We're looking forward to the 2018 fall edition of Smart Cities Connect Conference & Expo in October in Tampa, Florida! Bigbelly takes the stage alongside Nokia and T-Mobile on day one (10/23) to discuss the Convergence of 5G and Smart Cities. Join us for the conversation as we explore the how, where, and role of public right-of-way infrastructure for Information & Communications Technology (ICT) networks.
Bigbelly is returning to Barcelona for the 2018 edition of the IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) from October 16-18. This industry leading industrial internet event, organized by Fira de Barcelona, will bring together hundreds of global IoT leaders to discuss the latest trends, applications, and impacts of the industrial internet.
As published in the industry publication TelecomNewsroom, read on for an interview with Bigbelly's SVP of Information and Communications Technology, Alex Gamota. This interview was held shortly before the NEDAS NYC Summit in September where Alex participated on a panel to discuss the impact and role of multi-purpose infrastructure in the small cell market evolution.

Bigbelly had the pleasure of spending a day alongside telecom industry leaders at the Northeast DAS & Small Cell Association's NYC Summit in New York City's Time Square. Our SVP of the Information and Communications Technologies division, Alex Gamota, participated as a panelist in a session titled "A Market Evolution: Building out the U.S. Infrastructure to Meet Tomorrow's Demands" (read more about it here).
Bigbelly’s Information & Communication Technology group is excited to take part in the upcoming Northeast DAS & Small Cell Association's NYC Summit on September 6, 2018.
The Municipality of Södertälje, Sweden produced a fun summer-themed video featuring their forward-looking waste coordinator, Tomas. This city located ~20 miles outside of Stockholm uses the Bigbelly system to reduce litter in their public spaces and to offer Wi-Fi hotspot service to their constituents enjoying the spaces.
As reported by ABC Channel 7: Beachgoers in one Long Island town can expect to see less garbage and a lot more people on their cell phones. Until now, cell service on South Jamesport and Iron Pier beaches in Riverhead has been spotty at best. Now, new trash compactors made by Bigbelly will be installed. These solar-powered compactors will have a antenna to supply cell service for people nearby, and the garbage cans will notify sanitation when they need to be emptied.
As reported in the Riverhead News-Review, a beachfront New York community is exploring what's possible with Bigbelly's multi-purpose platform: Smart Waste and Small Cell. Read on for more:
Riverhead Town will be trying out new smart trash compactors meant to reduce trash woes and also offer Wi-Fi and cell phone connection for beachgoers at South Jamesport Beach and Iron Pier Beach. The solar-powered receptacles will be installed [...] through a partnership between Bigbelly, a company that manufactures smart waste and recycling bins designed for cities, and Verizon. A cell antenna is attached to each compactor.
"Trash bin Wi-Fi" - It may sound like a fictional invention from a sci-fi movie... but it's here today.
Trash is, and always has been, a core service that needs to be delivered to a community, retailer, or campus. Bigbelly modernizes this core service delivery by providing smart, compacting, solar-powered stations that hold more and optimize waste management practices and routine across the world. The connected system communicates over cellular networks to report its real-time status into a centralized software which sends notifications and logs data for analysis and reporting.
The Bigbelly Smart Waste & Recycling System goes beyond data-driven waste management. We are excited to highlight the City of Louisville, Kentucky and applaud this community for leveraging required core infrastructure primarily used for public space to deliver more value to its citizens by way of Public Space Wi-Fi service hosted in their Bigbelly system.
