Target Verticals
A year back it was realised that the telecom and infrastructure requirements of the Government sector are unique. Easy access and availability of information is of utmost importance, whether dealing with other Government bodies, consumers or businesses. At any given point of time, there are multiple projects running under various ministries with varied mobility and data requirements. To meet these diverse needs, Vodafone Business Services – Government Vertical was set up as a dedicated vertical that provides connectivity through a range of total communication solutions coupled with a robust network infrastructure. Our expertise in the field mobility along with our service-oriented approach and capabilities in the Machine to Machine and Fixed Line domains have made us a trusted brand in the enterprise sphere.

Vodafone Business Service’s Government Segment in its first year of operation as a standalone business unit has already made a mark with key state departments as the connectivity & technology partner. The initial wins and accolades were possible due to extensive existing Infrastructure of Vodafone which spans across all 23 Circles. We have been able to offer wireless, M2M and Wireline solutions to our Government customers because of our extensive fibre reach and Mobile Network coverage. We have initiated empanelment with most state level agencies and nodal bodies and have started working with them proactively on high value projects. Having understood the ecosystem Vodafone has also created a Partner network with domain experts including top management consultants and system integrators etc. As a next step we will be making investment and creating future-ready and connected States, across the country. We are in process of creating replicable solutions to facilitate G2B & G2C communication requirements of the Government.
