Vodafone Business, Extreme E’s Official Technology Communications Partner, has been working diligently on incorporating innovative emerging technologies into its global operations and the series’ traditional programs.
Dealing with forest fires or addressing water acidity issues in Scotland are some of the tasks which Vodafone Business is actively contributing, making Extreme E leave a sustainable positive impact at each competition venue.
At the same time, they improve safety at these sites, as due to the remote nature of the locations on the race calendar, the question arises as to how safety nets are set up at such venues.

To this end, and with the aim of ensuring the safety of the series, Vodafone in Health has collaborated with Proximie to bring its world-class remote medical collaboration platform to the Extreme E medical team.
Platform Functionality for Extreme E Benefit
The platform runs on a Vodafone enterprise mobile private network and enables real-time medical collaboration, video training enhancements and data analytics.
By providing Extreme E with a networked video infrastructure, medical and race control teams now have the ability to monitor events in real time during competition.
In the event of an accident, they can understand the circumstances surrounding the incident before they even arrive on site, resulting in invaluable time savings.
“Vodafone is a world leader in communications, innovation, and technology and to be able to use solutions like this for our championship is a fantastic example of our shared ethos,” says Ali Russell, Extreme E CEO.
“As a purpose-driven sports series, it is essential that we align ourselves with companies that share our core values, and initiatives like this are extremely important to the success of our series,” he concluded.
