Last mile connectivity remains a challenge in developing countries. Businesses need a smart last mile solution that is also secure, reliable, provides investment protection and at the same time, keeps costs low. Serial connections still offer a low cost connectivity option for businesses that generate basic network traffic minus video or voice. Cellular wireless technologies offer a reliable and cost effective way of connecting people and places where wired connectivity is not available. It is growing into a widely used connectivity option especially for small site connectivity such as ATMs, Retail, Gas Stations and the like. However, cellular wireless is often assumed to be a complicated means of providing connectivity due to ever evolving technology and diverse Service Provider configurations. What if your business could connect to the world through any Service Provider in your region from the same network device?
