Vodacom SA launches IoT products

(Ecofin Agency) - Users of telecom services in South Africa can now access the “V by Vodacom” range of Internet of Things products launched by mobile operator Vodacom.

According to Saloshni Muthal, Head of Consumer IOT at Vodacom, the new range reflects Vodacom’s capacity to empower customers to keep track of the things they love. “In this way, Vodacom remains committed to transforming the lives of all citizens via the application of new and innovative technologies,” she said.

The launch of IoT products is the result of strategic investments engaged in since 2016. Last 21 July, Vodacom acquired 100% stake in IoT product player XLink Communications to “execute across the full IoT value chain by developing new IoT verticals, whilst using XLink as managed services provide.

Back in April 2017, it entered a partnership with tech solution provider PTC to set a platform for connected objects. Vodacom wanted to strengthen the network on which the new service will be offered. On May 13, 2019, Vodacom engaged talks to get majority stake in IoT innovative solution provider IoT.nxt, to guarantee the deployment of cutting-edge tools.

Vodacom intends to use IoT as a purposeful tool to address locally relevant consumer needs. V by Vodacom, as a product suite is expected to drive up the use of IoT in the country, enabling Vodacom to connect millions of South Africans for a better future,” Saloshni Muthal said.
