Waste firm Enevo tests Elisa's NB-IoT network for rubbish bin monitoring

Tuesday 21 November 2017 | 12:11 CET | News
Finnish operator Elisa said that waste disposal company Enevo is testing its new NB-IoT network. Wireless sensors installed in Enevo's rubbish containers and connected to Elisa's NB-IoT network monitor filling rates of refuse bins and indicate when they need to be emptied. Mikko Syrjalahti, R&D director at Enevo, estimates that the total price of device operations will decrease by as much as 50 percent as a result of the extended service life of devices.
