The contract is most crucial for AN-ION as the winner is expected to maintain IRCTC servers as well.

Speaking to reporters, Bansal said, “I took it as a challenge to offer excellent Wi-Fi services on our trains. So, even before the official announcement, I asked my IAS officers to scout for the best Wi-Fi service provider in the country. After extensive search,we zeroed in on AN-ION Wireless. It has excellent track record in providing services to over 10K students in a university in Karnataka.”

He also expressed confidence that the problems of IRCTC website during Tatkal booking will be solved after AN-ION Wireless takes over the maintenance of servers.

As soon as the news came out, my friends in other Universities called me up and asked about AN-ION. I explained them about the efficiency of AN-ION and their customer-centric approach.”

Meanwhile,the AN-ION customer service stalls at Innovation Center in MIT and University Building are being flooded with flower bouquets from the students congratulating the company.
