Barcelona, 24th February, 2019 - Quectel Wireless Solutions, the leading global supplier of wireless modules, and Evreka have jointly demonstrated the Next Generation of Waste Management Solution based on Quectel NB-IoT module BC95-G at the 8th GSMA Mobile IoT Summit held on February 24 in Barcelona. The showcase has proved that M-IoT can play an essential role in managing cities smartly and NB-IoT is becoming a vital element and pillar of the Smart Cities.
Evreka offers a transformative and smart alternative to traditional waste collection services. Evreka's solution optimizes collection routes, pick-up frequencies and vehicle loads which, according to Everka, enables 55% cost saving.
Quectel's modules have a centric role in all Evreka's products as they are deployed as Communication Cores to send raw data to the backend software in the cloud. The modules ensure a high level of resilience across a range of harsh conditions that are typical for such environments.
Based on HiSilicon Boudica 150 chipset, BC95-G NB-IoT module is designed for global markets and supports multiple frequency bands of B1/B3/B5/B8/B20/B28 with extremely low power consumption. The certified module is compliant with 3GPP R14 specifications, and offers optimized performance in positioning, mobility, power consumption, data rate as well as security.
BC95-G is designed with an ultra-compact 23.6mm × 19.9mm × 2.2mm profile, and is pin to pin compatible with Quectel's NB-IoT BC95 module and GSM/GPRS M95 module, which allows for smooth migration and upgrading with minimal cost and development time. Featuring compact form factor, ultra-low power consumption and extended temperature range makes BC95-G an ideal choice for a wide range of IoT applications, such as smart metering, bike sharing, smart parking, smart city, security and asset tracking, home appliances, agricultural and environmental monitoring.
Quectel continuously invests on R&D and develops and introduces new modules at the speed and time interval that have never been seen in the module industry.
Quectel's extensive supports to OEM device makers and their ODM partners created a momentum of growth in the IoT industry, as scale up is largely due to the ability and agility of supporting the customers in a very cost-effective manner. This enables them to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). This phenomenal positive feedback fuels and accelerates advancement of the entire IoT ecosystem since affordability is key success factor in massive IoT deployment.
"Quectel has been heavily investing in promoting NB-IoT alongside and shoulder to shoulder with giant MNOs across the globe, as we strongly believe that 3GPP based IoT would dominate the future of LPWA connectivity," said Mr. Norbet Muher, Head of Global Sales at Quectel Wireless Solutions. "Quectel is keen to continue its collaboration with companies like Evreka to improve quality of life for the citizens of the plant earth."
