Swedish IoT operator Netmore has opened an online marketplace that gathers and presents turnkey offerings from international service developers, sensor manufacturers and platform developers.

Netmore’s nationwide LoRaWan supplies connectivity and guarantees coverage for large-scale projects.

At the time of launch, the IoT market has more than 30 ready-made IoT offerings in areas such as water, heating, parking, air quality and tracking. The applications presented have been developed by the more than 70 companies and organisations that are already connected to the marketplace.

These include:

  • H2OIoT: Water consumption and supervision; Reduce water consumption in properties by visualising water consumption down to the individual level. Reduces costs and increases resource efficiency.
  • Bintel Fill level measurement in Molok and UWS containers: Switch to demand-controlled emptying of waste by optimising emptying routes. Reduces costs and reduces climate impact.
  • Talkpool indoor air quality: Ensure the right air quality in, for example, schools and offices. Counteracts the spread of Covid-19.

Netmore offers and encourages established and new service developers, sensor manufacturers and other IoT players to present their offerings in the marketplace, and thereby strengthen their position in the emerging international IoT landscape, where more and more cities, municipalities, industries and property owners see the concrete benefits of digitisation.

The ongoing digitalisation journey that is taking place in municipalities, cities, industries and properties, among others, is judged to have potential for creating efficiency gains and competitive advantages in many application areas. Data collected with the help of IoT can already be used today to, for example, enable energy savings, reduce resource use and waste, track goods, and optimise and plan logistics chains.

Netmore brings together IoT players and make visible the opportunities that exist, so more companies, municipalities and organisations can improve their operations through digitisation.

“Digitisation within municipalities, larger companies and property owners is approaching an arms race phase,” said Eric Collinder, partner manager at Netmore. “More and more players are realising the concrete benefits created by smart IoT applications, and that these will soon be a prerequisite for the business,”

Large-scale investments in IoT presuppose a network infrastructure that enables a large geographical spread of connected devices in the form of meters and sensors. Netmore’s platform brings together validated service developers, sensor manufacturers and platform developers while, thanks to a coverage guarantee, it is ensured that large IoT projects are provided with the connectivity needed to achieve large scale.

“We are proud that Netmore’s nationwide network expansion opens doors to scale up many of the IoT projects that are already being tested successfully on a medium scale,” said Fredrik Skoglund, head of Netmore’s IoT network. “Our new marketplace will contribute to this.”

At launch this month, there are 71 affiliated companies, all of which supply hardware, or platforms to the international market.

“The marketplace means that we strengthen our position as a dedicated IoT operator and constitute a strategically important piece of the puzzle that has great potential to create growth in our nationwide networks,” said Ove Anebygd, CEO of Netmore Group. “We create a natural gathering place for all the very interesting players within IoT and look forward to seeing the concrete benefit that is created when the solutions are made visible to more actors.”
