Ooredoo announced the new Ooredoo Smart Waste Management solution to optimize waste collection, especially in Qatar's rapidly-urbanizing areas.

Previously, Qatar's organizations faced challenges with their waste management including knowing which bins were full and had to be collected, but with Ooredoo's New Smart Waste Management Solution, organizations can optimize collection routes and schedules; and to flag any misuse or complaints about the bins.

Part of Ooredoo's expanding portfolio of Internet of Things services and solutions, Smart Waste Management is a cloud-based solution that provides complete visual visibility on bins. Real-time dashboard reports cover bin location, temperature, and fill-level.

As a result, Qatar's organizations can optimize their bin type and location, waste collection routes and costs, and also enhance customer services and people's daily lives. Waste management organizations can also receive email or SMS alerts in case of any tampering.

Ooredoo expects strong demand from the government, construction, healthcare, waste management, recycling, and environmental sectors.

Smart Waste Management is an end-to-end solution running on the Ooredoo Internet of Things (IoT) platform. The solution combines sensors on bins or recycling cages, mobile Internet of Things connectivity, an application Web portal, and 24/7 support services. Data is hosted securely in-country on Ooredoo's industry-leading, Tier 3-certified Qatar Data Centre.

Also, Ooredoo announced it has extended its consumer retail network with the opening of a new shop at Msheireb Metro Station, the main station of Doha Metro.

The new shop is Ooredoo's first at a metro station and offers one of its high-tech self-service machines which has been installed as part of a planned roll-out of SSMs at metro stations in Doha.
