Telia Company announced that it has secured the largest narrowband IoT contract in Norway yet.

The three-year agreement with waste disposal container tracking company StalkIT, covers 100,000 connected devices in Telia’s nationwide narrowband IoT network.

Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is a new communication technology that enables excellent coverage indoors, outdoors and in the ground. It is ideal for things that run on battery or only send data irregularly. NB-IoT is a cost-efficient way of connecting devices to existing mobile networks.

Telia Company recently inaugurated its nationwide NB-IoT network and has now closed the first commercial contract with waste disposal container tracking company StalkIT. It has developed a service that provides waste management operators with new and detailed knowledge regarding the location and status of their containers. The three-year contract enables StalkIT to connect 100,000 devices to Telia’s NB-IoT network. 

Jon Christian Hillestad, VP Enterprise, Telia Norway
We are proud to have a wide-ranging agreement with an entrepreneurial company with great ambitions. It is very exciting to see our pilot project from this winter going commercial with the potential to expand beyond the Norwegian borders.

Einar Aaland, Chief Product Officer, StalkIT
Our tracking service will provide them with a complete overview of where the containers are and what status they have, and the investment will provide quick returns because processes can be automated and waste can be reduced.
