Globalgig’s Orchestra Mobile Connectivity Management platform selected as a finalist in the BSS/OSS Category

SAN ANTONIO, TX., December 1, 2020 – Globalgig announced today that it has been selected as a finalist in the 2020 Fierce Innovation Awards – Telecom Edition, a peer-reviewed awards program from Fierce Wireless and Fierce Telecom.  The competition highlights the advances in service and equipment developments unveiled during the past 12 months. Globalgig’s Orchestra platform was recognized as a finalist in the BSS/OSS category.

Orchestra is an industry-leading platform that is API-enabled, providing single-pane-of-glass management of global wireless services.  Businesses today are increasingly dependent on wireless communications for on-demand network access across geographic boundaries, diverse communications technologies, and disparate devices. However, the management of wireless services across multiple mobile network operators (MNO) can be quite complex, even within one country. Challenges include managing different SIMs from every MNO, dealing with a wide variety of data plans, accessing disparate portals for service management, invoices in multiple currencies, different customer support desk and trouble ticket processes. To simplify, enterprises have defaulted to a few operators globally, sometimes paying high roaming rates.

Orchestra enables businesses to choose the optimal network operator and price for each country while providing a single, unified platform for management, inventory and billing. Orchestra untethers businesses from restricted access, complex global multi-currency pricing plans of a few operators, giving companies the ability to select the optimal service without increasing management headaches. Orchestra supports wireless services with coverage in 200+ countries and access to over 600 wireless networks, providing multi-carrier options and pricing transparency for customers.

“We are elated to be recognized as an innovator in the BSS/OSS category for Fierce Innovation Awards,” said Ernest Cunningham, CEO of Globalgig.  “I want to thank our development team first and foremost as Orchestra was developed with the vision to simplify complexities in managing wireless as well as other network services.  It is a platform that our customers use to facilitate service management, and it is also designed for use internally to manage our global business requirements. We are excited about the many enhancements to the platform that will be announced in Q1 of 2021 to go deeper and wider into the network.”

Fierce Innovation finalists’ applications were reviewed by an exclusive panel of executives from major telecommunications companies and analysts including T-Mobile, Telia Carrier AB, Recon Analytics, iGR, Mobile Ecosystem, Mobile Experts, Inc., Senza Fili, and Futuriom.  All of the submissions were evaluated based on ease of use/ROI, effectiveness, technical innovation, competitive advantage, and financial impact.

Winners will be announced in the 2020 Innovation Report set to publish by Fierce Wireless on Thursday, December 10th.

Kevin Gray, Vice President, Fierce Wireless said, “Congratulations to the finalists of the Fierce Innovation Awards – Telecom Edition. Our program promotes the competitive spirit and initiative that spurs the design, development, and distribution of groundbreaking solutions. We applaud Globalgig on their success.”
