In today’s age, if a company cannot provide remote support, the cost to drive out to site is unsustainable.
In 2005, Tecmo created a private network with MTN. This is referred to as an APN. Thus, Tecmo has its own network within MTN.
Each device receives a specific allocated sim card with an IP address. As a result, this device can be accessed as if the device was on the client network.
This gives Tecmo an enormous advantage over competitors, since Tecmo can provide remote support should a breakdown occur.
