Making more flexible connections - GSM technology and the fixed network


GSM routers and gateways connect the GSM network to digital or analog fixed networks or to Voice-over-IP (VoIP) lines. They make flexible and low-cost communication possible in regions with poor infrastructure where phone lines are lacking. What’s more, GSM gateways also permit subscribers to make the best use of the various tariffs offered by mobile network operators thanks to intelligent SIM management. In addition to this, direct connections between the networks enable connection costs to be cut dramatically. The demand for GSM routers is growing rapidly, particularly in emerging markets.

Using Gemalto’s GSM technology in gateways and routers has various customer benefits:

SIM management — The GSM gateway automatically uses the SIM card with the cheapest rates for calls, and helps you keep your costs down as a result.

Wireless local loop - GSM technology bridges the last mile for analog and digital phone, fax, and Internet lines if you run a mobile office.

Least cost routing - High connection costs for fixed-to-mobile calls can be reduced through direct connections between the networks by switching to mobile-to-mobile calls.

Payphone - GSM technology allows practical commercial telephony without you having to use the fixed network.

Gemalto’s GSM modules feature a first-class voice function and high EDGE or UMTS transmission rates.
