The Vodafone self-service platform enables IoT projects to be managed centrally, giving visibility and control of IoT devices anywhere within Vodafone’s global footprint. For example, the management tools can alert a business to unusual activity, produce reports on performance and data usage, activate new subscriptions, and much more — all in real time.

This new offering makes it easier than ever for companies of all sizes to quickly rollout their innovative IoT projects, benefit from the advances in deployment and gain the intelligence needed to drive their business decisions. Vodafone IoT Express delivers a secure and scalable on-demand IoT service to all customers in a very cost effective way.”

Ralph Shaw, CEO, Asavie said, “Vodafone IoT Express is an example of how Asavie is working with a global leading mobile network operator to allow enterprises of all sizes to immediately deploy and scale their IoT projects. By securely managing network connections from the edge to the Cloud and eliminating the typical delays in deployment and revenue generation, enterprises can immediately benefit from the IoT economy. We’re proud of our ten-year relationship with Vodafone and look forward to building on our joint successes.”

Vodafone and Asavie will present this new initiative at next week’s TechConnect Live conference on 30th May, RDS, Dublin.
