    • VoIP make up an estimated 16% of international voice traffic in 2005 and is forecasted to grow to 75% in 2007. (Source: Telegeography, Frost & Sullivan)
    • A natural progression in communication with the advent of the Internet and growth in broadband usage.
    • Surprisingly, unlike the Internet, major growth for VoIP are coming from developing countries. For example, the top three countries for VoIP growth in 2004 were Brazil , Nigeria and Bangladesh. This is because VoIP can be made available to non-Internet users such as cell phone users.

    • No sensitive information that is encrypted is stored on third-party servers.
    • Ensures only intended recipient can read message
    • Applications include SMS Banking, SMS Transact, SMS Billing, SMS Payments/Ticketing

  • Why Bond Wireless SMS Banking Solution?
    • Patented proprietary technology
    • Secure (possible for bank to self-host security server)
    • Scalable (RDBMS, encryption engines, etc.)
    • Extensible (e.g., add IVR, text-to-speech capabilities, etc.)
    • Telco/handset independence
    • Proven expertise- Microsoft Gold/Sun iForce certified
    • Cost effective (hard-/software platform agnostic, integrates to legacy systems readily)
    • Cost effective administration (low admin overhead & end user support cost)
    • Possible deployment as micro-transactions platform
    © Bond Wireless 2007 All Rights Reserved
  • Notes on SMS Banking with IVR Verification
    • Once a request for transaction request is initiated, as security measure, there will be an automatic timed logout if user does not respond within a set time.
    • The entire process can be shortened by the user by using the appropriate shortcuts and correct fields without the server prompting after Log in. For example: BI 1 <Password> FT <A/C to txf from> to <A/C to txf to> <Password>
    • Steps 6, 7 and 8 can be reduced to just IVR verification. However, the security and audit trail requirements may require the additional steps as voice calls can be forwarded without knowledge of the caller while SMS can never be forwarded with original sender’s CLI from a handset.
    • In addition, the encrypted SMS sent back to the bank provides the customer with a ‘copy’ of the transaction done, thus providing an audit trail or receipt of the transaction while IVR alone will not provide a journal of the transaction from the customer’s perspective.
