Mobile World Congress will bring more than 100,000 professionals from every corner of the globe to Barcelona, with discussions, keynotes and launches shaping the year ahead for the telecoms industry.
Our world is digitalising at pace and virtual experiences are quickly replacing the physical, so shows like MWC provide a rare and valuable opportunity to network and communicate in person. BICS’ direction for 2018 and beyond perfectly aligns with this global ethos: while MWC fosters connections between customers, clients and peers, BICS’ network and expertise brings connectivity to the world.
At MWC, the buzzing halls of the Fira will be lined with everything from bots, batteries and backhaul solutions to data compression, devices and drones. Visitors and exhibitors are all linked by their reliance on and investment in these tools. We think the most important connector between all these elements is a robust and global carrier-grade network.
And this is where BICS steps in.
Throughout our 20-year history, we’ve continually worked to extend the reach of our global network, which now comprises 120 access points-of-presence worldwide, participation in more than 25 submarine cables, teleport with satellite system, a global IP backbone and an extended IPX community.
We have 500+ bilateral agreements with mobile operators and a direct reach to 700+ mobile networks enabling us to enable the seamless global mobility of both people and things.
What does this mean for our customers?
Global mobility. Operators can deliver voice, data, security, messaging, roaming (and more!) for mobile devices and IoT deployments; MVNOs can launch or grow international business services; companies in vertical industries can easily enter and monetise the IoT ecosystem; enterprises can connect through the cloud with customers and colleagues in any country in the world.
And for subscribers and end-users?
Seamless cross-border mobile connectivity, call-centre contact via a toll-free or low-cost local number, more collaborative working practices, and peace of mind that their data is safe and they’re being pro-actively protected from fraud.
Others may provide these things on a local or regional level, but what sets BICS apart is our global reach, partnerships, and mobile network of things. Our customers can diversify, grow, and digitise at scale, gaining more knowledge of wide-reaching customer bases and tailoring services to deliver on a local, personal level.
Be it businesses, people, or things, BICS continues to enrich and enhance connectivity. Wherever in the world you may be travelling from, we hope to see you in Barcelona for MWC and show how we’re delivering on this global goal.
