Vodafone Expands IoT Range for Businesses


New surveillance and energy management tools bring IoT to more companies across the United Kingdom as it looks to bring more connectivity to the workplace

Vodafone has unveiled two new digital building solutions that Vodafone says can help the likes of airports, office and shopping centres get a better smarter insight into how their businesses function on a day-to-day basis. The company has also predicted that the number of IoT connections in buildings is set to increase from 0.1 million in 2016 to 2.1 million by 2024.

Video monitoring platform

The first new offering is Vodafone building surveillance, a video monitoring platform that works alongside existing CCTV services to monitor multiple sites remotely. The service includes a smart analytics dashboard to set up alerts for certain incidents, such as if motion is detected in a specified area, with all footage being watermarked and stored securely in the cloud.

Also launching is Vodafone building energy management, which monitors systems such as lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration and heating into a single cloud platform that can be managed remotely and on multiple devices.

Improves operational efficiency

This also comes with a dashboard offering insights into business KPIs and real-time performance, allowing users to tweak how individual systems operate in order to save energy, reduce costs and improve operational efficiency. Digital building solutions present a significant opportunity for organisations to embrace new technologies to ensure space, resources and costs are optimised.

Vodafone enables firms to tap into the tremendous potential of the IoT phenomenon, while delivering better insights for faster decision-making, significantly reducing costs and risk.With automation on the rise and as your organisation expands, your Internet of Things (IoT) requirements are bound to increase.
