KPN has agreed to work with Suez on using its LoRa network to improve the collection of confidential or dangerous materials. The wireless network will help track the products to ensure they are properly collected and disposed of. Last month they started a pilot to track waste containers at Suez Secure using the LoRa technology, and the first results from the trial support expanding the project. The containers to collect waste were fitted with sensors that connect to the LoRa network and can receive and send information.
