DataXoom provides cellular data network connectivity for the tablets, mobile hotspots, laptops, and specialty devices used by mid- and large-sized businesses, and runs on the nations’ largest LTE, CDMA and GSM networks.
Compared to purchasing directly from the mobile network operators, DataXoom offers businesses several important advantages:
- DataXoom has no contracts or termination penalties.
- DataXoom’s wholesale pricing options include pay-as-you-go plans, 2 to 10 GB plans that pool across all users, and larger terabyte (TB) plans that can be customized for specific pricing requirements.
- DXTM, DataXoom’s proprietary management platform, allows an administrator to manage users through a single web interface across multiple underlying mobile networks. It provides end user authentication, data limits, and alerts.
- DataXoom can provide affordable new or refurbished devices, or customers can select SIM-only options. DataXoom also offers tablet-and-service bundles, in which the lease cost of the device is packaged with the monthly data service. Other services, such as configuration, warranty, and repair services, can be added.
DataXoom’s service operates on three of the four largest U.S. mobile network operators, and is available nationwide.
