To build their connected and interconnected society, Södertälje municipality have built a LoRaWAN network together with Telge Nät. LoRaWAN is short for low-power wide-area network, which is a wireless radio technology with bidirectional communication. The communication distance can stretch as long as 15 km in urban environments and even longer in rural communication setups.
The technology facilitates the communication between smart sensors, transmitting data into a SaaS environment. The complete solution enables the municipality to monitor waste volumes, map waste and material flows.
