NTT launches IoT for Sustainability offering
NTT noted its IoT Services for Sustainability stack also incorporates a secure IT/OT integration and end-to-end support
Global technology and business solutions provider NTT announced the launch of its IoT Services for Sustainability offering.
In a release, NTT said that the new end-to-end stack of solutions will help businesses advance progress against global sustainability initiatives and make data-driven decisions to reduce their carbon footprint through the use of IoT connectivity.
NTT’s new solutions include:
-OCR Meter Reading: An optical-based meter reader to provide near real-time data from any type of meter including water, electricity, and gas. The meter can also be used to read any type of gauge including pressure and temperature, according to the company.
-Water Leak Management: Provides real-time, IoT-enabled protection against water damage for smart spaces projects.
-Predictive Maintenance: Collects data from sensors to create models that predict when events of interest might occur, including potential downtime, accidents or when something might need to be replaced.
-Environmental Monitoring: Uses sensors to identify the presence of pollutants in the air and water as well as tracking temperature and humidity.
NTT’s IoT Services for Sustainability stack also incorporates a secure IT/OT integration and end-to-end support, which provides benefits including energy cost savings and faster reduction in emissions. The stack of solutions is also supported by NTT’s new LoRaWAN network, and its catalog of sensors to measure, monitor and collect data to drive sustainability objectives.
“IoT technologies are an essential tool in the global fight against climate change,” said Jeff Merritt, head of urban transformation at the World Economic Forum. “We know what actions are needed to build a more sustainable future and have a robust suite of technologies available to help deliver this impact. As the world looks to accelerate the implementation of these solutions, organizations like NTT will have a critical role to play in helping companies and governments capitalize on this opportunity.”
“Almost two-thirds of CEOs say they’re aligning business strategies to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Yet only 2 out of 5 businesses have the solutions needed to meet the organization’s immediate objectives, said Devin Yaung, SVP of Group Enterprise IoT Products and Services at NTT. “Therefore, it is more critical than ever to prioritize and deliver sustainability solutions for our enterprise customers. Our new stack of solutions will help organizations reach their sustainability goals and improve operations across their business, whether it is reducing waste from manufacturing defects or understanding the carbon footprint of their supply chain. The use of IoT will empower businesses to make decisions in real-time, streamlining processes and transforming the overall sustainability of their business.”
