Tomorrow Street announced its formerly partnership with Digital Barriers, the fifth company to join the Vodafone’s Luxembourg-based innovation centre. Digital Barriers’ products deliver live video streaming over ultra-low bandwidths, and include live bodycam, vehicle and safe city solutions that are a natural fit with a rapidly growing Internet of Things sector converting wireless video surveillance into actionable intelligence.

Typically delivering bandwidth savings of more than 50%, the products are a natural fit with an IoT strategy and make wireless video surveillance a reality. The base technology was designed for security and defense, but has much wider applications. It also includes edge-AI analytics such as a facial recognition, enhancing cloud platforms. Existing customers include government and commercial organizations in more than forty countries.
“There is such increasing demand for this kind of IoT capability at the moment, that we believe this is the perfect time to be joining the Tomorrow Street and Vodafone families,” said Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers, during the press conference organized at Tomorrow Street’s premises. “We are looking forward combining our unique technologies with their unique reach right around the world and further accelerate our international growth.”
Launched a year ago, Tomorrow Street aims to transform the business-ready startups into global success stories through Vodafone’s expansive network (see our article “Tomorrow Street: The startup ecosystem’s missing puzzle piece“). “We are really excited about Digital Barriers joining Tomorrow Street,” stated Warrick Cramer, CEO of the innovation centre. “This partnership will demonstrates yet again that Luxembourg has the ability to attract and develop excellent talent, with a national ecosystem that provides the perfect platform for breakthrough ideas and innovation across the EU and the globe.”
Headquartered in London and counting up to 120 employees, Digital Barriers intends to move part of the team in Luxembourg and develop the synergies with Vodafone right in the same building.
