Siren Marine signs deal with Vodafone

Vodafone said it is partnering with Connected Boat pioneer Siren Marine.

Vodafone said it is partnering with Connected Boat pioneer Siren Marine to bring global Internet of Things capabilities to vessels around the world.

Using Vodafone’s global IoT SIM, Siren Marine’s next-generation connected boat products will provide private boat owners, fleet managers and boat manufacturers with remote access to vital information about their vessels.

“Siren Marine products provide boaters around the world with the peace of mind that their boats are always secure and ready to go,” Siren Marine founder and CEO Capt. Daniel A. Harper said in a statement.

“With Vodafone’s global IoT capabilities and expertise in the IoT space, we are able to offer our customers the best coverage and most reliable service, resulting in the best possible boating experience.”

With IoT connectivity from Vodafone, Siren Marine’s new MT, MTC and MTC-Pro models will provide boaters with the ability to monitor, track, control and secure their boats no matter where they are in the world. By installing a Siren Marine MTC system on board and accessing the Siren Marine app, users can monitor critical information such as battery voltage, temperature, water levels and position monitoring with geofence tracking.

Siren Marine users receive instant alerts via smartphone, table or computer if a critical event occurs, such as an unauthorized entry or water leakage into the boat’s bilge. Users can track the exact location of a boat and remotely control on-board accessories, including lights, battery switches, climate control systems and bilge pumps.

Siren Marine’s next-generation 3G and LTE devices will introduce enhanced connectivity with Vodafone’s IoT capabilities. The technology allows boaters to travel seamlessly between countries without the need to switch SIMs. Vodafone’s global network will let Siren Marine expand internationally and play an important role in advancing IoT technology.

“The Internet of Things is making a major impact in all areas of the transportation industry, from boats to cars to motorcycles,” Vodafone Americas president Andrew Morawski said. “IoT is revolutionizing the way we travel and helping to bring the marine industry into the future.”

Siren Marine’s next suite of products will launch in June with the MTC model, followed by the MT and MTC-Pro later this year.
