Case Study

>   The customer: Opportunity International of Ghana

>   The issue: the bank needed to have the means to offer banking services to clients in remote locations

>   The solution:
• A mobile bank was developed that uses an ATM, teller and finger-print machine to help clients in remote locations undertake banking services
• Two vans were equipped with BGAN units that were connected to all equipment via a router that helped establish a secure end-to-end tunnel via a VPN

"We decided to adopt BGAN after carrying out extensive trials. It's the only service that allows us to reach out to ^ people in remote and less developed communities to provide fast, secure and reliable mobile banking services. "
Inmarsat-Head of Banking Operations/Opportunity.
