Vodafone launches Sure Signal for 4G services

Vodafone has announced that it has launched its Sure Signal Premium service, which it says will enable small and medium businesses alike to take advantage of seamless 3G and Ultrafast 4G mobile coverage throughout their workplace.

Sure Signal Premium is designed to provide a platform for future enterprise, while also offering support for location-based analytics and mobile device management.

The growing use of smartphones and other devices in the workplace means an increasing number of businesses are starting to depend on high-quality, high-speed 3G and Ultrafast 4G capacity, not just for connectivity, but also for enterprise apps.

Indeed, many workers now expect to be fully connected to everything they need on their mobile device, no matter where they are.

This is the first enterprise grade indoor mobile coverage solution of its kind in the UK, and has been developed by Vodafone in partnership with NEC, which prides itself on being a leader in the supply and system integration of indoor mobile coverage solutions.

The platform is intended for businesses and organisations with over 320 employees operating with more than 3,200 square metres of floor space, but it can be scaled up to support many thousands of users.

"The rise of the smartphone, mobile apps and BYOD (bring your own device) in the workplace means high-quality, high-speed indoor coverage is no longer just a nice-to-have for business," said Fergal Kelly, chief technology officer at Vodafone UK.

"With Sure Signal Premium, large businesses can satisfy rising indoor capacity and coverage demands in a highly integrated, well managed way. This new service is just one benefit from the £900 million we spent last year on our fixed and mobile network in the UK. This is one of the reasons 72 per cent of FTSE 100 companies choose Vodafone to meet their communications needs."
