TransNova® Mobile Gateways - GSM Gateway
The TransNova® Mobile
(GSM Gateway - TMG) is the solution for
cost effective direct connection in to the mobile networks.
The TMG allows your PABX to access from the ISDN
telecommunications directly into the GSM Network, which can then provide savings
of up to 65% on fixed network to Mobile telephone connections. The TMG is assisted in
this with the high performance Advanced Least Cost Router (ALCR) which determines the cheapest route
that a call can take.
The TMG can also be used as a back-up in case of ISDN
network failure, "Disaster Recovery". The GSM Mobile Gateway provides the possibility to cut costs in the
Calls from the desktop telephone to the GSM network can
be expensive, so the TransNova®
Mobile Gateway routes these calls from the PBX to the GSM Network via
it’s own SIMcards and GSM Engines converting the call, instead of Fixed Line to
GSM, but to a GSM to GSM call, in some cases this could be a cost reduction of
up to 50 percent.
These calls can be made to different network providers
as required and routing is automatic through the Least Cost Routing software
within the Transnova®
Fixed Net Least Cost Routing is also incorporated within the System and once
configured can be changed according to requirements.
Additional features include the possibility to link all
outstations/other branch offices within a company to the same
Transnova® Mobile Gateway
thus providing the
same cost cutting features to Sales reps or other company employees, who
are not not in the same location as the main company headquarters.
With the Call-Back
function, which is possible Nationally/Internationally, GSM or Fixed
Network, the cutting of GSM phone charges can be realised. When for example employees are on
off site visits, he calls a certain number within the TransNova®
Mobile Gateway, the Gateway
will immediately call him back (without the employee noticing that it is
Call-Back). As a consequence the company needs no longer to review it’s employee’s telephone bills and
is also still realising cheaper rate Mobile and International calls.
Permission classes can be set in a priority list for which employees can
dial internationally, nationally or internally on the Call Back system, so
giving the Company complete control of charges and telephone accessibility.
- A cost effective access to the GSM telecommunications
Network for incoming and outgoing calls.
- Fast GSM call set-up. No more bottlenecks with calls
having to be routed first through the fixed network.
- Fixed Network Least Cost Router, allowing the GSM
Gateway to be positioned before or after the PABX.
- Precise Charge information (CDR'S) for both GSM down
to individual SIMcards and Fixed Network calls can be generated in real time.
- Call Back functions in all configurations, e.g. Fixed
Network/GSM National or International.
- Full Remote control management
system, via Local connection, ISDN dial-in or via IP, allowing Real time
monitoring down to each individual SIMcard/GSM Channel and also reloading of SIMcards, for changes in
budgeting whether time or price dependant.
