Faster Mobilisation 

Providing a wireless network solution for one of India’s largest private sector banks.

  • Business Need

    One of India’s largest private sector banks, with $100 billion worth of assets, 24 million customers catered to through 1,399 branches and 4,485 ATMs, had a vision - an ambitious growth target. They wanted an increase of 15% in retail money transactions. Our task was to change the wired Point of Sale (PoS) over which customers made credit / debit card purchases.   

  • The Solution

    With wired PoS, our customer’s expansion was fraught with obstacles. Some of the problems we envisaged were high operation and maintenance costs, unavailability of wired-line mediums at the locations of intended deployment of PoS terminals and static location bound deployments. Vodafone and the bank came to a consensus that a high-tech, scalable business solution was required. So, we connected the PoS terminals and the bank’s data centres over a robust and secure wireless GPRS network through an exclusive Access Point Name (APN) configured on the bank SIM. This APN was used by Enterprise GPRS/EDGE devices to access the correct Enterprise connectivity. It was then configured to allocated IP Addresses to the Enterprise group of mobile EDGE/GPRS users.           

  • Key Customer Benefits
    • The solution ensured end-to-end security for mobile GPRS users
    • This cost-effective, secure and robust solution not only revolutionised the bank’s existing PoS terminals but also led to exponential growth
    • Today the bank has an expansive network of 6,000 wireless PoS and counting
