What are Mobile VPN ?
Mobile Virtual Private Network (MVPN) provides mobile subscribers with private network services similar to great amount of expenditure if a company largely uses mobile phones. If a MVPN is established not only the mobile phones will be efficiently use but the call charges will also be controlled. Thus, it is a good choice for big companies to set up MVPN in offices located both within the same city and between different cities. Since it is difficult to manage different telephone numbers of various departments, MVPN helps companies to allocate numbers in a most convenient way. In comparison with rented or branch exchange, MVPN realized by WIN can make full use of the public network facilities. For the telecom operators, MVPN can effectively attract subscriber groups, and rapidly increase the distribution number and call traffic since MVPN subscribers are usually business ones with frequent call.
MVPN can empower the operator with competitive advantages over its competitors.
