantee that their employees benefit from the best quality local networks wherever they may be working, with low latency and maximum bandwidth, thereby increasing company productivity.
“The global pandemic and increase in remote working has revealed the limitations of home Wi-Fi and the underlying risks for businesses. Enterprise mobility programs are now, more than ever, managing the trade-off between employee productivity and IS security. Mobile Workplace Connect offers a simple solution to the challenge, with the added and notable advantage of controlling costs.” says Jason Goodall. Chief Executive Officer, NTT Ltd.
“Connectivity overhead is becoming an issue. Forecasts for data usage are exponential. The reason lies in the multiplication of devices for task workers, the rise in the numbers of nomadic employees and the prevalence of cloud computing for knowledge workers.”
Mobile Workplace Connect also offers some advanced services:
- Data services
These services include traffic control (private APN, traffic filtering and classification, network switch), traffic isolation (VPN and direct peering & interconnect options) and traffic analytics (near-real time CDRs).>
- (e)SIM services
These services include a customized SIM form factor (1FF / 2FF / 3FF / 4FF / MFF2 and rugged SIMs), customized (e)SIMs (Service Provider Name and SIM printing) and optional devices (Wi-Fi hotspot supply).
- Interface services
NTT supplies APIs for SIM lifecycle management (activate, suspend and terminate), for data plan management (subscription, inventory and catalog management) and for notification (data plan subscription events and subscriber events).
- Support services
The service offers access to advanced support, through a dedicated support officer and professional services such as solution design, training, consulting and marketing.
