Vodafone New Zealand activates millionth M2M connection

29 Apr 2014

Following the recent signing of a five year global agreement with New Zealand-based International Telematics Limited (ITL), Vodafone New Zealand has announced that it has notched up over one million machine-to-machine (M2M) connections. As part of the contract signed last week, Vodafone will use its global platform to provide services in markets where International Telematics is established, including Australia and North America. Tony Bacon, Head of M2M at Vodafone New Zealand, commented: ‘Although it’s relatively straightforward to offer an M2M solution within a single country, being able to scale that solution internationally is where Vodafone’s competitive advantage lies. With Vodafone, International Telematics now has the ability to connect to over 580 mobile networks around the world’.
