Authored and published by Ericsson in September 2022, this paper highlights the value of cellular IoT connectivity in smart buildings. Collaborating with Kiona, a prominent proptech company, Ericsson and Arthur D. Little conducted a use case study on energy and resource efficiency optimization. Cellular IoT ensures secure, widespread coverage for seamless sensor data transmission. Kiona achieved significant benefits, including a 10% reduction in energy costs and a 9% decrease in CO2 emissions, totaling around €158,000 annual value gain. The study underscores the substantial financial advantages of cellular IoT for building energy management.
