CSL are proud to announce the extension of their existing agreement with Mobile Network Operator Vodafone.
The 10 year agreement with Vodafone will support CSL's expansion into new verticals, including retail and utilities, as well as their continued investment for their core Fire & Security customer base. Vodafone’s commitment to maintaining and improving all services (2G, 3G & 4G) will also support CSL’s product innovation and service commitments.
This new deal, which extends a 20 year relationship, supports CSL as they continue to add 6,000 connections to their base each month. Vodafone’s expertise as a total communications provider that recognises the importance of maintaining investment into critical network services will be invaluable to CSL’s growing service and IoT needs. CSL is trusted to provide the connectivity of nearly half a million connected M2M/IoT devices throughout Europe.
The Vodafone platform provides a complete, hosted solution for managing IoT assets wherever they are deployed, enabling CSL to have real-time data about the status of its devices and connections and centralised control for managing any configuration changes, while maintaining the highest levels of security and reliability.
Cyril Deschanel, Head of Northern Europe for Vodafone IoT, said: “Vodafone is delighted to be working with CSL. We have a strong, long-established relationship with CSL and this latest venture really cements our partnership. It’s a great investment and example of how we can provide mission-critical level connectivity for the alarm security sector through the capabilities we now offer via our network.”
Ed Heale, Managing Director of CSL commented: “We are adding 6,000 connections to our base a month, all of which provide complete end-to-end connectivity solutions for security, fire, health and other mission critical IoT applications. By extending our partnership with Vodafone, we have the expertise of a total communications provider that recognises the importance of maintaining investment into critical network services and is able to support our growing service and IoT needs.”
