Vodafone telemetry reaches one million connections
Posted on 28-Apr-2014 15:17. | Tags Filed under: News.



With the recent signing of a five year global agreement with International Telematics Limited (ITL), Vodafone New Zealand has reached over one million Machine-to-Machine (M2M) connections. For the third year in a row, Vodafone has also topped the rankings for its M2M services in Analysys Mason’s independent M2M annual scorecard.

As part of the contract signed this week, Vodafone will use its global platform to provide services in markets where International Telematics is well established, including Australia and North America. And as the company expands globally, other countries will be readily available to them as well.

International Telematics uses M2M technology to provide asset location monitoring and security, driver behaviour reports and environmental impact assessments. They are one of only two providers in New Zealand that are NZTA‐approved to collect electronic road-user charges.

Global CEO of International Telematics, Guy Colglazier, was in New Zealand for the signing.

“In the past, it has been very difficult to penetrate a new international market. Vodafone’s reliable network will help us remove the traditional barriers for expansion offshore,” Guy explains. “Now, with Vodafone’s global M2M platform, we can ship our product straight from our warehouse and know that whether the box is opened in Adelaide or Albuquerque, it’s going to work in the same way without any adjustments.”

Tony Bacon, Head of M2M at Vodafone New Zealand, says the global M2M platform removes the complexity for businesses expanding internationally. “Although it’s relatively straightforward to offer an M2M solution within a single country, being able to scale that solution internationally is where Vodafone’s competitive advantage lies. With Vodafone, International Telematics now has the ability to connect to over 580 mobile networks around the world.”

Tony adds: “Vodafone’s M2M platform is currently used for services ranging from electronic road tolling, to refrigerator monitoring, to security services and electricity metering. Businesses of all shapes and sizes can reduce complexity and cost and – in the case of International Telematics – expand internationally, by using M2M.”
