Challenges

A major airline asked TrouDigital to provide a way to keep their staff informed of regular updates. They wanted this via digital signage at their headquarters near Heathrow.

TrouDigital also had multiple connectivity suppliers across various customers. This meant managing many different SIMs and processing many invoices.

The company spoke to Onecom, their trusted technology advisor. Onecom recommended Vodafone Business’ IoT connectivity.

Solutions

TrouDigital delivered around 200 screens with Vodafone's 4G IoT connectivity. It allows every screen to maximise network availability and coverage, wherever they’re deployed.

Our Global Data Service Platform (GDSP) allows the monitoring of data usage. This ensures every screen has a continual live mobile data connection.

 

“The major airline was our first customer using cellular IoT connectivity at scale. But we now have many customers using these solutions, enabling them to utilise this type of connectivity within their screens whenever a traditional internet connection isn’t available.”

Mario Troullis, Director, TrouDigital

Benefits

Following the successful installation at the airline’s headquarters, TrouDigital were asked to complete work in other business areas.

The screens kept passengers informed about a temporary Wi-Fi outage in an airport terminal. They’ve also helped airline staff to keep operations running smoothly during a time of disruption.

TrouDigital keep customers informed thanks to reliable 4G cellular IoT connectivity from Vodafone Business in partnership with Onecom, even when there’s:

  • Heavy internet traffic
  • Low connectivity
  • A full network outage

In addition, they can now bring everything together seamlessly in one place, maximising value for money.

Mario Troullis, Director at TrouDigital, said: “Onecom’s recommendation of Vodafone’s cellular IoT connectivity has provided tremendous value to our business. It has allowed us to provide digital signage with 4G connectivity so our customers can manage screens and provide communication to their customers in areas that previously couldn't be reached due to poor internet or Wi-Fi connections.”
