Vodafone Ghana IoT service provides businesses with centrally hosted secure self-service which delivers authentic and access control, near real-time usage, and management of any global SIM.

“Our solutions promise to deliver usage at ‘near’ realtime – meaning, 1/10th of milliseconds will provide that information to you. That is life saving enough,” Eddie stated during his presentation.

He said businesses can manage four networks on just one Vodafone SIM with Vodafone Ghana’s IoT services.

So instead of signing four contracts with four different mobile network operators, businesses can manage more on just one SIM, he added.

“IoT means a SIM is not in a room environment. So the SIM that is your phone is with you and it keeps your temperature. The SIM will begin to malfunction when it goes beyond 35 or 50 degrees. So we have SIMs that can withstand every temperature,” said Eddie.

Vodafone IoT service covers some of the most crucial areas of the economy including health, transport, logistics, banking, utilities and security.
