For the seventh time in a row, Gartner has named Vodafone as a Leader in its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services.

In the last 12 months we have:

  • Continued to grow, and now have 118 million managed IoT connections around the world. We believe this is more than any of the other the companies included in the Magic Quadrant.
  • Continued to take a creative and innovative approach to building IoT solutions for customers. This includes a range of Covid-19 solutions that have allowed companies to continue to trade safely through the pandemic
  • Seen customers provide positive feedback about our MPN (mobile private network) services and edge computing services for IoT.
  • Used our truly global coverage to provide customers with IoT connectivity, no matter their size, industry, or location.

You can also read more about how businesses are adopting and using IoT to succeed and become Future Ready in our latest IoT Spotlight report, which surveyed over 1,600 companies to discover the positive benefits that IoT is having on their businesses. The report reveals how they are building resilient strategies using the technology to survive today and thrive into the future.
