The main challenge in this project lies in the water telemetry use case, as it takes NB-IoT technology to the extreme. This deployment requires a high concentration of devices, as well as underground locations under a wrought iron slab that’s surrounded by concrete. Moreover, the life of the batteries must be extended by at least 12 years and, finally, the deliveries must have 100% daylight reading qualities.
“The deployment of the NB-IoT network for the transformation of the water management contributes to an improvement in the environment because we cease to produce more than 5 cubic hectometres per year while offering the same service, which is reflected in a reduction of emissions totalling more than 1,400 tonnes of CO2”.
