Telecom stakeholders urged to collaborate to promote adoption of IoT

Vodafone Ghana is urging all stakeholders in the telecom industry to collaborate to promote the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) as part of measures to shape the country's digital future.


Speaking ahead of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of mobile telecommunications, the Head of Network at Vodafone Ghana, Ebenezer Siebu, stressed the importance of advancing the IoT agenda to connect devices and meet consumers' real-time needs. 

According to him, Vodafone Ghana was already spearheading that initiative through products and services such as the V-Tracker solution, which allows companies to monitor assets, devices and driver compliance.

Mr Siebu mentioned the telecom company's internal use of V-Tracker to ensure the safety of its employees on the road, explaining that it utilises tracking devices on its vehicles to monitor speed and manage journeys for its staff, receiving alerts when drivers were speeding or have reached the point of exhaustion.

The tracking solution also encourages discipline among drivers, prompting them to remain vigilant while on the road.

Mr Siebu added that Vodafone had collaborated with key stakeholders in various enterprises and public agencies to implement tracking solutions for their vehicles. 

He expressed optimism that if more organisations embraced the IoT, it will have a far-reaching impact on people's lives and contribute to a thriving economy in Ghana.

In a related news, Vodafone Ghana partnered Metro Mass Transit Limited (MMT) to launch the Vehicle-Tracker (V-Tracker) Road Safety project. 

The initiative leverages Vodafone's IoT technology to help MMT reduce the occurrence of road accidents involving its buses.

The V-Tracker project is a pioneering initiative under Vodafone's Hero Projects, which focuses on connecting people, places and things through technology. 


April 3 marked the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first-ever mobile phone call, which revolutionised how people communicate. 

This year, the celebration marked 50 years of progress in the mobile telecommunication industry, enabling people to stay connected regardless of their location, while serving as a reminder of the significant transformations in the industry and the potential for future advancements in mobile technology.
