Topology

 

The Issue

When  your business grows; IT, communication and data transmitting  costs  often  expand also just to keep pace. Turkey’s A101 discount  markets had just this  issue as they grew from their  founding in 2008 to over 7.000 stores served  by 35 distribution centers today. They had some operational and cost problems with their existing xDSL system:       

  •Expensive subscription cost for xDSL,satellite or Ethernet circuits    

  •Too often cut-off and long recovery time    

  •Reducing OPEX costs to transfer the savings  for growth to compete      

  •Reducing costs for field installation, operation and maintenance    

  •Reducing costs of an expensive  IP telephony infrastructure and license fees    

  •Eliminating the installation timeline for a new circuit which effects the grand opening     

The growth of 4G and availability of data-bandwidth capacity of the cellular networks, creates new potentials to use new cashier and POS devices, became a significant opportunity for IT managers, as the mobile data costs are decreasing. By creating best practices to alter usage patterns, enterprises with high xDSL,satellite or other land line circuits costs can reduce their bills by implementing the Ricon Mobile Router System with partnership of a Mobile Service Provider.     

One of A101’s business objectives was to: reduce cost of communication and replace the existing xDSL  infrastructure with a solution which operates more efficiently. 


The Solution 

RICON Mobile set up its own manufactured S9920V-LTE routers in more than 7.000 stores and implemented a RMS RICON Management System for the management of the new topology.    

As a result of the deployment;    

•Ricon Mobile S9920V-LTE routers have been set up in all stores with 2 SIM cards (1 x Data / 1 x Voice). All routers are registered to the Ricon Central Management Platform via the park APN with standard configuration and request the specific configuration for the related store by sending their serial numbers which are tied by the stores automatically. (Zero Touch Installation Function without using any  field or remote installation support)    

•Instant store openning without waiting delivery of a land line delivery term.    

•A101 eliminated the complex and expensive IP Telephony system and switched to GSM Voice Technology with regular and cheap non-IP Phones having perfect cellular voice quality.    

•One Brand, one router, one management, also support extensive number of SNMP OIDs.

RICON Mobile devices and its platform implementation enhanced the whole A101 data networking and voice infrastructure.

DYO Boya Inc.

Company Description

DYO Boya Inc., the first coating factory in Turkey, was established in İzmir-Bornova in 1954 which has been reputed as a “pioneer of innovations” since then.    

DYO Boya Inc., manufactures furniture coatings and varnishes, industrial coatings, automotive repair coatings, marine coatings, polyester coatings, and alkyd resins. Occupying 67,000 m² of grounds, Dyo Boya’s Çiğli plant is the biggest in the Turkish coatings manufacturing industry.    

Rapidly growing since its foundation, DYO Boya Inc. has become an international company that is active not only in Turkey, but also in Romania, Russia and Egypt with its production and sale operations.     

DYO Boya Inc. is the Turkey’s pioneer at color mixing machines at points-of-sale concept. With the colour mixing system, paint retailers can make coating at any moment for the desired colour.The production of thousands of colours at sale points has been made possible via the colouring system titled as “Renk Pınarı” (Spring of Colours). 

In order to strengthen the technological infrastructure, gain competitive advantage and achieve its targets, DYO Boya Inc. decided to replace its xDSL to 3G mobile infrastructure by using the RICON Mobile routers.      


Topology

 

The Issue

Not only in Turkey but also in the whole world, there is a tendency in the coatings industry towards "zero color paint production but all coloring will be done at the sales points". Therefore, using a Paint Coloring System is accepted as a dominant business model universally.     

The usage of color mixing machines by retailers is becoming increasingly widespread. Therefore, where the system can not be observed vividly in terms of malfunction, maintenance and operation, the coating companies may lose their advantage against competitors and they may not get the benefits that they expect from their color mixing machine investment at the dealer’s store.    

Generally, updating the paint codes and the prices on the color mixing machines are done manually, usually by on-site service by coating companies. This situation is very costly in terms of human resources and time used. On the other hand, this can not respond timely to the demands of customers and can turn into a situation of losing market and customers.    

DYO Boya Inc. grows every year by adding new dealers to its capacity. Therefore, IT, communication and data transmitting  costs  often  expand also just to keep pace. DYO Boya Inc. had this  issue.  They had some operational and cost problems with their existing xDSL system:           

•Expensive subscription cost for xDSL,satellite or Ethernet circuits    

•Too often cut-off and long recovery time    

•Reducing OPEX costs to transfer the savings  for growth to compete          

•Reducing costs for field installation, operation and maintanance        

•Reducing costs of an expensive  IP telephony infrastructure and license fees    

•Eliminating the installation timeline for a new circuit which effects the grand opening     

The growth of 3G and availability of data-bandwidth capacity of the cellular networks, creates new potentials to use new cashier and POS devices, became a significant opportunity for IT managers, as the mobile data costs are decreasing. By creating best practices to alter usage patterns, enterprises with high xDSL,satellite or other land line circuits costs can reduce their bills by implementing the Ricon Mobile Router System with partnership of a Mobile Service Provider.     

