PRESS RELEASE:
Vodafone Offers Irish Businesses Access to Its Global IoT Network

Vodafone Ireland, in partnership with Asavie, a leader in secure Enterprise Mobility and IoT Connectivity, have announced the launch of Vodafone IoT Express. IoT Express is a new offering designed to enable Irish businesses avail of highly scalable and secure SIM-based IoT connectivity on cellular networks, including Vodafone's latest Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) network.

Vodafone IoT Express unlocks Enterprise-grade IoT tools for everyone and is compatible with as little as one sim. It is suitable for both large businesses starting a new trial or a smaller company beginning to develop their IoT capabilities with small investment. Now, for the first time, Irish companies will have full access to Vodafone's powerful IoT management tools – delivered across the Asavie PassBridge© software-defined network connectivity platform – which can be fully connected in as little as a week.

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.

Debbie Power, Vodafone Ireland, IoT Country Manager, said, "At Vodafone Ireland we are committed to ensuring our customers can conveniently access the vast array of benefits provided by IoT connectivity. 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."
