In the call, I discussed three bespoke projects, one to connect hospital beds for the care bed manufacturer called “Stiegelmeyer”, another concerning a “Digital Addressable Lighting Interface” (DALI) LPWA gateway for our customer BEGA, a water metering LPWA gateway for “RWW” to help with leakage detection and finally a few other examples from different market segments. In each case, grandcentrix establishes an end- to- end communication blueprint from the device to an application in the cloud. We use European or Asian manufacturing partners to assemble any hardware we design and we deliver either a boxed or fully integrated and certified product to our customers / their assembly lines.
Our colleagues from IoT.nxt based in South Africa who specialise in smart building and asset monitoring services in a governmental and commercial context, plus “Mezzanine”, also based in South Africa, who provide IoT application services in the Agriculture segment also had the opportunity to present their services. Through Vodafone, these specialists just like us, can address Enterprise markets worldwide.
All in all, I think Vodafone IoT showed that Vodafone is much more than the leading global IoT Connectivity provider but also a multifaceted organisation which can leverage Centres on Competence across a global footprint, spreading best technology and best practice. Please take a rewatch the event here.
