ThyssenKrupp has selected Vodafone to provide mobile communications services in Germany and 29 other countries across Europe, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region.
Vodafone will provide the industrial corporation with 60,000 mobile voice and data connections and services including mobile device management. Vodafone will also provide ThyssenKrupp with 50,000 machine-to-machine (M2M) cards which will aid the remote control and maintenance of industrial products including tens of thousands of ThyssenKrupp elevators and their emergency intercom systems.
The new contract represents a doubling in volume of Vodafone's previous contract with ThyssenKrupp.
"We're delighted that ThyssenKrupp has decided to expand its mobile communication services contract with Vodafone and that we'll be working together even more closely in the future, particularly in the fast-growing machine-to-machine sector. It's testament that our product and service portfolio, business model and global network are optimally geared to international corporations' requirements," explained Jan Geldmacher, CEO Vodafone Global Enterprise.
