One of our partners recently had a win by providing a Narrowband IoT Solution for people counting.
Customer Challenge

A local council was looking to monitor areas around the city to see which walking routes were used most frequently, to assist with prioritising the upgrading of routes and deciding where best to place cafés and coffee shops.

Business Opportunity

An estate of NB-IoT SIMs to enable the sensors, which were positioned along popular walking routes.

Product and Services Solution

A number of NB-IoT SIMs were deployed in their sensors that would trigger each time someone went through a gate on the walking routes.

Result

This would help the local council to improve and develop their countryside to have wonderful views, the best paths and offer more business opportunities. By counting people using sensors and IoT Solutions, the local council were able to prioritise path upgrading effectively and develop the area for visitors and local residents.
