Vodafone M2M’s capabilities provide Enexis with the scalability to meet legislation requirements

Case studies August 13, 2012

Vodafone M2M's capabilities provide Enexis with the scalability to meet legislation requirements.

Business need

Following a European Union directive stipulating that at least 80% of homes must be equipped with smart metering systems to monitor electricity consumption, Enexis, one of the largest energy network operators in the Netherlands, needed a reliable and secure communications infrastructure to support smart metering.

The solution has been really well received by homeowners, they appreciate being able to see their energy consumption in real time.

Lonneke Driessen-Mutters, Smart Metering Operations Manager, Enexis

The solution

A Vodafone Machine to Machine (M2M) SIM is integrated into the smart meter and transmits energy consumption data to and from Enexis' data centres. Vodafone’s GPRS network provides a reliable and scalable solution to support this large, country-wide roll-out.

Business benefits

  • Vodafone's M2M capabilities provide Enexis with the scalability to help Enexis to meet the legislation targets
  • Comprehensive national network coverage ensures smart metering technology can be implemented throughout the Netherlands
  • Vodafone’s dedicated M2M business unit offers best practice and strategic planning, particularly from its experience in the global energy sector
  • A dedicated Account Manager, provides a single point of contact to address any challenges and review and improve service 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.
