Vodafone Australia teams with CCP Technologies in NB-IoT push

Vodafone Australia has struck a new partnership with Melbourne-based IoT product developer CCP Technologies, with CCP to provide critical control point monitoring services to its customers using the carrier’s Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) network.

Vodafone said the firms demonstrated the benefits of a partnership during a trial in May, when CCP rolled out its first critical control point monitoring service installation at Sydney International Airport, powered by Vodafone’s NB-IoT network.

CCP targets mainly the food industry, where food safety regulation, energy savings and waste reduction drives take-up of its offering, allowing for continuous monitoring of temperature, humidity and a range of other critical control points.

Vodafone’s General Manager of Enterprise Business, Neelum Prakash, said Vodafone’s NB-IoT network provides an ideal solution to the challenges CCP was facing.

“We have been working closely with CCP since the launch of our NB-IoT network in Australia,” said Vodafone GM of Enterprise Business Neelum Prakash. ‘Many customers in the food industry work with industrial cool-rooms and refrigeration facilities located in basements – circumstances which require deep-indoor signal penetration offered by NB-IoT.”

“CCP has recognised a great opportunity in an emerging market, and Vodafone is proud to help it deliver a solution which is disrupting the food industry,” she said.
