BSNL and Be-Bound sign partnership to bring Seamless Data Connectivity to India
A force multiplier for Professional & Government Apps in urban & rural areas under DIGITAL INDIA initiative
New Delhi, India, January 22nd — BSNL, the Indian state-owned telecommunications company, has signed an agreement with Be-Bound, the French mobile network optimization company that has developed a technology which keeps Android apps connected even when there’s no internet or when there is congested data connectivity; to launch Seamless Connectivity Services (SCS), in the presence of Ms Claire Thuaudet, Deputy Head of Mission at the Residence of France.
Seamless Connectivity Services will improve in-app customer experience by guaranteeing constant connectivity anywhere there is a mobile phone network, even without Internet. Professional Android apps will immediately gain increased coverage, resulting in a wider Indian audience. The new mobile service will positively impact business growth across the country, and directly benefit the Indian population. In case of congested networks, especially in urban areas, it ensures better data throughput by using high end compression technology. The data of customer is secured using highly secure encryption algorithms. To enable this feature Android app providers must integrate with Be-Bound powered SDK into their existing apps.
With the integration of this technology, companies will be able to develop Android apps that work reliably anywhere from remote areas with no Internet connection, to the urban areas with saturated and congested data connectivity.
Benefiting from BSNL’s large network and mobile coverage, the partnership foretells the creation of apps ranging from mobile payments, transports and logistics, KYC, and energy, for improved connected services in rural as well as urban areas. Populations across the country will benefit from the better connectivity enabled by these advanced technologies.