DYO Boya Inc.’s one of the  business objectives  were to: increase the efficiency and replace the existing xDSL  infrastructure with a solution which operates more efficiently.


The Solution 

RICON Mobile set up its own manufactured S9920M-3G routers in more than 1.900 stores and implemented a RMS Ricon Management System for the management of the new topology.    

As a result of the deployment, color mixing machines can be accessed online;    

•The required paint color codes, machine settings and prices are updated instantly from the center,    

•When updating is required, the time and the cost of the need to physically dispatch staff to the field is totally abolished,        

•The frequency of usage of color mixing machines, the on/off status can be monitored live, the performance of the dealer regarding usage of the color mixing machine and keeping it in good conditions can be monitored without wasting time and necessary interventions can be done,    

•For online work, access problems (dealer’s internet interruption, password change, IP change, landline),

•Online access is only provided through a secure connection between the color mixing machines and the IT center of the DYO Boya Inc.,    

•On-line color mixing machines can also be controlled remotely    

Ricon Mobile S9922M-3G routers helped DYO Boya Inc. to send regularly all the necessarry information to the color mixing machines without any on-site service together with controlling remotely. This reduced the cost of using human resources and waste of time.  Also, this increased the quality of the services and added value to the business.

RICON Technology: solution designer and manufacturer of RMS wireless products and RMS Ricon Management System software; provides reliable and secure mobile wireless networking solutions for a wide range of lottery applications.


CHALLENGE

Milli Piyango’s previous network was based on IP ADSL with over five thousand lotto terminals distributed throughout Turkey. The efficiency of the system was not optimal, with slow transaction speeds on a network that had limited scalability. In order to overcome the above limitations the system required to be migrated to an IP network. The previous network relied on ADSL to provide remote connectivity to the network. Furthermore a large number of remote locations where lacking ADSL coverage. Therefore other complimentary technologies where required. The move to 3G wireless mobile technologies as a suitable alternative due to its wide coverage, provided reduced cost of ownership as well as simplified provisioning procedures and reduced costs. The 3G mobile wireless system needed to:

  • router to fit inside the lottery terminal cabinet,

  • provide a safety mechanism to avoid unintentional SIM card manipulations,

  • support external magnetic antennas for routers,

  • guarantee security and privacy in all the transactions,

  • provide remote management software and custom scripting.


EQUIPMENT USED

  • up to 21Mbps downlink speed,

  • dual SIM capabilities,

  • Ethernet 10/100, USB (optional),

  • RS-232 transparent communication,

  • external antenna,

  • slim, sturdy design,

  • secure and SIM protected,

  • data transmission,

  • ultra security – VPN support,

  • NAT, DMZ host, DNS proxy, DynDNS,

  • VPN, Ipsec, NTP, DHCP, imcp , etc.

  • friendly installation,

  • extremely easy to use and configure.


RESULT

RICON 3G routers are connected to the GTech lottery terminals with via a 9 pin serial port interface. The antenna used in RICON 3G wireless mobile router was able to be placed externally for optimal maximum signal strength. The routers dual SIM’s are securely protected within the router making the dual SIM cards secure from any type of mechanical tempering or manipulation. Further to this an end-to-end encrypted IPSec VPN tunnel was established between RICON’s wireless 3G router and the centralized data processing center, allowing seamless integration of remote terminals.

In brief RICON and GTECH fully accomplished the requirements set down by Milli Piyango and selected for the project 3G network carriers, to offer high quality service for the operation of Milli Piyango’s lotto terminals. Now over 5000 stand-alone lottery terminals rely on RICON 3G wireless technology. Milli Piyango keeps ordering RICON routers and GTECH terminals whenever they need to deploy 3G remote wireless terminal.

Wireless Wide Area Network Backup

RICON Mobile provides hardware (3G/4G routers) and software (RMS Ricon Management System) for wireless wide area network backup applications.

Wide area network (WAN) outages are simply a fact of life for many enterprises, whether they are caused by natural disasters or ancient and unreliable copper networks. A WAN backup plan is critical for many industries. Enterprises have traditionally used WAN backup solutions like analog lines but wireless WAN backup options like cellular 3G networks and nascent 4G networks have surpassed these older wired technologies. A wireless WAN backup is not only a lower-cost alternative but is more effective in maintaining uptime at remote sites than wired options. Enterprises also rely on 3G and 4G networks for wireless LAN backup or primary links in ATM machines, retail kiosks and digital signage solutions. Wireless WAN solutions are especially appealing in these cases because enterprises can avoid negotiating with a third-party property owner over pulling cables for backup links through shopping malls and other multitenant spaces. Finally, 3G networks and 4G networks can also serve as a quick and easy stopgap measure to get new remote sites up and running while waiting for primary WAN links to be installed and provisioned.

RICON wireless networking solution combines all most advanced wireless backup and provides secure, reliable, flexible and cost effective networking solutions for monitıring IP camers. RMS Ricon Management System, working together with RICON routers as a part of the RICON solution, monitors connectivity on the mobile network, informs about network availability, signal strengths also controlling devices remotely.
