T-Mobile USA Introduces Secure Global Corporate Access for Business and Government Customers
Interoperable Solution with Single Login and Flat-rate Monthly Fee Help CIOs Manage Enterprise Mobility and Control Costs Regardless of Device, Platform or Network
BELLEVUE, Wash., October 11, 2011 — T-Mobile USA, Inc. today introduced its new T-Mobile® Global Corporate Access (GCA) solution, a direct response to the needs of multinational corporations (MNCs), U.S. enterprises, and government agencies who seek easy, secure access to corporate tools and resources from across the globe. In partnership with iPass Inc. and Deutsche Telekom AG, the T-Mobile GCA solution provides authenticated customer online access and support to more than 570,000 domestic and international hotspots regardless of device manufacturer, platform or network.
The new T-Mobile GCA solution offers a single login for up to five devices per subscriber, including smartphones, tablets and laptops, for one flat-rate monthly fee. As a result, this solution makes it easier for CIOs and IT decision makers to deliver and manage mobile connections while containing wireless mobility and international roaming costs for their organization. Other solution benefits include predictable, unified billing and web-based management, simple integration with a corporate VPN, ease of integration and deployment, and real-time consolidated or custom reporting.
“Today’s CIOs and IT decision makers continue to see rising enterprise mobility costs due to a staggering increase in the workforce’s use of multiple devices on different network technologies with different carriers while travelling domestically and abroad,” said Frank Sickinger, vice president, B2B, MNC and federal government at T-Mobile USA. “An interoperable global corporate access solution is the medicine our corporate and government customers need to ease their wireless mobility headaches.”
T-Mobile is actively working to support CIOs and IT decision makers as they navigate the challenges of telecom management and control in an increasingly mobile world. The new T-Mobile GCA solution complements other recently launched offerings that provide the quality of service, cost savings and connectivity that MNCs, government agencies and U.S. enterprises require, including enterprise device security and management, global telecom expense management, secure mobile data access, and enterprise messaging, as well as significant international voice and data roaming discounts and corporate “unlimited plan” offers.
To further help customers reduce domestic and international mobility costs, enhance coverage and improve productivity, T-Mobile also offers its Wi-Fi Calling for Business and Wi-Fi Calling for Government solutions on Android™, Symbian and BlackBerry® platforms. With T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi calling solutions, business and government customers may treat a long-distance or international call like a local call, minimizing international roaming fees when accessing available hotspots across the globe.
