Sensoneo is ready to use America’s first NB-IoT network for smart waste
Smart waste solutions provider Sensoneo has confirmed it’s ready to be among the first to use America’s first nationwide NB-IoT network.
Sensoneo has been testing its smart waste fill-level sensors in several locations across the USA in past weeks to ensure its devices are fully prepared for when T-Mobile’s nationwide NB-IoT network goes live.
Lubas Tuma, CEO of Sensoneo, comments:
“We are happy to see the launch of the narrowband IoT network by T-Mobile. It is a very important milestone and a great opportunity to drive smart solutions that enable the tracking and optimisation of equipment in different industries, leading to improved health and safety, reduced costs and improved efficiency.
We feel very proud to be one of the very first vendors who have tested their devices on T-Mobile’s NB-IoT network.“
Back in January, Telecoms reported on T-Mobile’s intention to launch the first NB-IoT network in America with nationwide availability.
Mike Sievert, Chief Operating Officer for T-Mobile, said:
“The number of connected devices already outnumbers the worldwide population, and it’s only getting bigger. So, of course, T-Mobile is taking advantage of the latest IoT tech to make it simpler – and massively more affordable – for businesses and cities to connect things.”
NB-IoT is a low power, wide area network LTE-Advanced tech that offers benefits like low power usage, long battery life, and low device cost.
Sensoneo is based in Slovakia and builds its own fill-level smart sensors that are able to monitor any type of waste in any type of bin.
Fill-level information is transferred to Sensoneo software where it is used to provide customers with data-driven decision-making and the optimisation of waste collection routes, frequencies, and vehicle load.
Their solution is currently deployed in 53 locations across four different continents.
