Company history

Mobius originated in 2008 out of the payment industry, and from the beginning has had security built into its DNA. A foundational pillar for Mobius was its relationship with Vodafone, who selected us as its preferred distributor for M2M Data SIMs. This exclusive partnership meant that Mobius could take product to market earlier than our competitors. Our partnership with Vodafone has helped Mobius forge a reputation as a leading supplier of M2M solutions, particularly in the local government sector. This has now expanded to a broader set of sectors and other global operators.

Our partners

Mobius enjoys close relationships with leading providers, both in the UK and globally, which means we offer unparalleled services to our clients. We have secured solid agreements under both MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) and roaming models. Unlike most providers of global connectivity, we facilitate permanent roaming for overseas applications. We are able to dynamically switch between networks to optimise signal strength and pricing using advanced technology.

In the UK, we have direct wholesale agreements with EE, Three UK, and Vodafone. We achieve truly global coverage through our direct agreements with KPN, Telenor and Vodafone Global.

Three Wholesale powers Mobius’ services for NFC and contactless payment terminals, which is used to process customers’ orders and transactions. Three also provides for Mobius back-up fixed-line data connections during outages. Our integrated infrastructure means we can provide exceptional call control and deliver data in real time.

We have developed trusted partnerships with systems integrators and our relationships with trade bodies demonstrate our industry credibility.
