Vodafone announced the launch of Sure Signal Premium - a service for medium and large UK businesses in need of 3G and 4G coverage at their workplace. Sure Signal Premium has been developed by the carrier together with NEC and SpiderCloud Wireless. The service is intended for businesses with 320 or more employees and more than 3200 square metres of floor space. It's able to self-configure for "the best voice and data service" thanks to SpiderCloud's proprietary software.
According to Vodafone, Sure Signal is "the first mobile coverage solution of its kind in the UK". SpiderCloud provides "robust and secure" technology to connect to the carrier's exclusive mobile network, while NEC delivers the back-end. Vodafone CTO Fergal Kelly comments that the rise of smartphone, cloud apps and Bring Your Own Device is "no longer just a nice-to-have for business" and his company's new service can "satisfy rising indoo capacity and coverage demands". Customers will receive "a robust design, delivery and installation service" according to their building layout.
Mr. Kelly also considers the new service a "benefit of a £900 million investment by Vodafone UK in its fixed and mobile networks in 2013".
