We work with many companies in different industries. Here are chosen case studies from areas in which NB-IoT clearly excels over other IoT solutions.
We are the communication partner for a very sophisticated way of optimizing irrigation and plant protection in agriculture, created by Clever Farms. Sensors in the ground collect information about changes in temperature and humidity. These are delivered to an application that compares them to drought or pest risk models and either directly issues an irrigation command or recommendations for pesticide application. This allows the farmers to act based on real-time data and past analyzes and helps them save water, pesticides, and labor.
This solution works similarly on the golf courses, where the cost of pumping and storing water and irrigation is very high.
The sensors of our partners measure the values of dust, CO2, NOx in the air and transmit these data to the IoT Hub via the M2MC solution. Municipalities and citizens can use this information to optimize traffic or when needed, issue recommendations and warnings about bad air condition.
Mobile transit sensors can gather information about the number and type of vehicles passing through the given location. One of the main advantages of this solution is that there is no building required, as sensors can be added on to the existing infrastructure and there is no need power supply.
One of our customers in the Utility sector is an IT integrator that can connect data from sensors located at water meters (even in water meter shafts and basements, where other LPWAN technologies encounter transmission problems) with data from the CRM and accounting systems of water companies.
Thanks to their integration, they were able to automate and accelerate the entire process of data collection on consumption, billing and invoicing. Very interesting are the outputs for detecting water leakage from the water network connected directly to the service centers.
The benefits include the possibility of flexible billing of water consumption, decreasing the operating costs of the water network, better payment collection.
