Vodafone Global M2M delivered a comprehensive smart metering solution to ASB Bank, one of the first in the country.

" We knew our power use had been rising and we had been trying to tackle this, but we weren't getting anywhere. With the smart meters we could see the profile of every branch immediately." Leo de Graaf,

Senior Services Engineer, ASB Bank

Business need

As part of New Zealand’s government schemes to reduce energy consumption among businesses in the country, ASB Bank wanted to install a network of smart meters throughout its offices and branches in order to monitor and control energy consumption. To be effective, it needed an experienced M2M partner, a reliable nationwide communication infrastructure and, with security in mind, a solution that was independent of the bank’s data network.


The Solution

Vodafone Global M2M delivered a comprehensive smart metering solution to ASB Bank, one of the first in the country.
