Vodafone Machine to Machine

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology allows devices and appliances to talk and interact with each other directly, and crucially, without human input.

It opens up a huge range of possibilities for how your business could run, grow and keep customers happy.  Think of a retail chiller that automatically re-orders stock when it’s empty or a truly smart bin, which can tell the service provider when it needs to be emptied.

Here at Vodafone we’re a world leader in M2M technology. We have the systems, funding and structures in place to help your business profit from this technology and its many uses.

M2M has been reshaping and improving the way we do business for years and its use is rapidly growing.

Many local and global businesses are on board with M2M and are seeing the benefits. Here is just a small taste of what M2M can do.

  • ASB Bank - PDF (0.5MB)

    ASB Bank of New Zealand cut its energy costs by $1 million annually, with the help of an M2M smart metering solution. Energy use can now be monitored across branches in near real-time.

  • Precision Farming - PDF (1MB)

    Precision Farming leads the world in helping farmers manage their fertiliser use and uses M2M to do it. A special GPS Farming device is installed in the vehicle spreading the fertiliser so the farmer can login and see where every last kilogram has been deposited - farmers can instantly spot any wastage and adjust their next order.

  • eRoad - PDF (1MB)

    EROAD captures precise data on a vehicle’s location, speed, time and distance covered, and uses this to work out Road User Charges. By using M2M technology EROAD can now tell us if a truck is off the public road network so that tax payments can be adjusted to reflect this and fleet managers can now spot wasteful fuel use, such as idling due to traffic hold-ups.
