Vodafone UK has extended a contract to supply managed IoT connectivity to CSL Dualcom.

The new 10-year deal builds on an existing 20-year deal between the two companies.

Vodafone will supply its Managed IoT Connectivity Platform to give CSL real-time data about the status of the 400,000-plus devices it has in residential and commercial buildings throughout Europe.

Specifically, CSL provides connectivity for M2M devices in market sectors where there is a threat to life or property.

It provides dual signalling systems to the fire and security markets, and wireless failover technology to the telecare market, for example.

Its technology includes WorldSIM, which uses a patented algorithm to select the strongest network.

The company launched a dedicated M2M division earlier this year and plans to launch new products in Q3 or Q4.

CSL Managing Director Ed Heale said: “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.”

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Earlier this month, Machina Research said revenues from the IoT are set to top $3 trillion in 2025, up from $750 billion last year.

Vodafone’s latest research report into the sector, released in July, found that enterprises are spending as much on the IoT as on cloud, mobility and analytics.

The operator saw a 29 percent increase in IoT revenues in the 2015/16 financial year.

In June, it won a deal to supply SIM cards to American robotic exoskeleton manufacturer Ekso Bionics.
