China Telecom and Transatel are opening the commercial services in China for inbound roaming LTE data services. Transatel will benefit from the new infrastructure via its SIM 901, a global data SIM card launched in 2015 and offering cellular coverage in over 100 countries and destinations.
SIM 901 is a cellular SIM card with eSIM capabilities currently commercialized by Transatel to OEMs and service providers, to enable devices with ‘always on’ connectivity. The offer is based on an international MCC (Mobile Country Code), and roaming agreements negotiated individually with over 100 mobile network operators worldwide. Via its partnership with China Telecom, Transatel will help laptop and tablet manufacturers provide their end-users with an alternative to Wi-Fi when accessing the internet.
Transatel can help onboard brands wishing to offer connectivity via the Windows Store for Windows 10-equipped laptops and tablets. Future brands selling data bundles within the Windows Store will allow their Chinese customers to benefit from 4G connectivity through the China Telecom network. This opportunity will also be available outside of the Store.
