In an era where billions of objects can be integrated within an information network new solutions are required to allow interaction

A real smart service is a service managed in an efficient way. Being ‘smart’ indicates the building or premises dispose of wireless –and wired– infrastructures and the associated devices and sensors that allow the building to ‘think’ and act all by itself, optimising its performance and characteristics for the usage it is intended for. These infrastructures are Internet of Things (IoT) based; a network where an internet is used to connect countless devices and objects or ‘things’.

IoT is expected to rapidly increase to enhance our daily world with ‘smart’ and autonomous environments. Cellnex operates IoT networks, deployed either at a local or national level, in order to offer smart services to its clients.

The benefits

Cellnex guarantee for site management. We operate a cellular data network in Spain & Portugal specifically dedicated to the Internet of Things (we support the deployment of services in peer networks in other countries).

We meet the four critical points required in an IoT solution: Low power + Long range + Low traffic + Low cost.

Based on collaborative cells design and random transmission frequencies.

SmartConnectivity , SmartBrain, SmartSolutions.

The transversal service offered by Cellnex optimises resources and efficiency in all management environments.

For a venue to be smart it requires the deployment of many types of sensors and actuators, devices and controllers as well as the infrastructure to connect all this. The sensors deployed will collect different types of data based on the type of sensor: temperature or humidity sensors, counters, level sensors, status sensors, etc.

 
The collected information is then exchanged through an IoT network where all sensors are connected and can interact ones with each other’s thanks to an appropriate control and analytics’ central system.

A network expected to connect thousands or millions of objects, often spread in remote areas and in difficult locations, and devoted to transport small pieces of information but on a regular basis –when an event happens– have to be specific. The so called Low Power Wide Area networks (LPWA) have been deployed to that purpose.

 
Cellnex manages various types of LPWA networks. Acting as infrastructure provider for SIGFOX in Spain and Portugal, also in Switzerland in collaboration with Heliot and rolling out LORA networks for private networks in Spain and Italy, the United Kingdom and Ireland through an agreement with Everynet.

Once the sensors and network are in place, the true value generation relies on securely collecting and processing large amounts of data from different sources in real time, to make decisions. Cellnex SmartBrain platform provides real-time reliable information for decision-making, co-creation of solutions designed around people and things and is able to create tangible and measurable results.

 
All, with the objective to help optimizing our client’s day-to-day processes in combination with their existing systems and solutions.

IoT networks, deployed through Cellnex’s extensive infrastructure network, enable a wide variety of solutions and services to be implemented, while providing information in real time and remotely to help manage them. These principally include urban services for comprehensive water management (references: Valencia, Burjasot, La Pobla de Farnals and L’Hospitalet in Spain); car park management (references: Barcelona, Torrent and Alzira in Spain; Elis University in Italy; Edenderry in Ireland); waste collection (references: Burjasot, La Pobla de Farnals and Reus in Spain); and comprehensive service management (references: the City Os platform in Barcelona, Connecta in Valencia and Smart Eivissa in Spain).

 
Also services to industry for tracking or monitoring assets throughout their value chain (references: Correos and ServiCaixa in Spain) and services to manage social housing, for monitoring and improving the comfort and energy efficiency of such homes, specially designed for groups at risk of exclusion (references: Barcelona, Bilbao and Vitoria in Spain).

This collaboration is a clear example of how synergies between the business and social sector can be generated. We need companies like Cellnex that provide knowledge and solutions to allow social organizations to move forward in the process of digital transformation and work in a more efficient and innovative way. The study has provided some very useful data allowing social entities to better manage housing while better serving people.
