Mainz, Germany, 29 March 2022 – Ahead of the Connected Germany event, HomeGrid Forum has certified its G.hn solution for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications as G.hn technology continues to bridge the gap between telecom-optimised systems and the demand for fast connectivity in industrial settings.
The certification of the GHN.SOM.PLC module, a powerful small form factor and retrofit solution from member company Teleconnect, ensures the high performance of IIoT and connected devices through MIMO-enabled powerline communications.
“Machine-to-machine communication and process automation require more than ever stable, robust and fast connectivity to operate and work efficiently, with no downtime.
The uptake in productivity, efficiency and safety need to strongly rely on agile control, self-healing capabilities and real time synchronisation of industrial devices, placing G.hn as core to manufacturers’ digital transformation,” says HomeGrid Forum president Livia Rosu. “This certification marks an exciting new milestone for G.hn IIoT use cases, including autonomous mobile robots, smart sensors, AR/VR, smart lifting, smart parking systems control, smart buildings entry-door access control, safety control and factory automation. G.hn technology modules are now embedded into smart manufacturing infrastructure networks to provide the resilience needed by highly performant industrial plants.”
G.hn works through existing wiring to provide low latency connectivity that is suitable for handling two-way, high bandwidth and real-time traffic, including environmental sensors and video surveillance. HomeGrid Forum has recently formed a new Task Force, co-chaired by Alexandre Schafer, head of sales, and Philipp Rietzsch, head of R&D, at Teleconnect, to drive G.hn innovation and deployments for IIoT applications.
Schafer says, “G.hn has significantly boosted industrial networks with adaptive data rates of up to 1.8 Gbps over different media, from powerline to telephone wiring and coax cables. It has also proven to be the most reliable backbone for visible light communications, such as Li-Fi. Now, the certification of GHN.SOM.PLC means that the industry can be confident in the module’s interoperability to other G.hn chipsets and devices.”
HomeGrid Forum G.hn testing ensures that commercially available solutions comply with ITU-T G.hn standards and the interoperability and performance requirements set out in the HomeGrid Forum Certification Test Plans.
Rietzsch emphasizes, “The certification is a significant milestone as there is now a verified G.hn solution for industrial environments that offers connectivity and robustness. With the newly formed Industrial IoT Task Force, this certification is just the start of new G.hn solutions portfolio that open exciting opportunities for industrial settings. Our mission is to help create a sustainable competitive advantage with most machines connected to improve efficiency and reduce cost.”

Casablanca, Paris. 30 March, 2022 – DabaDoc and Orange are launching DabaDoc consult, a brand new service allowing the African diaspora residing in Europe and the United States to instantly offer a video medical consultation to their relatives living in their country of origin.
The launch of the exclusive service comes in response to a concern shared by many emigrants: taking care of the health of their parents and loved ones living in their country of origin, by allowing them access to a video medical consultation wherever they are.
To do so, the DabaDoc and Orange link teams have jointly developed a simple and smooth process: the customer, from the diaspora, wishing to offer a DabaDoc Consult signs in to the Orange “Transfert Pays” (country transfer) platform, chooses the amount they wish for the consultation, and then pays for the service by bank card. The beneficiary of the DabaDoc Consult then instantly receives a code that they can use as payment for the video consultation on the platform.
Launched by DabaDoc in Morocco in March 2020 in the midst of the pandemic, video medical consultations were quickly adopted by both patients and doctors as a timely alternative to limit the spread of Covid-19. The health crisis played a catalytic role in the adoption of video consultations, which have subsequently become very popular in all specialisations for consultations that do not require the physical presence of the patient. Video consultations offer many benefits: they save time, are discrete and ensure confidentiality, and also provide access to one of the 10,000 healthcare providers listed on DabaDoc.com.
