MatchX GmbH, the end-to-end LPWAN solution provider from Berlin, announced today that they have partnered with Citiesense, a data management platform based in New York City, to roll out a joint solution for tracking usage and improving waste management strategies in New York City. The project is scheduled to pilot in Business Improvement Districts and eventually scale to other regions.
“LPWAN is the most energy efficient and reliable technology for wireless transmissions in smart cities,” said Xin Hu, CEO of MatchX. “This joint partnership will function as the model for future smart city integrations.”
Citiesense is based out of New York City and builds data management platforms with map-based features that help communities such as business improvement districts advance the neighborhood improvement process. This is possible by establishing a software hub for managing neighborhood data about properties, streetscapes and assets in public spaces. Citiesense is the newest of many partners to work with MatchX for smart city projects and this collaboration seeks to tackle a very relevant problem in modern cities.
“We are excited to introduce LPWAN technology in our New York City projects,” said Starling Childs, CEO of Citiesense. "Data has the potential to massively improve efficiency and reduce our environmental impact around the globe. These devices hold the key to successful smart city implementation through intelligent use of public data."
This pilot project will leverage the MXProtocol, an IoT Smart City Standard developed by the MXC Foundation, to improve the reliability and efficiency of wireless data transmissions. MXC is a Berlin non-profit focused on the development and widespread implementation of a global smart city standard.
MatchX provides a revolutionary breakthrough to the IoT industry and the world's data needs, an end-to-end network solution that ensures increased data efficiency whilst reducing energy consumption and significantly reducing costs. MatchX hardware operates on the LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) technology, which can connect sensors over long distances, while offering optimal battery life and requiring minimal infrastructure.
