Mobile service providers do not traditionally offer flexible wireless and LTE options and often lock customers into fixed term contracts. Fortunately, Reflex Solutions is a licenced wholesale partner of Telkom Mobile and Vodacom and can offer a monthly per meg billing option on sim cards. LTE is ideal for mobile workers or as a fixed backup solution and it allows for a pay-as-you-use service.
There are three types of LTE data connectivity:
Consumer internet (capped data bundles)
Users are managed independently from one another where they work with a capped solution that can be topped up when required. Reports can be compiled on each employee’s usage.
Corporate internet (usage-based billing)
Users are centrally managed, and a total data usage limit is purchased for the entire company. Users may have a data limit assigned to them. Reports can be compiled on each employee’s usage and on the total company usage. Pricing is done per megabyte on the total company usage.
Corporate APN (direct corporate network access)
Reflex Solutions provides fast, secure connectivity from mobile devices to your corporate WAN. All users connect directly to the corporate network and can access all of the company’s applications. Users can access the internet through the MPLS internet breakout and their access can be controlled via the centrally managed firewall as if they were in the office. All firewall rules that are in place for users while they are at the office apply to users when they use their LTE cards. This limits abuse and assists your business in applying user policies. Users may have a data limit assigned to them while a cap may be applied to the entire business. Reports can be compiled on each employee’s usage and on the total company usage.
