Wi-Fi gets a Shot in the Arm

India has been dreaming of setting up city-wide Wi-Fi networks since 2008, when the Bombay Municipal Corporation forwarded an over ambitious plan of using Wi-Fi. The Rs. 50 crore project was intended to design an intranet, which people could use to communicate with one another. The municipality wanted the network up and running within six months. Bangalore, Nagpur and Pune are some other cities vying for Wi-Fi enabled city status.

Girish Mehta, CMO Telemedia Services, Bharti Airtel, commented, “Huge investment is required to completely unwire a city. In the past, efforts were made, that too only in select commercial or residential pockets.” He added that inhibiting factors included low customer patronage and high usage charges.

A Reliance spokesperson said, “For any network rollout there is a certain viability check that needs to be done. India has been going through a phase of technology conflict on the success potential of wireless technology for data access. No rollouts can happen without tech alignment. There has to be a balance between the avenue structure and revenues. Now that the auction for 3G is over, operators will be in a better position to design their strategies” Read More….

IVR: Helping Companies to Connect with Customers

Thanks to the growing acceptance towards voice driven technologies, IVRS is now an integral part of customer care support. IVRS is the key to reduce the operational expenditure and enhance the customer experience by taking off the call burden from agents. Spectranet’s IVR solution is a multi-dimensional system which cuts down on call times, increases productivity and streamlines the operations. The call centers or customer care department of the companies dealing largely in information retrieval of any kind such as flight information, pricing updates, password or pin generation and transaction processing can make the most of it.

An IVR system is extremely user-friendly. Able to integrate seamlessly with T1, ISDN, E1 or analog lines, it simultaneously saves time and increase efficiency of a call center. Cutting down the wait times for customers, it enhances the productivity and performance levels of customer care executives. Remote monitoring and intelligent routing between different applications is also possible. To utilize this technology to its utmost potential, the IVR system and script allows an ideal combination of quick automated messages and human involvement. The inflexible push towards automation neither drives the customer satisfaction nor revenues to the home. Implementation of poorly designed IVR can spell disaster for any company and instead of reducing the calls would result in outnumbered calls in a call center.

Thankfully, the IVR of Spectranet works as a complete communication channel between company and customers. It strikes a perfect balance between automation and self service commands. Capable to reduce the OPEX and cut back the time consumption in a calling process, Spectranet’s IVRS is customer friendly and rich in usability.

Spectranet’s Wireless Broadband: the Instant and Better Solution for Social Media Users over DSL

Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube. The opportunities and offerings of sharing your world and lives with other socially active users are immense but stops to a screech when your DSL Internet connection ditches you. When it comes to upload a photo of a recent get together with your friend, the entire thing takes what it seems to like eons. The machine hangs up and you often lose the data as you need to reboot.

To be honest, the truth is there is nothing wrong with DSL. It is in fact, one of the most liked options for connectivity. It is the inherent limitation of DSL that restricts the uploading speed. Downloading speed is higher than uploading times in DSL. The standard G.lite ADSL connection has 1.5 Mbit/s downloading speed when compared to uploading speed of 0.5 Mbit/s.  In these times of Web 2.0, you sure would not like to lag behind on the connectivity or choose wires which are, well, passé.

If you want to end the struggle of lower uploading speed, poor customer services and the installation waiting times, then Spectranet’s wireless broadband connections are for you.  To understand the benefits of a wireless broadband, you need to understand the pain points of a DSL service.

1) DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) which can be recognized as the phone line connection is good only when you are in close proximity to the central office of the provider.  The farther you are: the poorer reception you receive.

2) DSL connection is good to receive rather than sending data and information over the Internet.

So, as a heavy social media user it is up to you to decide and whom to switch to. Obviously, you would not like to be more often at the receiving end.  Free your life from the mediocrity of DSL services and get wireless broadband connection right away. Proffering symmetrical bandwidth (the same uploading and downloading speed) and bringing the true sense of connectivity-on-the-go, the wireless broadband of Spectranet is designed to meet the next level connectivity demands.

