Business: MWEB Business APN Offers Controlled Access for Remote Users
Recent Gauteng Business News
Herman Jansen van Rensburg, Head of Product Management and Development at MWEB Business says that often a company needs to facilitate some form of communication between its main office and people or devices which are based in remote locations where fixed line is not as freely available.
“An APN gives these customers or devices access into their company's network through the MWEB Business MPLS network. APNs offer the widest form of connectivity as they are available wherever there is cellular connectivity. Since it is a private APN, one of the key benefits is that Internet access per SIM card can be controlled through a dedicated firewall or Managed Internet Gateway (MIG) in MWEB’s data centre. This prevents unauthorised usage of bandwidth and means that companies can monitor the individual usage of bandwidth by their remote users.”
MWEB Business offers APN data bundles in 5, 10 or 20GB, which can be shared between the users that have SIM cards configured on the APN. Should additional data be required during the month, customers are billed out-of-bundle rates for usage over and above their data cap. MWEB Business offers 24-month contracts as well as set up and installation of the APN
Jansen van Rensburg concludes, “The MWEB Online APN Management Interface allows customers to view graphs, itemised billing information and receive usage notifications at 50, 80 and 100 percent of the bundle, to ensure full control and management of the APN.
For businesses operating from multiple locations, or that have mobile/home office users – an increasingly popular trend - seamless cost-effective inter-company communication becomes essential to maintaining business competitiveness and operational efficiency and this can be easily achieved using an APN.
