Vodafone M2M's capabilities provide Enexis with the scalability to meet legislation requirements.
Following a European Union directive stipulating that at least 80% of homes must be equipped with smart metering systems to monitor electricity consumption, Enexis, one of the largest energy network operators in the Netherlands, needed a reliable and secure communications infrastructure to support smart metering.
"The solution has been really well received by homeowners, they appreciate being able to see their energy consumption in real time".

A Vodafone Machine to Machine (M2M) SIM is integrated into the smart meter and transmits energy consumption data to and from Enexis' data centres. Vodafone’s GPRS network provides a reliable and scalable solution to support this large, country-wide roll-out.
Gartner has positioned Vodafone as a "Leader" in its Magic Quadrant for Managed M2M Services, Worldwide report 2017, for the fourth consecutive year
