SpiderCloud Wireless, a provider of a small cell managed services platform, recently partnered with Tango Networks (News - Alert), a company that transforms mobile phones into enterprise office phones, to deliver mobile unified communication (UC) services and advanced PBX functions to small cell networks in response to the growing demand for mobility in the workplace.
“We’re pleased to work with SpiderCloud to help enable unmatched mobile connectivity and Mobile UC applications for mobile operators and their enterprise customers,” said Brenda Boehm, president and CEO of Tango Networks, in a statement. “Our market-leading mobile UC applications and extensive PBX (News - Alert) integration deliver a truly unique solution that provides the seamless mobility users require to effectively conduct business while on-the-go.”
Their joint approach targets small cell systems and provides enterprise customers with mobile coverage and capacity inside buildings by extending mobile UC services and high-quality wireless access instead of requiring a special handset or dialer application or by forcing mobile voice over Wi-Fi.
Combining SpiderCloud’s Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) system and Tango’s Small Cell Connect provides secure and guaranteed connectivity between small cells, enterprise unified communications, PBX systems and mobile networks, enabling users to use their mobile like a desk phone. The E-RAN system consists of two elements, the SpiderCloud Radio Node (SCRN) and the SpiderCloud Services Node (SCSN), making it possible to “densify” an in-building network without impacting the rest of the network.
“SpiderCloud and Tango Networks’ joint development efforts help speed up adoption of mobile operator-led unified communications services inside the enterprise,” said Michael Gallagher, CEO of SpiderCloud Wireless. “A managed small cell network that provides reliable mobile voice and data access, integrated with the enterprise PBX and IP telephony network, will help enterprise customers save time, money and resources as mobile operators become a trusted partner for mobile services beyond minutes and devices.”
Both companies will be attending Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in Barcelona this week. To stay up-to-date on the latest happenings at the event, be sure to visit our MWC coverage site.
