Turn almost any device, vehicle or location into a Wi-Fi hotspot – even in the remotest areas
Vodafone Smart Hub
Maximise your team’s productivity with a good Wi-Fi signal wherever your business takes you. Vodafone Smart Hub enables your team and customers to get online in remote locations, on the move or at temporary sites.
Using Vodafone’s industry-leading IoT connectivity, the solution enables you to access and share critical information, broadcast content locally and use GPS to keep track of data, assets and personnel, in almost any location.
Vodafone Smart Hub is easy to set up, enabling Wi-Fi access within minutes of installation. Using a high-gain antenna (HGA) to increase signal strength, it can capture the best possible signal and create a Wi-Fi hotspot with a radius of up to 100 metres. It’s ideal for use when you can’t rely on your mobile data connection or where a traditional broadband connection isn’t an option.
Set up instant Wi-Fi hotspot in almost any location
Robust, compact and lightweight, Vodafone Smart Hub is easy to install in almost any vehicle, on site or at temporary locations. There’s no complicated set up. Just plug into an existing power source (or one of our optional rechargeable battery packs) and you’re good to go. The configuration happens automatically over the air – with software updates or content uploads managed remotely.
Stay in control
Vodafone Smart Hub gives you complete control over who can access your connection – and how it’s used. You can manage and monitor your connectivity in real time – limiting access to certain types of user, content and activity. What’s more, you can gain a single view of all your Smart Hubs – to manage and control data usage – ensuring you’re always on top of costs.
Generate extra revenue
Smart Hub’s features allow you to generate extra income for your business in innovative ways. One taxi firm uses Smart Hub to offer free Wi-Fi to passengers but generates income by showing a short advertisement as part of the login process. You could also offer your customers a connection to Wi-Fi as a way of standing out from the competition.
Be better informed
Smart Hub comes with a handy app that enables you to stay informed. For example if you have a fleet of vehicles or drivers, you can use its GPS tracking capability to monitor where they are – ensuring their safety and security. You can also gather information on the browsing habits of users and gain valuable insight into the interests of your customers.
