    Reliable and scalable M2M connectivity with Vodafone


    The importance of street lighting for cities is clear, but partnerships are what enable us to offer a higher level of service to both citizens and city leaders alike.  


    By partnering with Vodafone, a global player in the IoT industry, connected light points throughout the city can be monitored and controlled using Vodafone’s IoT connectivity and existing cellular network infrastructure.


    Together, we can provide customers with reliable, efficient and scalable M2M connectivity for connected lighting and beyond – which means it’s a key step forward in enabling your city to more easily revamp itself into a dynamic smart city of the future.
