IoT team, Amscreen has already built a network of more than 12,000 connected interior and exterior media screens and kiosks across the globe. Its connected street infrastructure is used by media owners, retailers, local authorities and advertising companies.

The extended partnership sees Vodafone’s IoT connectivity management solutions continue to power Amscreen’s RDM™ screen monitoring technology and content analytics service.

Through our partnership with Vodafone, we’re looking to expand the benefits enabled by Internet of Things technology to bring tangible benefits to local authorities and the community.”
