EE has revealed a host of new products and services as it bids to target the enterprise market.

The UK operator unveiled a “connected strategy” in June with the launch of a 4G Action Camera for the consumer market.

On Tuesday, it announced several solutions for businesses, as well as the public sector.

These include a Connected Vehicle solution, which features a 4G router and antenna that turns cars and vans into wireless hotspots.

Staffordshire Police has been testing the technology and said it was providing “vital access to information on the move”.

In the healthcare field, EE has launched an Interactive Messaging service and developed two apps.

The Interactive Messaging service is SMS-based and allows GPs to send personalised and tailored text messages to patients.

EE said it was had confirmed deals with several customers, but couldn't name them publicly yet.

The Patient-GP app allows patients to book, view and cancel appointments, while the Clinical Observation app has been designed to digitise patient observations on hospital wards.

EE, which worked with parters PAERS and ThinkShield to build the apps, said it was trialing both with Clinical Commissioning Groups.

Elsewhere, a 4G Rapid Site solution, initially aimed at the construction sector, enables mobile broadband connectivity to be set up on building sites within three days.

EE said the fully managed service avoids the month-long period that firms typically have to wait for fixed broadband to be deployed.

Housing firm Green Square has been testing the tech and said it saved them money and enabled them to build more houses.

Meanwhile, the Action Cam has been given a makeover for the business market.

Now called Capture Cam, it is smaller, cheaper and allows businesses such as estate agents to stream HD video to their customers.

Finally, Public Wi-Fi In A Box has been launched to get over what EE called “the complex regulatory requirements” that businesses need to adhere to when wanting to offer a Wi-Fi service to their customers.

Earlier this month, EE revealed that its businesses subscriber base grew 40 percent year-on-year to reach 8,710.

It does not split out sales from the enterprise market, but group revenues fell.

EE Chief Executive Olaf Swantee said: “We’ve shown what 4G can do for consumers, and now businesses and the public sector are using the quality and reliability of the network that we’ve built to boost the UK economy and tackle some of the biggest issues facing Britain today.

“The impact of 4G adoption on vital UK services is incredibly powerful.

“Helping the NHS and Emergency Services provide better service to the community, more cost effectively, is exactly the type of real world benefit that our world-leading mobile network enables.

“That’s why we’re launching our new capabilities for these sectors and helping them prepare for the IoT future where everything is connected.”
