Savings with Teleena’s hybrid solution

Mic-O-Data was one of the first customers that signed up for using the new hybrid solution. For their waste container project for the Municipality of Den Bosch great savings in both the use of battery and deployment of garbage trucks will be achieved. The solution also supports Mic-O-Data’s new commercial model “pay per waste dump”. CEO of Mic-O-Data Tim Blömer: “By using the flexible solution of Teleena we expect to have a long term solution for waste management for Cities whereas the end-user pays for disposing their garbage by using a card that opens up the waste bin. By adding LoRa communication to the in-built module it is also an eco-friendly solution whilst batteries can be used much longer.”
