An innovative solution for seamless cellular & WiFi connectivity in Europe is now available!
TravelSim, Guglielmo & Trustive join forces to launch the “Full Access Europe Pass”, offering voice, SMS & mobile internet (WiFi & 3G) access in Europe. Highly competitive, this pass also enables travellers to save up to 85% on roaming costs.
The object of this agreement envisages the distribution of a combined SIM card and of a free application, Easy2Roam, for Android smartphones. The data stored on the SIM card will be used to provide immediate user authentication to both cellular and WiFi networks, thereby guaranteeing maximum speed of access, without the need to enter any password or perform any kind of manual sign up procedure.

TravelSim, Guglielmo and Trustive’s goals are aligned to offer viable alternatives to expensive 3G roaming packages through easy to use solutions aimed at business and leisure travellers alike. Every year hundreds of millions of visitors travel to Europe for business or leisure and mobile internet access using the traditional mobile phone network is proving increasingly limited due to the high international roaming fees applied to such services. What this initiative sets out to do, is offer an effective answer to what has now become an extremely widespread need.
Easy2Roam is a free application, powered by Guglielmo, with effective cloud network selection logic that includes a patented SIM-based user authentication system. This combination enables the application to automatically overcome what has always been the real limit in accessing heterogeneous and international wireless networks, a limitation that is particularly pronounced in Europe where the heterogeneity of networks is even more marked. The application also includes a “hotspot finder”, integrated with gmaps, so that the user can find the nearest WiFi network available and makes it possible to select “friendly”
“This new authentication process probably represents the most innovative development we have dealt with over the last few years, because it significantly improves user experience and connection reliability,”
Christian Vanghelder, MD at Trustive, declares: “As commuters ourselves, we look at innovation to support the need to communicate and stay in touch with our business, our family and friends. In this initiative, we have been able to integrate the best of what we found around the world with the Android Smartphone capabilities (Dual Sim or Sim unlocked), an aggressive and efficient Voice and data service from Travel Sim using international Sim card, the Sim Card authentication innovation for both 3G and WiFi developed by Guglielmo, and our WiFi footprint and integration capabilities and support. Now we can now provide a true seamless access, improve the security and best price combining offer from the three partners.”
After the launch of an initially European-focussed service, this program may be extended to Latin America to support the major events planned there over the next few years. It is hoped that this initiative will “point the way” for mobile operators to go faster in the deployment of new offers, using their existing Sim cards as the key for simplification and security.
