GSM Gateways or 3G gateways are a Fixed Wireless terminal that accepts a SIM card and allows you to make calls from your Phone System using a mobile network. Put simply a GSM Gateway is mobile phone device that is connected to your PABX Phone system which allows you to take advantage of better call rates that are available from Mobile Phone carriers resulting in cheaper phone bills for you.
Prices do not include installation and are current to 1 Feb 2016. Lots of other configurations available including SMS gateways.
Calls to mobile phones are usually the most expensive component of your landline phone bill. With call rates of 30c a minute or more, it doesn’t take long to run up massive phone bills. You will also know that when it comes to calling out to a mobile phone, many mobile carriers have much better deals than the fixed wire carriers. Using a Mobile phone plan you can take advantage of much cheaper Mobile to Mobile call rates and fleet call plans to reduce your phone bill dramatically.
Because many of your outbound calls will route via the 3G Gateway, you may be able to save even more by reducing the number of landlines you have connected!
You need to have a PABX phone system with at least one free analogue port. You then need to have an active SIM card on the desired mobile phone plan. Your PABX Maintainer will install the Gateway for you and program your PABX system so that you can nominate which lines will route via the GSM Gateway.
3G gateways can have other functionality depending on the model including VoIP services, ISDN 102030 PRI, ISDN 2 BRI and there are dedicated SMS gateways also. Depending on the model purchased and the allowable service on your mobile plan, you may also be able to transmit and receive fax & data, VoIPp or SMS via the 3G gateway.
Costs will vary depending on the number of channels (lines) that you require and the features of the gateway.
Units are available in increments of 1, 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 right up to 32 Channel (32 SIM cards) that are able to be connected to Primary Rate ISDN 10/20/30 PABX Systems.
