Metropolitan Telecommunications (MetTel) announced Wednesday it has added two more services, MetTel Mobile Device Management and MetTel Wireless Backup, to its wireless portfolio. Both are available through the company’s indirect sales channel.
The news follows the launch last month of MetTel Mobile Integration, which extends PBX functions to wireless devices.
Based on mobile-security software from Airwatch, MetTel MDM is cloud-based solution that gives companies the ability to secure, monitor and support smartphones, iPhones and tablets both personal and corporate owned. It is available across all wireless networks, operating systems and devices. MetTel MDM can reset a personal mobile device to its original settings and remove all company applications and access when a device is lost or stolen, or an employee leaves a company.
Unlike other offerings, MetTel MDM is included at no extra charge with MetTel wireless services. The savings from bundled MDM alone can amount to as much at $1,000 a month for a company with a mobile workforce of 200,” said Max Silber, MetTels director of wireless services.
MetTel offers a number of nationwide options and packages. The companys end-to-end mobile life-cycle management includes services from technology alignment and rate plan optimization to device recycling.
Another addition to the companys wireless services portfolio is MetTel Wireless Backup, a fixed wireless solution that ensures that data traffic is automatically redirected to a secure, private wireless network when primary circuits fail. MetTel offers around-the-clock monitoring at three MetTel Network Operations Centers 24/7, 365 days a year.
“We also allow customers to pool their data allowances across all locations so backup capacity unused at one location can be applied toward another location hit by an outage,” Silber said.
