Together with Nokia, MCS has been nominated in the Sustainable Tech category and together with the partners in the Do IoT Fieldlab, MCS has been nominated in the SME project category.
The jury nominated MCS for developing an innovative Private LTE solution for The Ocean Cleanup and for enabling 5G testing and experimentation facilities at Robohouse and Tomatoworld. These Sustainable Tech and SME Project nominations recognise the innovative contributions MCS has made to these important projects.
The Computable Awards, one of the most prestigious IT awards in the Netherlands, recognise excellence and innovation in the IT sector. From the many entries, the independent expert jury selected 10 nominees. These nominations were chosen based on the distinctiveness of the product and supplier. MCS, Nokia and all partners of the Do IoT Fieldlab are proud to be among this exclusive group of nominees.
Using technology to rid the ocean of plastic
Nokia and MCS jointly deployed private wireless connectivity, networking equipment and analytics for The Ocean Cleanup in the North Pacific. This international non-profit project develops and scales up technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. In doing so, it contributes to combating climate change and minimising environmental impacts. More and larger systems will be implemented in the future to increase the impact.
As Nokia's distribution partner in the Benelux, MCS plays a vital role in distributing NDAC. Nokia DAC is a high-performance, end-to-end wireless private LTE (4G) network and edge computing platform. Its LTE connectivity, Nokia MX Industrial Edge (MXIE) and analytics will be used for various applications.
One example is high-end video connectivity via 4G technology. This will support The Ocean Cleanup's operations with navigation while collecting plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
5G contributes to sustainable food production
Together with partners in TU Delft's Do IoT Fieldlab, MCS is investigating how 5G can contribute to producing food sustainably and efficiently. Through innovative solutions, MCS is helping greenhouse horticulture to further innovate and digitise.
At Robohouse and Tomatoworld, applications include picking robots, sensors for insect detection and inspection rounds with drones. These automation processes can make a major contribution to making the horticultural sector more sustainable and solving labour shortages.
With this project, the Do IoT Fieldlab encourages innovation and economic growth and contributes to good digital connectivity.