Whether you are a Social Media Marketer utilizing the tools for building network or a student simply checking in to play online games and watch videos, choose from the wide array of packages.  Get a single and dedicated wireless connection that is speedy enough to match your pace. The installation is super quick.  Place an order, give us the time of two days and you are all set to rock on. Surf the Internet on WiFi phones. Furthermore, the Internet reliability and performance of Spectranet’s wireless broadband is clubbed with superior offers.

Accessing Internet – Changing trends in the industry

For the past few years, the Govt. of India is focusing on increasing the Broadband penetration across country. The performance so far has been not up to the expectation. The spotlight of data industry has been on the number of broadband subscribers and their growth. However, there is another interesting story brewing beneath the surface which is changing the dynamics of the industry. A revolutionary change in usage pattern of internet and the medium to access internet is underway – fueled by both hardware and services offerings.

On the hardware front, the laptop market in India is growing at over 100% per annum and Wi-Fi enabled phones are now available for as less as Rs.4,000. Tablet computers – promising convergence of smart phones and laptops – are also making a significant mark with over 10 manufacturers launching tablet computers in the last 1 year in India. The ubiquitous availability of devices to access internet has created immense pressure on Service providers as the customers today are demanding increasing mobility and universal availability of services. With voice becoming a commodity due to severe competition and dwindling rates, service providers are now focusing on catering to the data needs of customers. The steep premium paid by service providers at recent auction of 3G and BWA licenses is an indication of industry pinning its hope on the increasing demand of mobile data services.

Wi-Fi is one of the many service delivery platforms competing to cater to the segment of mobile internet users. Of late, Wi-Fi as a technology is increasingly gaining momentum in India. Wi-Fi provides localized mobile internet services which can be accessed by users across a variety of platforms such a phones, tablet and laptop.

Though Wi-Fi provides higher speed compared to other current mobile data services, an often quoted limitation of Wi-Fi is its restricted coverage capability. However, analysis of bandwidth consumption pattern of customers reveals that most of the data consumption happens inside premises – be it in homes, offices or common public places such as malls, hotels or hospitals. Service providers are capitalizing on the limited areas of bandwidth consumption by making Wi-Fi Hotspots across locations such as malls, hospitals, hotels and markets – thereby creating a presence wherever the customer is likely to use data services. To complete the mobility aspect of the offering, service providers are offering free roaming services to their residential customers, enabling users to browse internet at their favourite destination using the same credentials that the customer would use at his/her home. The lower cost of Wi-Fi technology and standard implementation across devices provides Wi-Fi a cutting edge over other mobile bandwidth platforms.

The impact of 3G rollout on the Wi-Fi service delivery platform remains to be seen. 3G is pitted as the next big thing in India Telecom industry and a competitor to Wi-Fi Hotspots as both platforms offer mobile data connectivity solution. But Mobile Operators are already looking at utilizing the Wi-Fi platform as a complementing platform to gain more economical operational costs; rather than as a competition. Reason for such opinion is not hard to find. 3G requires enormous investment in network and the coverage inside premises remains a challenge. Service providers are nowadays offering Managed Wi-Fi Service which can be integrated with both 3G and 2G networks. Using the EAP-SIM technology, data transfer by Mobile Operator’s customer can be seamlessly transferred from the 3G / GPRS to Wi-Fi Infrastructure whenever the user is in a Wi-Fi zone. The user benefits with higher speed data transfer and the Mobile Operator gains by offloading the traffic from the expensive spectrum on to comparatively cheaper Wi-Fi platform.

Thus, the Wi-Fi technology seems to be poised for an explosive growth across the country and globe. Launch of 3G services in India shall provide impetus to the trend of Wi-Fi hotspot across the country with data transfer seamlessly switching to available technology platform. All in all, the customers are in a treat with various technologies making mobile broadband a reality and the interplay in technologies providing a perfect browsing experience to customer wherever he/she desires.
