Vodafone Machine-to-Machine (M2M)

Public Services

Smart Cities are necessary to adapt to the demand of urban growth. M2M technology lies at the heart of a smart city, improving the lives of the citizens within it. Imaginative and collaborative partnerships between local authorities, utilities, universities and the private sector – whether it is bus companies or software providers – are critical to make smart cities a reality.

Intelligent transport

M2M technology makes transport systems more efficient, optimising bus schedules to match capacity to demand, providing real-time transport information at the point of use. It keeps passengers informed and vehicles equipped with telemetric connections can collect data on their own performance and send alerts when issues are detected.

Transport and logistics

Remote monitoring and control

M2M solutions can allow local authorities to keep an eye on everything through remote monitoring and even simplify daily maintenance by automating tasks including remote parking controls on parking lots, selective street light activation, raising gates and bridges, increasing flows of drinking water or monitoring waste levels. These solutions can reduce costs, enable new charging models and significantly reduce the CO2 produced.

M2M monitoring solutions

Asset tracking

M2M can track people, objects and incidents to ensure security in hazardous circumstances, impose curfews, enforce no-go areas and even remotely monitor blood alcohol and drug levels.

Our Code of Conduct

Reporting concerns

All employees and contractors have a duty to report any breaches of our Code of Conduct, which is known as our "Speak Up" policy. We have launched a global external reporting scheme which allows employees and contractors to report through a third party. This new process enables us to consolidate existing whistle blowing practice in local markets, increases visibility and ensures consistency of approach in responding to concerns raised from across the organisation. Concerns may be reported anonymously and the protection of innocent people is our priority at all times. People can identify themselves to our external partner using a PIN and receive feedback. Vodafone has a non-retaliation policy and will not take any action against anyone reporting a genuine concern, even if this is proven not to result in a breach of compliance.
