Vodafone and NantWorks to explore global mobile data services development
Posted on 22-Sep-2011 13:19. | Tags Filed under: News.



NantWorks LLC has announced a partnership with Vodafone Group, established through Vodafone’s new “Vodafone Xone” Silicon Valley-based R&D center, to explore the development of advanced and innovative global mobile data services.

Newly formed Los Angeles company NantWorks LLC and Vodafone have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on mobile health services over advanced wireless networks to deliver patient care remotely, as well as explore expansion into other areas.

NantWorks is the inaugural partner signed through the new Vodafone Xone, which aims to identify and qualify innovative technologies from startups, R&D labs, universities and venture capital portfolios.

NantWorks Chairman and CEO Patrick Soon-Shiong, M.D., who has developed and sold two multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies and is now focused on communications network technologies for the benefit of science and education as well as healthcare said:

“We are delighted to be working with Vodafone. With Vodafone’s global mobile network, and its partner Verizon Wireless here in the United States, Vodafone is truly a global mobile powerhouse. It is the ideal partner for NantWorks to work with as we develop the technologies that will bring the digital revolution to more aspects of people’s lives, including healthcare and education. I welcome the opening of Vodafone xone here in California and I look forward to a great partnership between NantWorks in Silicon Beach and Vodafone Xone in Silicon Valley.”

Vodafone Group Chief Executive Vittorio Colao said: “NantWorks is an exciting and visionary company – exactly the kind of partner that we have come to Silicon Valley to work with.”
