“In today’s hybrid work environment business users clearly need a native phone experience for business communications and ideally one phone to carry around, and Tango Networks is positioned to be a leading force in this category."

Mobile Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global wireless and mobile market, today announced that business-class mobile communications solutions provider, Tango Networks, has been selected as winner of the “Unified Communications Solution of the Year” award in the fifth annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards program.

The 2021 Mobile Breakthrough Award recognizes Tango’s breakthrough Mobile-X Extend, which the company promotes as the industry’s first SIM designed to make BYOD for business simple and easy.

The service utilizes next-generation fixed-mobile convergence technologies to enable companies to bring Mobile Unified Communications (UC) to their employees working remotely, in the office, or anywhere they happen to be.

With Mobile-X Extend, Tango Networks has married the dual SIM device evolution with its universal UC integration service to provide a breakthrough for business users: The ability to use one device for business communications in any location.

The sole requirement is for a Tango Mobile-X physical SIM or eSIM to be installed in the spare slot of a user’s personal mobile device, giving a powerful BYOD business experience. No apps, special clients or configurations are required.

With Mobile-X Extend, the employer has full control over business communications with the Tango Mobile-X physical SIM or eSIM. This gives employers direct, completely secure control over a personal phone’s second SIM while also having the ability to integrate that SIM into the company’s UC platform, making the mobile phone functionally identical to a desk phone business line. All business SIM communications can be automatically captured, recorded, monitored and analyzed for security compliance, regulatory compliance, or customer service quality.

“We’re still seeing many employees carrying two phone devices - for work and personal use – especially now with the growing remote and hybrid workforce. For others, a VoIP App connects to the company UC platform so they can use a business number rather than their personal number. However, researchers report that less than 6% of employees use their company-mandated apps so the bulk of business mobile calls are still taking place on personal phones,” said Douglas J. Bartek, CEO of Tango Networks. “Our second SIM brings huge efficiencies for the business world’s mushrooming work-from-anywhere models as it provides easy and secure business-quality communications from home, office, train, airport, car or even the coffee shop. Thank you to Mobile Breakthrough for recognizing our commitment to this as we aim to let users easily make choices about which SIM to use for which service while keeping their business and personal identities separate.”

The mission of the annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of mobile and wireless technology categories, including Cloud Computing, Mobile Management, Wireless and Broadband, Mobile Analytics, IoT and Smart City and many more. All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the wireless industry.

“Mobile devices have gone through a quiet evolution over the last 5 years. Most now support more than one SIM card and also support eSIMs, which make adding a mobile subscription for a device extremely easy and fast,” said James Johnson, managing director, Mobile Breakthrough. “In today’s hybrid work environment business users clearly need a native phone experience for business communications and ideally one phone to carry around, and Tango Networks is positioned to be a leading force in this category. Congratulations to the entire Tango Networks team being our choice for ‘Unified Communications Solution of the Year.’”

Additionally, with Mobile-X Extend, personal communications remain private and secure at all times. A users’ calls and texts made from the Business SIM bear the business identity, while calls and texts made from their Personal SIM remain private, with their personal identity. In this way, no activities on the Personal SIM compromise Business SIM security or control.

This second SIM enabled by Mobile-X Extend allows a company to eliminate landlines and the huge expense of buying and managing company-paid mobile phones. Companies that pay directly for the Business SIM service cut administrative overhead. There is also no need for expensive training or troubleshooting.
