Axtel rolls out its mobile solution platform in Mexico on JSC Ingenium’s MVNE/A Technology
- The addition of mobile solutions to its service portfolio will let Axtel launch its own mobile solutions offer for the Business and Government sectors to the market, and operate as a Mobile service platform to enable and operate different MVNOs.
Axtel has entrusted JSC Ingenium to deploy its Full Core BSS+OSS 3G and 4G technology, which will allow it to operate as an aggregating platform and manage each brand individually, while offering the highest level of operating flexibility and autonomy to all its customers.
One of the most important and innovative developments of Axtel’s platform is its ability to make calls in VoLTE. Thanks to JSC Ingenium’s VoLTE technology, Axtel integrates to the ALTÁN radio network and makes it possible to make native calls in VoLTE from a Host’s 4G network to a different Host’s 3G network.
Another notable new feature is its multi-host capability. The Axtel platform will offer mobile service on the radio networks of Telcel and Altán, the latter also being known as “La Red Compartida” (the Shared Network). This feature places Axtel in an advantageous position that will let it offer MVNOs interested in operating on its platform the leading top-quality best-value coverage on the market.
Axtel belongs to the Altán Redes consortium of companies as a passive shareholder, a company responsible for the design, launch, operation and maintenance of the Red Compartida. The consortium initiated its launch plan in 2018, with the aim of reaching over 92% coverage at a domestic level by 2023, when the whole project will conclude. The Red Compartida is an LTE 4G broadband mobile network with low latency and indoor coverage capacity.
Since 15th February 2016, Axtel has been a subsidiary of ALFA, a company which owns 52.8% of its capital. Axtel adhered in 2011 to the UN’s Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. In addition, it has belonged to BMV’s Sustainable IPC since 2013, to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index since 2017, and it has been recognised by the Mexican Centre for Philanthropy (CEMEFI) as a Sustainable Business since 2008.
Axtel’s shares, represented by Ordinary Participation Certificates (COPs), have been traded since 2005 on the Mexican Stock Exchange, with the ticker symbol “AXTELCPO”.
