Cellhire Announces Worldwide Connectivity Solution

News Image
Cellhire has announced a dedicated worldwide connectivity solution, tailored to the special needs of media and broadcast companies, which range from news organisations to sports broadcasters and live entertainment shows.

The offering bridges the connectivity gap between media businesses and their audiences, particularly in remote and temporary locations where fixed connectivity often lacks the required resilience.

The result is more reliable, seamless mobile connectivity for live event reporting and broadcasting which was previously impossible or difficult to achieve.

Matt Bennett, Managing Director, Cellhire, said: "The solution is based on our recent agreement with Orange France, which has opened up hundreds of further networks for Cellhire. It will enable media companies to provide a better service and expand their audience reach.

"By utilising our robust MVNO on the Orange France Network, media users, including broadcasters, can now roam across all four UK networks and, internationally, 700 networks in more than 220 global destinations."

Bennett added: "Even before launch today, Cellhire had proven itself to news media and broadcasters through the many thousands of data and voice connections it has provided for them over the years at major sporting events, from Summer and Winter Olympic Games to FIFA World Cups, Rugby World Cups and athletics competitions.

"Our track record at global sports events is why the likes of the BBC, ITV and Discovery Channel have chosen Cellhire to provide their secure global connectivity. At past events, such as the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Cellhire has provided over 20,000 connectivity solutions to a range of customers including the most prominent media and broadcasters from around the world.

"The new offering is a significant step up for Cellhire and its customers. Reliable and uninterrupted connectivity in even the most challenging locations globally will ensure high-quality real-time video and audio transmission and reporting."

Looking ahead, Bennett commented: "The 2024 Olympic Games in Paris will be a significant event for many of our media and broadcast customers, necessitating seamless and reliable mobile connectivity. Cellhire will enable them to focus on their core tasks without concerns about connectivity issues."
