LOS ANGELES, October 26, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- Taoglas®, a leading enabler of digital transformation through IoT, and Bigbelly, the world leader in smart waste and recycling, are today showcasing the Bigbelly Telebelly platform at Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles. Taoglas is currently – through its acquisition of Smartsensor Technologies – the exclusive distributor of Bigbelly’s smart waste and recycling in Australia and working closely with cellular carriers and cities to deploy Telebelly the multi-purpose waste and small cell solution.
"We are thrilled to showcase Bigbelly and the Telebelly solution at Mobile World Congress," says Leon Hayes, GM and Sr. VP of Taoglas Connected Smart Services Business Unit. "As a recognized brand in Asia Pacific for smart waste solutions, we look forward to exploring the opportunity to offer similar services in new markets combined with our smart city application platform, Taoglas Insights. Deploying Telebelly to North America opens a chapter to smart cities, where the critical city services of waste and communication infrastructure are combined to make cities smarter, cleaner, more efficient, and connected."
The Bigbelly Telebelly is a multipurpose Smart City Platform for deploying 4G and 5G small cells in public spaces. It can be configured to provide a variety of solutions for both public and private cellular networks and Wi-Fi infrastructure. This allows municipalities and cellular carriers to deploy communications infrastructure without additional clutter or negative aesthetic impact in dense areas.
The Telebelly platform is a fully customizable, technology agnostic, multipurpose hosting solution. The double station features a smart waste unit coupled with a telecom cabinet that conceals critical small cell radio, IOT and communications equipment. Combining the Telebelly with Taoglas Insights, a cloud hosted smart city services platform for city management, municipalities will have access to a dynamic asset management dashboard with real-time reporting and data visualization tools, predictive waste collection management and in-cabin routing. When combined with the power of the Bigbelly, it optimizes waste collection processes and can save cities up to 80% in waste collections and is used as a tool to monitor and reduce CO2 emissions.
"Smart waste stations are located where the people are, which is exactly where cell coverage is needed in dense urban areas. Communities around the world benefit from wireless applications that improve quality of life, public safety, and economic development. The innovative Telebelly solution keeps streets, sidewalks, and beaches clean and enabling robust wireless connectivity to the residents, businesses, and visitors," says Alexander Gamota, GM and Sr. VP of Bigbelly’s ICT Business Unit. "We’re excited to team up with Taoglas at Mobile World Congress and look forward to serving the growing need for aesthetically pleasing multi-purpose smart solutions in public spaces."
The Telebelly will be on display at Mobile World Congress at the Taoglas booth #1818. For more information, visit www.taoglas.com .
