Sydney, Australia – Sydney-based National Narrowband Network Company (NNNCo), the 100 percent IoT telco, has signed a contract with technology provider Wellness TechGroup, to provide IoT network coverage to 70,000 smart streetlights in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. The project will cover 200 square kilometres and provide smart street lighting to more than 1.3 million people, improving community and road safety, and reducing carbon emissions by up to 80%. This initiative will also establish an infrastructure-based network that can accommodate other smart city initiatives.
NNNCo, Wellness TechGroup and their partners will replace Montevideo’s existing lighting system with LED technology and roll out a powerful and interoperable remote management system, which is designed to reduce carbon emissions by 31,500 tonnes of CO2 per year, a decrease of approximately 80 percent. The project will also improve the quality of public lighting service and provide greater efficiency and operations management to the whole city.
