How to ensure your customers passengers are reachable at all times, on their own Mobile!

A medium sized global company boasting a couple of hundred million dollars in revenues delivering connectivity services on board of vessels, aircraft and remote locations was struggling to find a solution to the following problem;

“The individual users on a compound, vessel or plane could make calls to the outside world however people in the outside world could not reach them if they were “off the grid” on their regular mobile numbers”.

Of course, if one knows where the particular individual is it would be possible to get a hold of them using a satellite phone number or a specific VoIP extension on a local WAN behind the VSAT. However, you don’t always know where people are….

The easiest thing would be to always get a hold of someone using their familiar, known, mobile number.

For one of their larger customers this was such a pressing problem that they threatened to take their business elsewhere if no solution was found to fix this.

iVent mobile with its unique combined background in Mobile and Satellite technology rose to the challenge. We invented the (now patented) technology to make any mobile phone subscriber reachable for outbound and inbound calls and messages, wherever they are, even when without 3G/4G coverage.

MyPhone is an Application (“App”) you can simply install on your smartphone. It works on any IOS or Android smartphone, without any SIM changes required.

It allows you to place and receive calls and messages using your normal SIM and smartphone everywhere on the globe where WiFi is available. It is not provider or backbone dependent. Everyone with a regular (mobile) phone can call you, also when you are outside GSM-coverage. The caller does not require the same App or anything else, he or she just makes a regular call to your mobile number.

The App and the specific technology behind it saved the day for this company as they were able to present their customer with the perfect solution to their problem.

Most notable is, that iVent was able to come up with the first design for the solution in a mere 3 weeks. The engineering and full implementation were completed within 4 months only!

This flexibility and quick turnaround is exemplary for iVent. The type of solution is a testament to the innovativeness and type of lateral thinking that characterizes the company.

iVent won the company as one of its first customers based on this solution. The company was able to retain their customer and grow their loyalty and thus, their revenue.

Since, the customer and iVent have enjoyed a mutually beneficial prospering relationship. iVent has developed a multitude of Value Added Services for the customer, every time further enhancing the user experience of the end-user.

Original thinking and delivering on time and as promised continued to be the key words for all of these projects.

This application is now used or being rolled out for use in (bomb) shelters, on (military) compounds, on rigs and on vessels.

Buying global network infra, the smart way!

Hardware and software supply chains and the cost benefits of a unified approach, saving 20% or more on procurement.
Organisations supporting global networks in i.e. Maritime, Government, and Energy, depend on a multitude of providers and technologies. Still, they often source Network infrastructure, SW or HW components locally.

This leads to several inherent challenges, as the local supplier doesn’t grasp the full scope of the business and total technical requirements. Subsequently, fragmented design leads to suboptimal performance. Scattered procurement leads to higher costs. Also, in providing support the local suppliers lack the complete overview.

The solution is a supplier that understands your business and network requirements and has direct relationships with global suppliers, leading to immediate savings.

Network monitoring and traffic analytics

10x the number of subscribers, 5x the number of networks and overhead down by 90% at the same time!
In a complex global network environment, problems can and will occur. This leads to support calls and requests. So normally as you grow your customer base the number of calls will go up and so will the number of staff probably. Especially if you increase the number and types of technologies and networks at the same time.

In this case, whilst adding extra complexity and growing the customer base by 1000% within 5 years, our customer was still able to reduce its support staff by deploying sophisticated though simple “single user plane” netMonitoring and netAnalytics tools!

Extending satellite with LTE, a single network

How to save at least 40% on your communication costs
Nowadays having a broadband connection to the internet at all times is a requirement for both business and social purposes. Until recently at sea this would always imply using satellite connectivity.

However, many vessels operate or sail relatively close to shore. With new 4G antenna technologies using mobile networks thus becomes a viable option.

One needs to secure good LTE-price/quality along the route and smart routing decisions need to be implemented. However, if one does so more throughput at better rates is in reach.

This benefits the ease of operation as well as the well-being of the crew

Unlocking -off the grid- Camps

a single solution applicable to all sites, the staff can use their own smartphone and you save money as well.
As a Service-Provider your customer has operations in remote areas in multiple countries and communication is of the essence. For optimal functionality and ease, ideally, they simply use the same mobile phone they also use back home. Most sites however are not covered by any of the local operators.

Instead of reverting to all sorts of more complex, costly solution that may or may not work based on local circumstances, options are available to facilitate the use of the simple smartphone.

If you understand the core GSM network technology and the regulatory playing field there is a way forward.

Network interoperability, a platform to build value

How to multiply revenues and margins by delivering value and simplifying operations at the same time.
Customers are demanding. So, as a system integrator in a highly competitive BtB market the tendency is to add -network- components and suppliers.

Still, users using different solutions under different circumstances want to have a uniform experience, regardless. At the same time, to grow as a business, your offering needs to be replicable and scalable.

iVent engineered and implemented the infrastructure and SW platforms so our US Fortune 100 company could deliver optimal user experience in a scalable way allowing them to exponentially grow their revenue within a few years.
