Digita’s IoT network expands rapidly – reading of water meters is facilitated

Digita is investing heavily in the development of its IoT network. The goal of the company is to build a Finland-wide IoT network.

Expansion has been rapid – during this autumn alone, 50 new base stations were constructed across Finland, increasing indoor coverage in the largest cities by 40 percent. The investments will ensure better services for Digita’s IoT customers.

Digita’s IoT services offer a wide range of solutions to meet the needs of the real estate, logistics and infrastructure sectors, among others. Utilising LoRa technology, Digita’s IoT network enables, for example, the remote reading of water meters in basements.

The extensive investments will further improve the capabilities for supporting indoor IoT solutions. Digita’s network provides its customers with an inexpensive and user-friendly method to comply with the increasingly stringent requirements for energy efficiency. Digita’s network also accelerates the implementation of the Smart City and Smart Metering projects, which focus on eco-efficiency and quality-of-life improvements for the benefit of all of Finland.

“Thanks to the new investments, the coverage of Digita’s IoT network will expand further. During 2017, Digita plans to construct as many as 150 new base stations. The construction work will not be finished after that - by the end of 2018, we plan to have 400 base stations in commercial use. The newest base stations have been launched in the Helsinki metropolitan area as well as in Lahti, Tampere, Turku, Salo, Jyväskylä, Oulu and Rovaniemi”, explains Ari Kuukka, director of IoT services at Digita.

Higher requirements for energy-saving and cost-efficient technology and data transfer are the factors behind the growing demand for IoT services. Wireless communication between devices, systems and services must be fast and cost-efficient. Digita is a stable domestic operator that offers a complete infrastructure for the Internet of Things, i.e., IoT, as a service platform for its partners’ solutions.
