IoT makes your assets smarter – and your business more successful

Put simply, IoT is about enabling objects or devices to transmit information about their status, or their surroundings, over the internet. They then become ‘smart’. (Hence the name smart technology). It does this by putting a SIM-enabled device into an object so that it can transmit and receive data over a mobile network.

Getting the most from smart objects

Adding sensors to a smart device allows it to communicate a wider range of data. Connecting it to our IoT network gives it increased coverage. There’s even a solution for hard to reach places, such as underground, through pioneering narrowband technology.

A huge range of applications

All sorts of things can become smart. A car, a camera, a fridge, a street lamp – the possibilities are endless. We’ve even collaborated with a company called Moocall to create smart cows. A SIM-enabled device attached to the cow’s tail alerts the farmer when it is ready to calve.

Smart Vehicles

Modern vehicles are already equipped with computers. Adding a SIM is a simple step that can make valuable data accessible in real time. See how smart technology enabled Emergency One to monitor their fire engines remotely, letting them make regular safety and efficiency checks.

Case study: Emergency One

Smart Buildings

Buildings contain all sorts of equipment that can be made smarter. A great example is your CCTV system. Connecting it to our IoT network will do more than just make it more efficient and reliable and give you data that can deliver valuable business insights.

Vodafone Building Surveillance

Smart Camera

Your security cameras can provide valuable information that can transform your business. Easily access visual data that can increase efficiency, improve health and safety, enhance customer experience and more.
