The Bosch Group and Vodafone have announced a global partnership that involves them integrating their machine-to-machine platforms. Companies will be offered a joint solution designed to simplify the management of products with embedded SIM cards.
Products with embedded SIMs could include automatic warning systems in lifts, air conditioning systems and escalators.
Nick Jeffery, Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Global Enterprise, said “Partnering with Bosch means that we will be able to offer manufacturers a simple way to wirelessly enable and manage a range of different devices across the world. Devices that have mobile capabilities can give higher levels of customer satisfaction as well as lead to greater efficiencies across sectors including energy, automotive, security, healthcare and construction.”
