T-Mobile Austria, a renowned mobile and fixed company in Austria, Ericsson, a Swedish telecommunications company, and Stanley Black & Decker, a leading producer of industrial tools and household hardware, reportedly announced a new collaborative effort to actively work for simplifying the worldwide deployment of Stanley’s connected services and equipment. An example of this partnership is already live in India, Stanley Earth’s NADI Smart Solar Pump. This project is allowing farmers in the country to grow their productivity and reduce costs while providing a better option to using a diesel-dependent water pump or inefficient power grid for irrigation. NADI Smart Solar Pump’s 5-horsepower model has the potential of offering 100,000 liters of water per day. This enables farmers to manage groundwater resources neatly and irrigate more than 5 acres of land in a year for better crop yields. All of this can be operated from their smartphones. This solar pump not only improves the livelihoods of farmers and their respective communities, but they also leave a positive impact on the environment due to energy and water. President of Stanley-X, Mike Keogh stated that the company embodies its sustainability mission to work for a good cause by launching this cutting-edge technology across rural areas where it would have a positive impact on regional farmers. The company leverages cellular IoT together with renewable energy for the expansion of workable regions for farms, conserve natural resources, simplify compliance to regulations, reduce dependency on fossil fuel resources of energy, and grow revenue opportunities for farmers. Stanley is proud to provide improvements to the living quality of farmers while enhancing environmental sustainability. CCO Business & Digitalization at T-Mobile Austria, Maria Zesch stated that Stanley Black & Decker shows what a creative company can gain by integrating its products with connectivity to have a sustainable and positive impact on the income and productivity of farmers. As an operator, the company is thrilled to help Stanley leverage the coverage and connectivity to meet the requirements of the regional industry and their project.
