Connected Solutions Group Releases m106 LTE Gateway Router

RICHMOND, Va. -- Connected Solutions Group, LLC (CSG), a national leader in wireless hardware deployment and services, today announced that it is bringing its first in-house hardware product to market, the CSG m106 LTE Gateway Router. The router, designed to operate on the Verizon network, will be used for a wide range of business connectivity use cases.

"This is the next step in the evolution of CSG bringing dynamic and high-demand products into the market," stated Michael Pittman, CEO at CSG, "We have spent over a year in development making sure the device meets standards worthy of our brand. In the end, we've built something made with outstanding quality and with more features than most routers that are anywhere near the price point we will be able to offer."

Of the many features of the m106 Router, some of the key differentiators are its internal battery that will take over if external power is not available for up to eight hours; both WAN and LAN ethernet ports; IP passthrough mode; a cloud management portal with remote monitoring capabilities of the device; a pair of premium Panorama-4G/LTE Paddle antennas; inline failover capabilities; an included wall mount bracket; and a USB port that can output a charge to other devices.

A key motivation behind the device are the growing Business Internet (BI) offerings from Verizon. BI allows businesses to use the Verizon network as their primary internet service and requires a cellular connected router to facilitate the service for each customer.

"We've been a key player in BI 'Business Internet' since Verizon introduced it last year," said Pittman, "As we've put thousands of routers into the BI program, use cases have become clear to us that require features not available on some entry-level routers. The m106 feature set solves for many of the needs that Verizon is positioning BI into."

On the support side, CSG is backing up the device with included managed services and support for every Verizon BI customer who purchases the m106. "We are fully vested in every customer's success with this device," commented Pittman, "So it seemed natural to us to give six months of managed services with every sale. This support is with our own, US-based employees who will be here to hold the customer's hand through any questions they may have, assure that the device is set up properly for every unique use case, and even proactively monitor device status for the customer."

"At the end of the day, this is the CSG difference," concluded Pittman, "We're going to offer the best possible product backed by the best possible service in the industry. Our customers deserve it, Verizon customers deserve it, and, with the m106, we're going to deliver it."

Connected Solutions Group Announces 12:34 MicroTechnologies as Strategic Solutions Partner

RICHMOND, Va. -- Connected Solutions Group, LLC (CSG), a national leader in wireless hardware deployment and services, today announced that it has added 12:34 MicroTechnologies, Inc. as their latest Strategic Solutions Partner (SSP). CSG's SSP program is designed to integrate companies with specific areas of expertise with CSG's channel offerings in order to maximize the customer's experience and satisfaction.

12:34 MicroTechnologies, a Pennsylvania-based company founded in 1998, is a national leader offering sales, professional services, and managed services for Microsoft cloud services, Microsoft Office 365, and Azure. From software implementations, migrations, support, and proactive managed services, 12:34 is a full-service IT firm for Microsoft's wide-ranging products and services.

"This partnership is a huge win for our customers and Verizon customers in so many ways," said Michael Pittman, CEO at CSG, "Alejandro and his team at 12:34 are some of the most professional people we've met in the IT realm, and we've seen a huge demand for these services from Verizon teams around the country."

With Verizon selling business customers a wide range of Microsoft product licenses, Pittman saw the need for a partner who could step in to handle the complex migrations and implementations of the software.

"This was the missing puzzle piece to the offering and the feedback from the customers and Verizon reps has been tremendous," Pittman said, "The addition of 12:34's services to the sale of these Microsoft products is often the deciding factor for the customer to move forward."

Alejandro Rosado, who started 12:34 in 1998 is equally enthusiastic about teaming up with the team at CSG. "Culturally, our two companies are a great fit together," said Rosado, "As we learned more about CSG's place in the market, its relationship with Verizon, and its ability to market our services to their customers, it became incredibly obvious that this was a fantastic opportunity for all of us."

CSG has been quickly growing its SSP lineup over the past several quarters as they scale to offer more of the services needed by its constantly growing customer base. The company's goal is to fully live up to its name and offer all the connected solutions that its customers require, often through SSP partners bringing specialized expertise.

"It's another step in our constant evolution to make sure we are offering all of the products and services that Verizon business customers need," said Pittman, "We're looking forward to spreading the word about this service to our partners at Verizon. The feedback we've gotten so far has been tremendous and we know it will be a huge win for the Verizon reps who regularly have customers with this need."

Connected Solutions Group Launches Managed Services Division

RICHMOND, Va. -- Connected Solutions Group, LLC (CSG), a national leader in wireless hardware deployment and services, today announced that it has launched a full-scale managed services division. The MSP offerings, which are well over a year in the making, allow the company to offer its customers 24/7/365 support on hardware and services.

"This has been a long time coming for us," said Michael Pittman, CEO at CSG. "Our customers have been asking us for an all-encompassing support and managed services offering and we are beyond proud to be able to offer these services." CSG will offer Managed Services and Support across all its major product categories including all mobile devices, routers, MDM, and OneTalk, Verizon's exclusive VOIP service.

"We really took our time to make sure we got this right," commented James Munsey, COO at CSG. "We've spent the last 18 months building out the offerings and then building a dedicated staff behind them. We've brought on Justin Nuckols to lead the division and a team of seasoned support technicians behind him to offer every tier-level of service."

The MSP/Support offerings are based on monthly subscriptions varying in price depending on the hours of support desired (for example, subscribers can choose weekday business hours support or 24/7 support) and the type of support needed. "We built something that is scalable as a customer grows," said Munsey. "Different levels of service for different customer needs makes this extremely cost-effective for the customer. We can essentially become their outsourced IT department for these devices and services."

CSG views the MSP offering as a gamechanger to both CSG and its customers. "I cannot underscore what a big deal this is to the marketplace," said Pittman. "We are extremely proud of this product, the team behind it, and our ability now to offer true full lifecycle management of the devices and services we offer."

Pittman went on to describe the demand behind managed services. "Mobility hardware is only becoming more complex and simultaneously more prevalent in the business community and 5G is going to see the use cases and efficiencies of these devices expand exponentially. So, with all of this in mind, companies need the support to ensure that their employees can use their devices to their fullest extent and to ensure that any problems are quickly resolved."

"To us," Pittman concluded, "this is the icing on our cake and how we make sure that we are giving our customers everything they need to be successful."
