Telefonica delivers M2M network for Next Kraftwerke

Friday 10 February 2017 | 09:15 CET | News
Telefonica has partnered with Next Kraftwerke to create an IoT M2M network for German power plant operations. Next Kraftwerke operates a control system that networks together 3,800 small to medium renewable energy producers throughout Europe. Each producer is equipped with a NextBox, which allows the plants to be centrally controlled. The network allows producers to jointly market their electricity capacity. The networked capacity of the 'virtual power plant' is around 2,700 megawatts. The system is powered by Telefonica's mobile network and its Smart M2M web-based management system.
