"The Internet of Things is already beginning to transform how businesses operate," said Vodafone Group Chief Executive, Vittorio Colao. "Over the next decade, the expansion of IoT into consumer markets will bring about an equally dramatic shift in how people manage their daily lives, at home and in their leisure time.

"'V by Vodafone' makes it simple to connect a wide range of IoT-enabled devices, helping customers keep everyone and everything that matters to them safe and secure."

Vodafone is one of the world's leading mobile companies for the implementation of IoT, managing over 59mn connections worldwide and a services platform designed for business-critical applications.
