SmartCIC Delivers Fixed Wireless Access for Over 400 Petrol Stations in 10 Days or Less
SmartCIC, a global managed service provider, has provided fixed wireless and fixed line connectivity for a multinational oil and gas company across 700 petrol stations in Poland and Germany. 400 sites were connected using a fixed wireless access (FWA) solution as the primary connectivity option with the remaining sites using FWA as a back-up solution. SmartCIC provided on-the-ground engineers, hardware and networking with a total delivery time of 10 days or less.
The oil and gas company needed to install fixed line services throughout local markets in challenging locations as well as increase uptime for their critical retail applications such as Point of Sale (POS) devices, payments and enterprise resource management (ERP) platforms. SmartCIC tailored the solution to each site to provide the best networking option for each location. It used local cellular intelligence to assess network performance and the radio frequency environment, then recommended services that would deliver the best possible experience and uptime for users.
“SmartCIC is enabling disruptive retail experiences with new agility and intelligence. We are enabling retailers to rapidly transform their operations while giving them the freedom to pop-up and deliver new experiences wherever they see an opportunity. Networking should be an enabler rather than a barrier to serving customers,” said Toby Forman, CEO at SmartCIC. “We have an intelligence-driven model that has enabled us to make precise decisions about connectivity and accelerate network rollouts. For our oil and gas customer, we didn’t just connect 700 sites. We gave them a flexible foundation for delivering new digital services that increase efficiency and profitability.”
