CSL will be working alongside Vodafone to deliver managed IoT services that will underpin the rollout of connectivity for the Fourth National Lottery Licence. The new 10-year licence was awarded to Allwyn UK and will become effective from February 2024.

The initial 12-month period will see CSL deploying both fixed and mobile-managed IoT connectivity services, using Vodafone’s core network infrastructure, to provide retailers with the solutions they need to grow their own businesses and support Allwyn UK to reinvigorate the UK National Lottery so that it can continue to raise funds for good causes.

CSL manages close to 3 million IoT endpoints for business and mission critical applications across Europe and has over 25 years of experience in providing reliable and secure connectivity solutions. Their dedicated project team will work alongside Vodafone throughout the planning, delivery, and in-life phases, throughout the full term of this nationwide project.

Kathryn Platt, Head of Indirect Business, Vodafone said: “We are delighted to work alongside our specialist critical connectivity partner, CSL, to deliver managed IoT services as part of the upgrade to the National Lottery’s infrastructure. CSL’s proven IoT expertise and delivery capability powered by Vodafone’s industry leading IoT connectivity will be essential in delivering the National Lottery project and helping to support retailers with the tools they need to grow their businesses.”

Ed Heale, CSL’s CEO, added: “This deal further demonstrates CSL’s fast growing position as a leading provider of managed IoT services and reinforces CSL’s strong partnership with Vodafone. Together, we are now the go-to providers for business and mission-critical connectivity projects.”
