The principle of the U-Mobility offering is quite simple. There is an application download (an ‘app’) onto a ‘smartphone’ which allows it to make calls over a data network. For example think pretty well of iPhone Viber or the Blackberry Messenger service (IM Plus talk to be added soon) – where the ‘smartphone’ uses the data service to carry a voice call. A bit like how Skype to Skype already works on computers.
Taking that one step further – the smartphone can obviously make a data (voice) call – so the clever part would be to allow it to connect and route through a private data network, and to break out through a PBX so calls can then be routed to other numbers (land line numbers, international calls, mobiles that are not data enabled etc).
Quite simply U-Mobility uses wifi as the way to connect to your data network, and your PBX can be configured to have SiP trunks and extensions (again, effectively data carrying voice calls).
The clever part is that once set-up properly the download app on the Smartphone contains the host Companies (your own - or a hosted service – such as DXP’s) static iP address – and if the Smartphone device is in range of a good enough WiFi signal to the internet- anywhere in the world – any calls will automatically ‘poll’ the internet for your static iP address and route traffic that way as a data call. Programmed correctly – a voice call to a point not connected as a data service could be landed at your own server, and routed out through your PBX at the lowest possible call charge rates.
For example, I could be sat in a hotel in America and be making calls to anywhere in the world – via my telephone system in the UK. So a call into an extension (or A.N.Other registered mobile in WiFi range) would be delivered Free of Charge!! A call from my US hotel room into a private number in the UK would go out as a local or national call – probably at less than 1 penny per minute! The reverse would also be true – any call TO that mobile that could go over the data network will avoid UK calls to mobile rates, plus international ‘landing’ fees!
The real clever part about U-Mobility is that you can ‘pair’ the users PBX system fully, and give a users PBX DDi number as a single number for everything – both calls in and out from the mobile. At any time, on incoming calls, either the Ddi or the mobile number will still come to his ‘phone. This frees users from having to port numbers, publish multiple directories, and allows them to truly embrace remote working.
The final point on U-Mobility is that it will seek a suitable Wifi service, and if it finds one it will seamlessly drop a GSM call (call over the mobile network) and route the call over the data network / internet – and vice versa. That is: if I was registered on my telephone system and I went for a wander around town whilst making one marathon call – due to the quality of your data network and Wifi infrastructure, the bulk of the call would be free, however every time that I wandered outside the range of the network (or any other FOC WiFi – such as BT Openzone – MacDonald’s, Starbuck’s etc**) the call would simply revert and re-establish over GSM, and then back onto Wifi as I came back in range.
In brief therefore, you have:
Single number global portability (and control)
Seamless transfer between Wifi and GSM and vice- versa.
Totally free ‘on net’ calls between all mobiles on your WiFi service.
Totally free calls to/from those staff who have both Smartphone AND Broadband at home.
Totally free calls to / from staff who can register onto the internet remotely and make /receive calls from that location – Globally!
Outbound mobile calls within your WiFi &data network would be forced over the cheapest route (via the ‘hosts’ PBX)
International roaming charges can be almost irradicated (the user would of course need to find a suitable WiFi connection / service)
This all adds up to the opportunity to make a huge reduction on your mobile calls costs.
