Webinar Summary: Enable Secure Global Productivity with eSIM and LTE Advanced

Collaboration | Posted on December 18, 2017 by Arun Kirupananthan

Today’s workplaces are undergoing rapid technological change at the most fundamental level. Modern workspaces are no longer confined to desks, and employees no longer contribute only from dedicated workstations.

Your teams now use cloud-based platforms to work on projects whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. Your employees frequently work away from their desks and outside your secure Virtual Private Network (VPN). They also use their personal devices to work on-the-go every day. A poll conducted during our webinar showed that up to 25% of employees work outside of corporate Wi-Fi networks.

This means your company’s frequent travelers work on slow, unprotected public networks. This not only hinders their efficiency and productivity but also poses a serious threat to your company’s data security.

Your easiest solution is to equip your teams with LTE-enabled devices that support embedded SIM (eSIM), like the new Microsoft Surface Pro with LTE Advanced. In our recent webinar, we show you how these new technologies will allow your teams to stay productive in any country on a secure high-speed connection.

Watch our exclusive webinar below:

Catapult Anytime, Anywhere Productivity 

With LTE Advanced, your teams will always stay connected everywhere in the world. They will enjoy their own private, secure Internet connection with download speeds of up to 450 Mbps. This will help them maintain a fast-paced workflow no matter where they are.

As a result, your team’s productivity will skyrocket on a global scale. They will never again have to search for public Wi-Fi connections in order to contribute. They will also never be interrupted by slow Internet speeds and spotty connections.

Your data’s security will also never be at risk. LTE Advanced will therefore singlehandedly modernize your entire workplace. It will provide worldwide mobility to your workers and will allow them to contribute securely to your business from outside the office.

Simplify IT Management with eSIM

eSIM technology is the latest breakthrough in SIM card connectivity. It integrates the LTE chip permanently into devices, with the eSIM being compliant or rewritable by operators around the world.

This will allow your IT team to switch carriers instantly with just a phone call. Your employees will also never have to change SIM cards during travel, thus simplifying device usage and increasing user productivity.

Best-In-Class LTE Device

The best LTE-enabled device that you can provide to your workers right now is the Surface Pro with LTE Advanced. A poll conducted during our webinar showed that a high majority of participants were interested in learning about this new device.

The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced has been custom-built by Microsoft to provide the best possible LTE experience. It features an all-new Microsoft-designed Cat 9 modem that can connect to 20 different LTE networks around the world. It also has seven invisible antennas that ensure that you always receive great signal strength, even in remote locations.

The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is also backwards and forwards compatible. This means it will automatically connect to a 3G network in the absence of 4G LTE. It is also 5G compatible for super-fast LTE connectivity.

Simplify Access via eSIM

The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is equipped with both an eSIM and a removable SIM tray. Its eSIM is installed directly on the system board. Your IT team can configure this device to connect to your preferred Internet provider with a single click. You can connect this device across multiple carriers without ever switching the SIM.

This device also features a removable SIM tray so you can insert your carrier’s SIM if they don’t support eSIM. It gives you complete freedom and control and will help you simplify employee access to high-speed Internet around the globe.

The Best of Microsoft 

The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced offers the best of Microsoft. It runs Windows 10 Professional and gives you access to a variety of professional-grade software and applications. This includes all of the Office applications you know and love.

It also gives you the speed of access with instant-on technology. This means the device only takes about 15 seconds to boot up and log you in, significantly reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

It simplifies management practices and protects company data with the latest Windows 10 features. This includes enterprise-grade security and Windows Hello, Microsoft’s dedicated facial recognition software. The device also runs advanced 3D creation tools with ease and allows you to stay productive all day with a long-lasting battery.

The Microsoft Surface family offers you meticulously crafted, powerful devices custom-built for a variety of job roles.
