Mobile Asset Tracking (MAT)

Mobile assets are critical to all businesses, whether it’s delivery trucks or plant machinery, shipping containers or pallets. MAT enables monitoring the status of the key assets out in the field to ensure they are secure and are put to the best possible use at all times, and therefore reducing costs and increasing security. MAT is an all-inclusive solution, with everything from tracking devices to wireless network, hosting and reporting tools.

Dedicated APN

In today’s business world, connectivity is a key factor to success. With connectivity, security comes hand in hand, and it’s a crucial requirement to ensure the integrity of any business operation. Vodafone’s Dedicated APN solution uses private mobile data connections for added security. Whether an organisation relies on data transfers from the field and back to a head office network, or relies on connectivity between multiple remote offices, a Vodafone Dedicated APN is the solution that facilitates that flow of information both efficiently and securely to offer organisations peace of mind and an optimised business process.

Connectivity (Data Networks)

Global communication is essential for continuous growth and sustainability and Vodafone’s International Network solution can be an organisation’s gateway to the rest of the world. On offer are leased lines dedicated to transfer data from one location to another, Or Ethernet VPN, for a private connection between two locations, or private connection between one location and multiple locations through a private virtual line as well as an IP-VPN – which is a private MPLS-based WAN service, that enables you to connect all your business locations together via single IP-VPN Data Network. With these solutions, Vodafone allows organisations the ease of connecting geographically, across the globe.


With ever advancing technology and its dependency on connectivity, cyber security is ever crucial and indispensable to an organization’s everyday business processes. Vodafone has partnered with ARBOR to protect organisations’ networks from Distributed Denial of Service attacks or (DDOS).
