Cosmote said it launched the first 'smart university campus' using Narrow-Band Internet of Things technology (NB-IoT) in Xanthi in collaboration with Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH). The pilot project fully uses the advantages of NB-IoT technology for the implementation of smart applications for air and water quality monitoring applications, as well as the management of campus's lighting and gas oil.

In the context of the new pilot project, an 'Air Quality Monitoring' was placed at DUTH's campus to measure real-time temperature, humidity, pressure and various gases and particles, and enable optimal design and appropriate actions to reduce atmospheric pollution.

For 'Smart Fuel Tank Management,' a gas oil level meter has been installed to prevent over-consumption, fuel theft and valuate invoices. This application is based on the platform of the Greek company Fuelics and is being implemented in cooperation with Ericsson.

In addition, the 'Water Quality Measurement' platform, which helps to ensure the campus' students drinking water quality was implemented in collaboration with the Greek company Wings.

Last, the company will soon install the 'Smart Lighting' platform which will help lighting to adapt to different levels of intensity depending on the season and the time of the day by significantly reducing energy consumption. The pilot project was implemented with the contribution of Deutsche Telekom's hub:raum incubator. All products use the NB-IoT Cosmote network for data transfer and device communication.
