A platform deployed in the public right-of-way that delivers much more than smart waste & recycling. In addition to modernizing a core city service, it is optimal for hosting additional technologies. It is easy to access and can hide technology in plain sight.
Communities and solution providers share the challenge of how and where to deploy Smart City solutions and communications infrastructure in the public right-of-way without additional clutter or negative aesthetic impact. Consider the possibilities of how your community can leverage the Bigbelly platform to transform not only core waste and recycling service but also leverage the multi-purpose platform add more value to the people across your city, campus, or organization.
Smart Waste & Recycling
The core waste & recycling system includes smart stations on the street which communicate their status into an cloud-connected software to drive up to 80% collection reduction and cleaner spaces.
A beacon network can be deployed within a smart waste & recycling fleet to deliver location-based messages and notifications, such as neighborhood alerts, PSAs, or local business promotions.
The smart station form factor doubles as a sealed location to conceal a Wi-Fi hotspot in the public right-of-way. No plugs or grid power are required for instant Internet access with up to 200′ signal radius.
Small Cell & Wireless Equipment
Leverage the Bigbelly platform as a multi-purpose infrastructure in dense urban areas. It can host small cell /wireless equipment in an easy to access sidewalk location while being hidden in plain sight.
Placed discretely inside smart waste stations, urban intelligence sensor networks can be deployed exactly where the people are to capture data from footfall and noise to pollution levels, etc.
First Responder Networks
Consider the platform extended to be a cabinet-like hosting location for essential city safety networking equipment right on the street, such as separate emergency broadcast systems.
