Powered by Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) IoT Accelerator, Telenor Connexion will provide global connectivity to Wayout’s sustainable micro-factories starting inEast Africa and expanding into the Middle East, AsiaPacific and other markets in 2021.Wayouthas engineered plug-and-play micro-factories for local production of clean, filtered water, with a minimal eco footprint. Powered by solar panels, the micro-factories offer an advanced waterpurification system.
According to the United Nations, 3 in 10 people lack access to safely managed drinking water services.
Wayout’s local solution eliminatesthe unnecessary logistics of bottling and transporting pre-packaged glass or plastic bottles. Each module is fully automated andcan filter 70,000 liters of water,remove up to eight tons of CO₂ and up to 200,000 plastic bottles every month. The micro-factories are managed by a smartphone application tomanage operations, monitor performance, and launch autocleaning.
Wayout’s local operations depend onreliableglobal connectivity.Powered by Ericsson IoT Accelerator, Telenor Connexion delivers the cellular IoT connectivity management services, SIM cards and all necessary agreements with local operators to provide truly global service.Ericsson IoT Accelerator is a global IoTplatform, enabling cost-efficient IoT connectivity management and operations for any enterprise of any scale, using the secure, scalable and standardized worldwide mobile network infrastructure.
Ulf Stenerhag, CEO Wayout says:”Perfect drinking water should be a human right. Our idea is to make access easy and reliable. By leveraging spearpoint technology and robust engineering, our connected sustainable micro-factories enable infrastructure solutions and business opportunities for providing perfect drinking water locally, whilst reducing the environmental impact globally. We want to let it flow.”
Mats Lundquist, CEO, Telenor Connexion says, “Telenor Connexion is proud to provide global connectivity toWayout.They arean innovative company that values and prioritize sustainability and is making an impact.”
Kiva Allgood, Head of IoT, Ericsson, says, “Our technology can help solve global challenges and accelerate sustainability. Together with Telenor Connexion and Wayout,we are using our global IoT platformto deliver business and societal value and contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.”
