Cherry: powered by Mondial Telecom: Fast-moving disruption in the mobile industry

This is a stand in the Belgian National Pavilion, located in Zone B: Belgium National Pavillion. Stand number: B04 - day 2

Cherry is the mobile brand of service provider Mondial Telecom which cuts mobile phone costs by merging WiFi and GSM networks.

Cherry has launched voice services in Belgium by using fixed-mobile converged (FMC), dual-cellular/WiFi technology. When subscribing to Cherry’s mobile service, customers receive a dual-mode mobile handset that operates over WiFi within its coverage zone and switches seamlessly to GSM technology when leaving it. As a ‘mobile virtual network operator’, Cherry does not have its own licensed frequency allocation of the radio spectrum. This exhibit will demonstrate how Cherry enables you to use mobile, WiFi and all internet protocol networks seamlessly, shift during a call from one network to another, have one single identifier (your mobile number) on all networks, and make and take calls using your mobile number without any subscriber identity module (SIM) card.
