Discover How Cellular Data Is Powering Some The World's Biggest Businesses
Cellular data, or mobile data as it’s most commonly known, is another type of data connection.
Unlike traditional, wired connectivity, cellular data uses a cellular carrier to transmit the data signals and ensure your mobile device is always on, even if WiFi isn’t.
In our personal lives we might use cellular data when we’re on the move or away from our homes for a variety of things. We use it to watch videos, post updates to our social media channels, facetime loved ones or browse the internet.
In our professional lives we might use it to check emails, dial into a video conference whilst on the move or send files to our clients.
However, some businesses have been using cellular in innovative ways, showcasing the true value of having a network run solely on this type of connectivity. Take Pizza Hut; the global food chain is using cellular as a back-up service across it’s sites. It ensures that, should the usual connectivity solution fail or experience downtime, the 4G backup cellular connectivity option can continue to run card payments, stock checks and keep tills working.
Associated British Ports are utilising cellular to ensure its logistics and transport system operates effectively and efficiently. It uses the innovative connectivity option to ensure total visibility of its cargo at all times meaning it can track missing goods, anticipate delays and take measures to protect any precious or delicate assets which may be in transit.
If you’re in a rural area which struggles for connectivity options suitable for your business, cellular could be a solution for you. NHS Scotland deployed cellular connectivity options across health practices in the region so that blood donor, breast screening and other vital procedures and practices could be carried our and continued effectively no matter how remote the location.
