Blue Wireless has announced a significant development for its global business with the release of a new high-speed 5G portfolio and an expansion into the Americas region.

Beginning in 2015 in Singapore, Blue Wireless is a new generation wireless network service provider serving global enterprises with 4G/5G based wireless solutions.

Before today's announcement, the company had previously only expanded in the Europe and Asia Pacific regions; now, Blue Wireless has added the United States, Canada and Mexico to the list of countries it serves, bringing the total to 61.

“We see a clear acceleration in the adoption of Wireless WAN, especially amongst business in retail segments and those with many branches, where remote site connectivity is essential,” says Blue Wireless chief executive officer Ivan Landen.

“With this expansion, we continue our lead in the industry, offering a more flexible cost-effective alternative to wired lines.

Blue Wireless supports global businesses with Wireless WAN solutions for branches, retail outlets and remote sites offering more flexibility and lower operating cost compared with wired internet access.

The service offers multiple LTE/5G networks per country, with clear Service Levels (SLAs) for delivery, speed and uptime.

The company also enables High-Speed Gigabit LTE across all countries, allowing primary WAN connectivity for branches, as well as native 5G in Australia, Netherlands and United Kingdom with professional installation services ensuring maximum performance and reliability.

Blue Wireless' global service model, where Cradlepoint equipment, local data, field service and management is combined, ensures a consistent service is achieved across all countries.

“We're proud to deliver the first real working 5G WAN service, where we combine the technology from Cradlepoint with our expertise of local networks and field services,” says Blue Wireless chief information officer Joop Gerlach.

“Where others talk about it, we implement it, allowing businesses to replace slow broadband lines and offering an alternative for expensive dedicated access lines.

The company's new Americas portfolio is set to grow in the future, with more countries in Latin America to follow ‘in coming months'.

The news follows a similar in December 2019, in which Blue Wireless expanded its Asia Pacific 4G/LTE enterprise data plan to include 18 additional countries across the region, offering low-cost, high-speed data for IoT and business applications.

“Enterprises today have an ever-increasing number of 4G devices in their operations, from tablets and phones to trackers and routers, but struggle with the individual roaming plans from mobile operators, traditionally designed for travellers,” said Landen last year.

“This is where we can offer a simplified solution and significant cost reduction, by offering a single data plan across 18 countries that is shared amongst all SIM cards, regardless of what device or location it's in.
