Digital Barriers, the provider of edge-based Internet of Things (IoT) surveillance and security technologies, has formed a partnership with ‘Tomorrow Street’, Vodafone’s Luxembourg-based Innovation Centre. The collaboration will see Digital Barriers’ full suite of live, edge-intelligent products made available around the world through ‘Tomorrow Street’ and Vodafone’s extensive global network.
Digital Barriers’ edge-intelligent products deliver live video streaming over ultra-low bandwidths and help customers to gain more value out of (and use from) cellular networks. They include live bodycam, vehicle and Safe City solutions that are a natural fit with the rapidly growing IoT sector. Their focus lies in converting wireless video surveillance into actionable intelligence.
Already used by Government and commercial organisations in more than 40 countries, Digital Barriers’ streaming technology, designated EdgeVis Live, is capable of delivering encrypted real-time video while operating below 10 kbps when required. The solution is proven to deliver bandwidth savings of more than 50% over competing standards-based technologies.
Warrick Cramer, CEO of ‘Tomorrow Street’, explained to Risk Xtra: “We’re really excited about Digital Barriers joining ‘Tomorrow Street’. This partnership demonstrates yet again that Luxembourg has the ability to attract and develop excellent talent, with a national ecosystem that provides the perfect platform for breakthrough ideas and innovation across the EU and the globe.”
Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers, responded: “With such increasing demand for this kind of IoT capability at the moment, we believe this is the perfect time to be joining the ‘Tomorrow Street’ and Vodafone families, combining our unique technologies with their unique reach right around the world. We’re really looking forward to working with ‘Tomorrow Street’ to further accelerate our international growth.”
