UK Taxi firms benefit from Roaming SIM Managed WAN platform
Roaming SIM designed for UK Taxi and Private Hire firms for consistent and robust M2M SIM connectivity
Exel Technology’s Mercury Taxi Booking and Despatching software is a market leading solution for the UK Taxi Industry. It provides an efficient, reliable and accurate service to both operators and passengers alike. The reliability of the Mercury Software is centered on being able to provide consistent and robust connectivity, enabling taxi drivers to send and receive timely information dependably from their vehicles. So, for Exel Technology to be successful having SIM cards with roaming capacity is of vital importance. JT M2M provide a Managed Mobile WAN Connectivity solution with open roaming SIM providing the highest possible levels of connectivity.
Finding the Best Roaming SIM Network Connectivity
Exel Technology was searching for a company who could provide SIMs with the highest possible levels of network connectivity. So they focused their attention on finding roaming SIMs with multi-network coverage across the UK. This requires the SIM provider to have highly resilient network architecture, quick and accurate monitoring capability together with dynamic coverage control.
Managed Mobile WAN Connectivity Solution with Dynamic Coverage Control
With over 600 roaming agreements operating in nearly every country, JT M2M offered the non-steered, open roaming SIM that allowed Mercury to freely attach and detach from all four network operators in the UK.
JT M2M provided a Managed Mobile WAN Connectivity solution, which enabled Exel Technology to manage their SIMs effectively using the NOMAD SIM Management Platform.
With real-time data obtained from a Diameter server, it enabled Mercury to access information on session activity, network attachment and SIM cell ID as well as usage information on the past 48 hours of sessions.
The Dynamic Coverage Control feature enables Exel Technology to dynamically bring networks in and out of usage for diagnostic purposes. If a single device is having issues, it can be temporarily removed from a network, the SIM will be rebooted and re-tested.
Most Reliable Mobile Connectivity Performance for UK Taxi and Private Hire Companies
JT M2M Open Roaming SIM enables Mercury to operate across all 4 UK Networks (Vodafone, EE, O2, and Three) providing the highest possible levels of connectivity. The SIMs are attached to the strongest signal, with automatic switchover between networks taking a second or less. JT assisted Exel Technology with maintaining its efficient, reliable and accurate service across the UK and will continue supporting it to grow in the future.
