Vodafone India has strengthened its enterprise services portfolio, offering Wi-Fi services to small, medium and large enterprises, as it targets corporates at a time its retail business is under serious competitive pressure triggered by the entry of Reliance Jio Infocomm.
Called the Vodafone SuperWi-Fi, it will be the first time an enterprise Wi-Fi Network is being provided as a service by an Indian telecom operator, Vodafone Business Services said in a statement on Monday.
Vodafone India’s enterprise solution is the business that the telecom major is laying its bets on.
From tying up with microfinance firms, startups and even trying to work with state governments on elections, the vertical is growing at twice the rate of the industry, the company said.
Vodafone Business Services, the enterprise arm of Vodafone, provides telecommunications services across both mobility and fixed line platforms. It accounted for 16.4% of Vodafone India revenues in the second half of FY17. As of March 31, 2016, it had 7.5 million mobility corporate customers on board.
SuperWi-Fi will offer unified, high-speed and wireless network access to employees, guests and customers across their sites and locations with 24×7 remote monitoring and management. It will provide secure wireless connectivity to improve user experience and ensure greater flexibility and mobility among employees and guests alike, said the company statement.
