Centile and Transatel announce delivery of their protected MVNO solution

Demonstrations at Channel Live, NEC Birmingham

Sophia Antipolis, France, 4 September 2018 – Centile, one of Europe’s leading providers of Cloud PBX, unified communications and collaboration for service providers, and Transatel, leading European MVNO enabler, have announced that they will be demonstrating the Security-as-a-Service capability that underpins their new FMC solution in the UK, protecting users accessing the EE Network.

The two companies, who first announced their UK relationship last September, will be exhibiting together on booth #552 at this year’s Channel Live in Birmingham, September 11-12 to share how the solution has evolved.

The solution enables service providers to create customisable and mobile-focused packages for their customers. It also provides users with advanced fixed mobile convergence (FMC), giving them full, seamless access to information and communications, regardless of device, network or apps. Via Transatel, customers have access to the EE network, recently named the UK’s best-performing network*.

Said Justin Hamilton-Martin, Regional Associate Director for Centile Telecom Applications, “The past year has really seen interest in ‘mobile-focused’ and FMC grow in the UK. Our joint ‘mobile first’ and ‘FMC-in-a-box’ technology solutions are based on two powerful ingredients: Centile’s ISTRA Cloud PBX Solution, which provides sophisticated, flexible IP based UC; and Transatel’s market-proven MVNO platform, backed by its extensive support and R&D resources. With the Security-as-a-Service overlay, this is a simple and safe way to step into this very attractive mobile space. The ARPU and customer-retention levels are very appealing to resellers and we are seeing significant interest from the market.”

Centile acquisition and market growth
The past 12 months have also seen the growth of Centile’s business in the UK, with new service provider customers including Pure Cloud Solutions and Just Telecomms. This summer, Centile also announced its acquisition by Swyx and Within Reach Group, making it part of what has been called the new leading European provider of UCaaS technology, already serving over two million users in the region.

Services supported by the ISTRA platform include PBX features, unified messaging, auto attendant, voicemail to email, boss/secretary filtering, call barring, groups management, IVRs, ACDs, audio and video conferencing with screen and file sharing, and presence. With built-in FMC, the solution also enables enterprises to benefit from innovative features such as: Call Line Identity (CL) for both fixed and mobile outgoing calls; convergence voicemail; mobile phone status; convergent calls history; self-care for both fixed and mobile lines; and voice call continuity.
