Applications

Local Authority

There are in excess of 320 local authorities in the UK, each with 10 or more silos and each facing the threat of budget cuts. To help take cost out, Mobius has just launched a partnership programme with the extended supply chain partners to help deliver these savings. Within the overall strategy, the  most exciting single new development is the introduction of reservoir buying which allows councils to consolidate spend across silos. This is the most radical change to purchasing practices in a decade and Mobius is the first operator partner to offer this to the local authorities. Read more

Health Care SIM

Security and Surveillance

M2M can provide a back-up system in case the landline is cut. But the reality is that it could be cheaper to do away with the landline in the first place. Should the thief be sophisticated enough to jam any radio systems, GPRS units can even recognise that they are being jammed and send through emergency signals to your site. In addition we are seeing an increasing use of CCTV cameras sending data over GPRS. This could be as simple as a jpeg generated on the fly and sent by email to streaming video live using sophisticated compression techniques. Read more
