CellClear today announced that it has signed a three-year exclusive deal with Salford Royal Hospitals to install an Enterprise GSM Gateway handling outbound mobile calls. The CellClear service is expected to reduce the cost of the Salford Royal Hospitals landline to mobile telephone calls by up to 50%.

The CellClear solution provides dramatic cost savings for large organisations wishing to reduce the cost of its monthly telephone bill. The solution utilises a blend of technologies to convert landline-to-mobile calls into mobile-to-mobile calls – reducing call costs without impairing call quality.

A spokesperson for Salford Royal Hospitals NHS Trust said: “We are looking forward to a significant reduction in our bill for outbound mobile calls and we will be monitoring this closely over the coming months.”

Paul Liesching of CellClear added: “At CellClear, we believe that telecommunication operators have been overcharging customers for landline to mobile calls for many years. By using the CellClear solution, institutions such as Salford Royal Hospitals can significantly reduce the cost of their phone bills and free up essential funding for more important areas.”

How it works
Today, mobile network operators fix the cost of interconnect charges between each other and fixed line operators – this impacts on the cost of landline to mobile calls because it is a fixed charge levied by the mobile network operators on any call originating on a landline which is terminated on a mobile phone.

While there has been a reduction in the cost of landline calls over the past year, the proportion of landline to mobile calls continues to rocket and the tariffs that apply in passing landline calls across to the mobile networks have provided telecommunications companies with a sizeable revenue stream.

CellClear has developed a solution to reduce the cost of this process. It uses an Enterprise GSM Gateway connected directly to the user organisation’s PBX. The PBX sends calls to the Gateway, which delivers the call via a SIM Card direct to the mobile network. The Gateway effectively ‘converts’ a Landline to Mobile call to a mobile to mobile phone call.
