Vodafone, CCP partner for NB-IoT
CCP’s first target market is the food industry, where food safety regulation, energy savings and waste reduction is driving adoption of solutions to continuously monitor temperature, humidity and other critical control points.
The two companies demonstrated the system’s benefits during a trial in May, when CCP deployed its first critical control point monitoring solution installation at Sydney International Airport.
CCP’s smart sensors were installed at Veloce Espresso to help automate the cafe’s refrigeration temperature monitoring processes, simplify record-keeping for food safety compliance and provide immediate notification of changes to the refrigeration systems.
“Many customers in the food industry work with industrial coolrooms and refrigeration facilities located in basements — circumstances which require deep, indoor signal penetration offered by NB-IoT,” said Vodafone’s General Manager of Enterprise Business, Neelum Prakash.
“We switched on our NB-IoT network at the airport to provide a timely and effective solution for CCP’s needs, helping it grow its business and even more effectively help its customers,” she added.
“Now all businesses operating at Sydney’s International Airport can take advantage of the vast benefits NB-IoT connectivity offers.”
CCP Technologies CEO Michael White said Vodafone’s agility and IoT expertise was what the company was looking for in a network partner.
“Seamless cold chain monitoring has been a universal food industry goal for over a decade. With the convergence of cloud, IoT, blockchain, big data, AI technologies, we can now begin a new revolution in supply chain management,” he said.
“Vodafone’s NB-IoT network provides a connectivity solution which matches industry needs.”