The new launch falls squarely in line with Orange’s strategy to put digital technology at the service of everyone’s health in Africa, a continent where there is still just one doctor per 1,000 inhabitants (source GSMA). Some 14 e-health services have already been developed by Orange and its partners in seven African countries (advice and remote monitoring of patients, request for home care, monitoring of child vaccinations, etc.).
DabaDoc and Orange signed a strategic partnership in June 2021 aimed at benefiting from Orange’s technological expertise and payment solutions to enable the development of digital solutions that quickly bring concrete benefits to patients and the entire African healthcare ecosystem.
Transfert Pays, the Orange website serving the African diaspora:
The Transfert Pays website allows the African diaspora to remotely purchase phone top ups for their families in most African countries.
Orange aims to develop Transfert Pays into a multi service portal dedicated to the African diaspora, in order to make it easier for the African diaspora to cover essential products and services for their families living in Africa, ranging from healthcare to telephone top ups.
Orange is present in 18 countries in Africa and the Middle East where it had 135 million customers on December 31, 2021. With €6,4 billion in turnover in 2021, Orange MEA is the Group’s main growth region. Orange Money, with its mobile based money transfer and financial services offer is available in 17 countries and has 60 million customers. Orange, a multi service operator, benchmark partner of the digital transformation, provides its expertise to support the development of new digital services in Africa and the Middle East.

30 March, 2022 – The solution developed by Sensoneo the global provider of smart waste management technologies makes remote access management to waste bins ready for the next decades. The solution does not require manual registration of containers, and it is powered by batteries. It brings extremely efficient energy management as every device guarantees 100.000 lid openings. New users can be added remotely, and they immediately get access to selected bins or stands. The solution uses NBIoT and/or Cat-M to transfer the data and it can be easily integrated into other information systems via API.
Public availability of waste bins does not always mean the bins are meant for everyone. However, locking bins in cages or cabinets is not always an option especially if the visual aspect is important for the customer. Sensoneo’s bin access management solution does not disturb the visual of the waste containers or their surroundings. The bin access management (BAM) solution by Sensoneo provides remote digital management of access to bins. Besides making sure that only authorised citizens can use the bins, the solution also facilitates the implementation of Pay-as-you-throw within apartment houses and high rise buildings.
“Complaints about “waste tourists” within housing estates areas who use the availability of containers to dump their waste have been very frequent. We want to make sure that our citizens pay only for the waste they generate, and that is why we initiated proper recording and tracking of containers’ usage,” says, Beniakova, the head of the dubnica’s environment department.
Control who accesses the waste containers
An electronic lock is mounted into the containers to ensure the opening of the lid by attaching a digital key chip or a card. Chip accesses are allocated remotely via an online platform, where an authorised employee updates them in real time. A household can gain access to multiple containers or stands within a single chip.
Sensoneo solution uses NBIoT and/or Cat-M network for data transfer. The solution can be easily integrated via API into current customers’ systems. Otherwise, customers are welcome to use the solution’s own platform.
Besides access management, the online platform also provides an overview of bins and stands openings. As a result, the city has accurate information on how many times in a selected period the household has opened the container and obtains a reliable basis for the potential deployment of PAYT.
Opportunity for bin distributors and collection companies
Remote digital management of access to bins also represents a great opportunity for collection companies, especially if they manage recyclables and valuable commodities. Access to selected containers can be limited to selected drivers and workers. As the platform offers an instant online overview of who and when accessed bins, collection companies can prevent potential fraud and misuse.
The solution’s features significantly increase the value of containers giving distributors the opportunity to gain a significant competitive advantage.
“The demand for a reliable solution for managing access to containers has been a very frequent request of our customers. Despite we considered the market as sufficient in terms of the offer, the insights clearly proved there is an opportunity for an easy-to-deploy versatile solution that would answer the question of the gradual shutdown of the GPRS networks,” explains the motivation for development Martin Basila, Sensoneo’s CEO.
The solution is primarily dedicated to semi underground bins; however, it can be easily customised to other types of bins and containers thanks to a variable mounting kit.
