LoRo operates more than 2,600 customer shops and Point of Sale (PoS) terminals throughout the six cantons of French-speaking Switzerland. LoRo needed a quick and agile way to spin up shops and change content. The move from a fixed line connection to wireless broadband to facilitate the lottery and gaming applications using LTE technology would help achieve that goal.
LoRo required a wireless connection that provides a high level of security and reliability to enable lottery applications. The dynamic changes in vending and kiosk locations require fast installation time for a secure data link.
The Digi TransPort WR21
based on LTE technology allows organizations like LoRo to activate new locations instantaneously over a wireless connection, which is required to support changing customer behavior and the launch of new applications.
The WR21 routers were pre-configured to LoRo’s specific specifications. In less than a few weeks, it secured a mass deployment of more than 1,000 WR21 units to lottery game locations throughout the six cantons of French-speaking Switzerland.
By utilizing a cellular connection via the WR21, LoRo can now roll-out and update new points of sale instantaneously.
In the past, with the fixed line connection, deployment would take weeks because of the need for a complex cable infrastructure.
Today, LoRo can create and deploy new applications to terminals to maintain revenue and customer engagement. Installation costs have been minimized, because a complex infrastructure is no longer required.
Société de la Loterie de la Suisse Romande (LoRo) organizes and operates lottery games and sports betting in the six cantons of French-speaking Switzerland. It distributes all of its profits to non-profit associations active in a broad spectrum of fields, such as social welfare, culture, sport, education and the environment.
