Investment in next-generation infrastructure to meet growing end-user demand and support growth in other sectors of the economy are critical for any successful telecommunications operator. Here’s how Vodafone Group faces the challenge. “Our performance has not been good enough. To consistently deliver, Vodafone must change,” Vodafone Group CEO Margherita Della Valle said, at the announcement of the group’s annual results. Tomorrow Street, the innovation branch of the telecommunications firm located in Luxembourg, took on board the CEO’s priorities: customers, simplicity and growth, as well as those of senior leaders. In early 2023, it launched a call for scale ups to participate in its first SCALEUP X accelerator programme, seeking potential partners to help tackle innovation gaps and bring businesses to Luxembourg. Out of the 200 scale-ups identified, 20 were invited to Luxembourg from 17-19 October to meet decision makers at Vodafone’s Procurement Control Centre. Driving efficiencies & improving customer experience “Everybody’s curious about generative AI and how that can be used to make us work better inside Vodafone and also to drive customer experience,” Tomorrow Street director and business development manager Neil Cocker told Silicon Luxembourg. Among the companies active in generative AI who were invited to Luxembourg was Viable , a small California-based startup which organises unstructured qualitative data such as customer feedback by theme, and urgency so that it can offer meaningful insights. “I think we’re one of the smallest companies to be invited,” Viable VP Sales and customer growth Danny Varty explained, adding: “I think they sought us out because of this specific focus on customer experience that Vodafone has prioritised and that’s interesting because it’s something we can help them with.” The firm, which claims that half of its customers are Europe-based, developed its technology as an early partner with Open AI, the American artificial intelligence company that developed ChatGPT. “It allowed us to build a lot of things in combination,” said Varty, adding: “And we’ve matured a little bit more than some of the new AI models that are now getting started.” He does not rule out opening a European headquarters in the future. Emplay was another exciting AI player invited to the table. Founded in Dublin, California, in 2013, the scale-up offers a conversation automation training engine that helps to improve sales via analytics, advisory, and automation solutions by responding to questions. “If you ask a question, it will give you an answer and can recommend the next steps and then offer to complete those next steps through system interactions,” explained CEO and founder Sanchita Sur. Popular use cases include technical system support, by asking complex questions, summarising and converting conversations into tickets, which are prioritised and sent to the appropriate person to solve. Call centres offer another opportunity as does HR for tasks from recruitment to retirement. A scale-up with the potential to dramatically boost efficiencies is data centre optimisation firm Vigilent . Founded in 2009, for the last decade the firm has focused on monitoring a range of metrics in data centres and providing solutions to improve energy efficiency. Today the firm has a European headquarters in the Netherlands and a UK office and works with close to 1,000 data centres globally. “The only continent we’re not on is Antarctica,” explained Mike Driscoll VP sales at Vigilent, adding: “We’ve been doing business on a country-by-country level. We are now trying to elevate the conversation to understand how we can help Vodafone across its entire portfolio.” Tomorrow Street CEO Kenneth Graham said he will be happy if the group can sign contracts with around three of the visiting scale-ups. He added that Tomorrow Street will host a second edition of the programme in 2024 with new priorities.

Additech designs, builds and operates a unique at-the-pump automobile engine maintenance system. Additech's system blends specialty fuel additives into fuel as it is pumped. These specially blended fuel system products clean vital engine parts as consumers drive.
Hexaformer's technology aims to make it possible to manufacture closed symmetrical delta shaped transformer cores. Per the company, it does this by winding the transformer core instead of stacking sheets of metal. The benefits according to the company of this design to transformers include: a lower load loss, lighter, smaller volume, less vibrations, less noise, smaller electromagnetic stray fields, lower inrush current, and no third harmonic. The same type of technology is also used in the Hexaformer reactors for phase compensation. These cores are also wound to a triangular shape on which three coils are mounted to make the solutions small, yet efficient. The benefits per Hexaformer of this transformer technology include reducing the losses in the electricity grid as well as lowering the cost of operation and maintenance by 5% to 15% compared to traditional transformers.
Nemometrics is a company that received a STTR Phase II grant for a project entitled: Nonintrusive Electrical Monitor (NEMO). Their project will develop and qualify a Non-Intrusive Electrical Monitor product (NEMO) to provide inexpensive, accurate, in depth monitoring of electrical usage, permit expanded energy savings and provide additional information, like potential equipment faults and failures. NEMO increases the amounts and kinds of diagnostic information that can be gleaned from a single set of electrical measurements, thus lowering the cost of monitoring building energy management systems. By analyzing the transient signatures produced when different electrical equipment draws power, NEMO can identify which of multiple loads turn on and off and assess their condition. The objectives of the research are to determine: the reliability of NEMO algorithms in the presence of multiple loads, prioritize several possible diagnostic analyses for the commercial product, and maximize the automation of NEMO data analysis while minimizing the need for human scrutiny and intervention. Phase I demonstrated the value of NEMO systems in monitoring and diagnostics with air conditioning units. The Phase II research plan calls for continuing the development work and installation of a qualified prototype in commercial buildings. Data analysis will reveal inefficiencies in building operation and effectiveness of the algorithms themselves. This project will develop a system for non-intrusive detection and identification of multiple electrical loads with major energy conservation and other benefits. Time of use data can be used to create new automated algorithms that minimize energy use and optimize heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system operation without affecting occupant comfort, while electrical health diagnostics can signal when a motor is nearing failure or a valve has jammed. A reduction in the cost of in-depth monitoring allows more commercial facilities to reap energy and maintenance savings from these algorithms and the NEMO product that contains them. Actual measurement rather than estimation of initial and ongoing electrical power consumption of electrical equipment within a commercial building enables verification of upgrade performance. It also facilitates design and operation of intelligent, energy efficient buildings and assists in attaining Leadership in Energy Efficient Design (LEEDTM) certification. By promoting energy efficiency in buildings, NEMO will enable customers to reduce their energy costs, reduce or eliminated unscheduled maintenance and increase profitability.
Core4 Systems is developing a system to more efficiently cool data centers. Core4's promised energy savings comes from reduced compression, achieved in a number of ways. Instead of filtering external air, Core4 claims to use only internal air ¢‚¬" in a method called refrigerant-side economizing ¢‚¬" which attempts to mitigate the filtering costs while cutting compressor energy consumption.Per the company, Core4 also uses outside wet-bulb temperatures ¢‚¬" the temperature at which water begins to evaporate outside ¢‚¬" rather than the higher dry bulb temperature, which aims to allow its gear to continue economizing even on extremely hot, humid days when airside systems can't. Refrigerant-side economizing also cuts down on server and hard drive failures, which contribute to the volume of e-waste shipped to overseas landfills.
