mobile payments with MIRO and colocationThe mobile payment industry is positioned for rapid growth within the next few years as consumers increasingly use their smartphones and other devices to make payment transactions. From digital goods to mass transit, and even traditional brick and mortar stores, merchants who accept mobile payments have an opportunity to capitalize on this trend. But how can mobile payment providers achieve the level of security and efficiency that end users demand?

Consumers expect mobile transactions to take place quickly, which means mobile payment providers must ensure low latency and high availability across their networks. Bango, a UK-based mobile technology company that provides global mobile payment and analytics solutions, requires rapid payment transaction times to ensure the best end-user experience. With active connections in more than 47 countries, Bango delivers more than three billion mobile subscriber events each month. To achieve this, Bango uses Internap’s Performance IPTM and colocation services.

Managed Internet Route OptimizationTM (MIRO) – As part of Internap’s Performance IP solution, MIRO makes routing decisions based on latency, packet loss and route stability. Advanced analytics continuously adjust the routes for superior web performance optimization so the data reaches the end user based on the current optimal network path. This ensures instant, seamless mobile processing via the fastest available route.

Colocation – Internap’s Dallas data center gives Bango the ability to scale with business demands while maintaining maximum uptime and resiliency. The facility also provides colocation management, which allows customers to leverage cloud-to-colo hybridization for immediate access to elastic, on-demand resources such as managed hosting and cloud.

Merchants who offer reliable mobile payment capabilities are bringing a new level of agility and convenience to their customers. With MIRO and colocation services from Internap, Bango gives users a smooth payment experience while meeting the requirements of customer service level agreements (SLAs).
