The three-year agreement with the telecommunication company, covers 100,000 connected devices in Telia’s nationwide narrowband IoT network.
Einar Aaland, Chief Product Officer at StalkIT, said: “All our customers need to do now is to mount the tracking device on their containers and switch it on. Our tracking service will provide them with a complete overview of where the containers are and what status they have, and the investment will provide quick returns because processes can be automated and waste can be reduced.”
Jon Christian Hillestad, Vice President Enterprise at Telia Norway, said: “We are proud to have a wide-ranging agreement with an entrepreneurial company with great ambitions. It is very exciting to see our pilot project from this winter going commercial with the potential to expand beyond the Norwegian borders.”
Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is the new communication technology that enables excellent coverage indoors, outdoors and in the ground. It is ideal for things that run on battery or only send data irregularly. NB-IoT is a cost-efficient way of connecting devices to existing mobile networks.
