Blue Wireless joins Connectbase for easier global wireless connectivity
Mon, 11th Dec 2023

Blue Wireless, a leading global provider of fixed wireless connectivity for enterprises, has joined the Connectbase platform to provide instant pricing and availability information for its worldwide services. The move makes Blue Wireless the latest member of The Connected World platform and offers users the ability to access wireless connectivity services in 89 countries.

Edison Smith, VP of Sales for EMEA at Connectbase, heralded this important partnership. He stated, "We are excited to welcome Blue Wireless to the Connectbase ecosystem, a partnership that underscores our mission to catalog the world’s networks with location-based insights [...] With on-demand pricing and availability in over 80 countries for wireless WAN connectivity, Blue Wireless offers a unique advantage to customers in our ecosystem."

The partnership augments the resilience of corporate networks built within The Connected World platform by reducing the chance of simultaneous outages in both wired and wireless networks. Not only enhancing network continuity, fixed wireless connectivity provides other benefits including faster delivery times, flexible deployment, and availability in remote locations where wired connections aren't available.

Ivan Landen, CEO of Blue Wireless, voiced his pride at becoming the first provider of this type on a truly global scale in the Connectbase ecosystem. Landen stated, "Our global connectivity services give platform members instant pricing and local availability information in over 80 countries globally. The Connected World platform gives us one tool to connect with buyers eliminating a great deal of inefficiency in quoting and ordering.”

Blue Wireless's new quoting portal also introduces a unique innovation – it provides location-specific availability information for wireless services. Describing this feature, Landen noted, "Deployment of Fixed Wireless service is often frustrated by not knowing the expected internet access speeds available at a specific location, making accurate network design difficult. Our new availability algorithm leverages actual wireless performance information to give customers not only a firm price but also a specific orderable speed, which is guaranteed by Blue Wireless for delivery."

The company's connectivity information has immediate availability for all existing Connectbase partners via The Connected World platform. Furthermore, Blue Wireless has set to open access via its newly launched quoting portal from 1 January 2024.
