The first version of the inteliLIGHT®’s prototype streetlight controller adapted for NB-IoT was presented and tested during hub:raum meeting in Kraków, Poland.

Deutsche Telekom’s business accelerator and incubator has invited inteliLIGHT® to develop compatible streetlight controllers for the new carrier grade communication technology for GSM operators, NB-IoT.

As part of the selection process that began at hub:raum Prototyping Kick-Off Meeting in Berlin, Flashnet was among the companies appointed to prove the functionality of an NB-IoT streetlight control solution.

Focused on supporting innovative businesses from southern and central Europe, the hub:raum Incubator, backed by Deutsche Telekom Group, connects startups with the corporate power of the world’s leading integrated telecommunications companies. The event started with 24 technology companies from Europe, US and China that needed to present their NB-IoT products. This time in Krakow, the meeting was intended to give a status update on the progress of development, and prove functionality of the applications presented earlier this year in Berlin.

The inteliLIGHT® prototype presented at hub:raum Incubator in Krakow, still under development, is a functional street lighting controller that is ready to use with the new NB-IoT communications. Besides street lighting control, applications like smart metering, smart parking and a diversity of wearable devices were among the most notable presented during the event.

NB-IoT is a narrowband radio technology specially designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) and already adopted by Deutsche Telekom, Huawei and U-Blox. It connects devices more simply and efficiently on already established mobile networks, and handles small amounts of infrequent 2way data, securely and reliably. Special focus of this standard is on very low power consumption, excellent penetration coverage and lower component costs, deployed in GSM and LTE regulated frequencies.

The next steps are further testing and developing the NB-IoT solutions, as the selected prototypes will be showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, in February 2017.
