BlackBerry platform part of the equation
Britain’s City slickers are being targeted by the country’s biggest phone operator with a new service from today (14th October 2013), offering ultra high speeds with equally high security.
Among the features will be support for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 Regulated-level and voice recording, allowing traders to comply with Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rules that stipulate client conversations leading to agreements must be recorded to curb market abuse.
EE’s marketing chief for business Gerry McQuade described the new features as a “complete package for financial firms,” with the operator also offering double speed 4G mobile internet as part of the service.
EE’s focus on the City comes as other firms also scramble to cash in on the Square Mile’s high earners. In August it was revealed how Leeds-based firm Presence Orb was deploying “smart” pavement dustbins to track the movements of passers-by, using wireless pods to log the media access control (MAC) address of individual smartphones.
But that money-making scheme, in the capital’s Cheapside area, was subsequently dropped amid fears of data infringement.
