Driving Innovation in Healthcare and Transportation
At Vodafone, we’re consistently looking for ways to provide our clients with creative and innovative solutions for their connectivity needs. Through our recent work with SystemOne and SirenMarine, Vodafone is taking steps to drive the development of global connectivity across industries like healthcare and transportation.
This week, Vodafone announced that it is working with boat pioneer Siren Marine to provide global IoT SIM to their next generation of marine tracking products. Siren Marine’s new MT, MTC and MTC-Pro devices connect users via the Siren Marine app to critical information about their vessel such as battery voltage, temperature, water levels and position monitoring with geofence tracking. This information gives boaters the ability to better monitor, track, control and secure their boats from their phone, tablet or laptop, enhancing both the user’s safety and experience.
Vodafone also recently announced that it will be providing IoT service to SystemOne, a connected health company developing data-driven healthcare solutions. With Vodafone’s global IoT SIM and Managed IoT Connectivity Platform, SystemOne is able to bring reliable connectivity to healthcare facilities in developing countries to fight diseases like HIV, Ebola and Zika. Using over-the-air accessibility to medical devices, their platform sends test results to clinicians automatically and alerts patients of their results. In Uganda, the testing time it took for Tuberculosis declined from 60 days to just three days (20x faster).
