BH Technologies uses IoTerop’s IOWA & ALASKA to enable NB-IoT and LTE-M
BH Technologies' Redin product encouraging a more thoughtful approach to waste disposal
Grenoble, France – 8 November, 2022 – BH Technologies, a smart public lighting and waste collection management company, has partnered with IoTerop, an IoT device management software company, to offer optimized waste management solutions to its growing list of global clients. Its Redin product offers access control for waste containers, encouraging a thoughtful approach to waste disposal through individualized monitoring and billing. This product has been equipped with NB-IoT and LTE-M connectivity, capitalizing on open standards to ensure accessibility for smart cities around the world.
Redin Incentivizes Waste Reduction
BH Technologies’ Redin product sits on top of a waste bin and controls the locking and unlocking of the drum. A registered user can open the container’s drum and deposit their waste, while the device tracks the amount of waste contributed by the user. This will enable individualized billing capabilities that depend on the amount of waste contributed, and is designed to provide a strong motivation for thoughtful disposal, enhanced recycling, and increased composting efforts.
Using Cellular IoT to Develop Future-Proof Products
Since its founding in 1998, BH Technologies has been a pioneer in IoT solutions. They established a reputation for their expertise in radio technology, and enhanced this reputation through the adoption of LoRaWAN technology in 2015. Wanting to expand their offer and maintain their leadership position in lighting and waste management solutions in 2022, BH Technologies used IoTerop’s IOWA software development kit to enable their products with NB-IoT and LTE-M capabilities using the LwM2M protocol.
“BH Technologies has a leadership position in France and is looking to strengthen its position in other European countries. NB-IoT and LTE-M connectivity are a key factor to further penetrate these markets. IoTerop’s IOWA client software development kit provided significant cost-savings by allowing us to fast-track our development process without needing to develop this expertise in-house,” says Taïsei Miura, President of BH Technologies.
