Using MVNO for Data Brings Major Benefits for EVV Device
October 07, 2020
Using MVNO for Data Brings Major BenefitsIngram Micro Commerce and Lifecycle Services (IMCLS) brings over 40 years of mobile device industry experience to the EVV space and is a key partner in bringing the LINK solution to market. IMCLS is helping enable a new, single-use device to enter the market as a cost-effective cellular data package from the nation’s largest Mobile Voice Network Operator (MVNO).
MVNOs allow devices to run on any network.They buy data from the wireless networks (e.g. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) and provide the best option to the end user based on their zip code. While major carriers have good coverage and towers all around the country, some are stronger in specific areas than others. Based on the zip code of use, LINK determines the best signal available and will connect with that network. The result is that device users will have access to the most reliable data available in a given location.
LINK’s cellular data plans are packaged in low-data increments for EVV applications. Instead of paying traditional data charges on personal devices, LINK is designed to lower costs because it uses less data.
IMCLS and the MVNO are already trusted providers of the Lifeline Assistance Program and deliver millions of phones to Medicaid recipients (the same population that needs EVV). This experience ensures our ability to seamlessly deploy to and serve the EVV market.
IMCLS is proud to provide LINK with easy-to-manage data from their MVNO partnership to ensure recipients and their providers never have to worry about EVV tracking again.
