Democritus University of Thrace
Democritus University of Thrace The first "smart" university campus in Greece!
Democritus University of Thrace
The first Smart University campus in Greece, using Narrow-Band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology.
The need
Creating a better world is a steadfast aim of Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH). COSMOTE has succeeded in turning that aim into action, through the innovative solutions and technology it implemented on the DUTH campus!

More specifically, COSMOTE created a pilot programme for the first smart technology on the Xanthi university campus, using innovative Narrow-Band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology.
The solutions
Air Quality Monitoring
Installation of a special for air quality measurement sensor, which measures temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and various gasses and microparticles in real time. At the same time, it provides the opportunity to design and undertake appropriate actions to decrease atmospheric pollution.
Smart Fuel Tank Management
Installation of a special heating oil reserve measurement device, which will help avoid overconsumption, avert fuel theft, and assess invoices. Τhis application is based on the solution provided by the Greek company Fuelics and is being implemented in cooperation with Ericsson.
Water Quality Measurement
Ensuring drinking water quality for students on campus, in cooperation with the Wings company (Greece).
Smart Lighting
Utilization of NB-IoT technology that helps adapt lighting brightness levels, depending on the season and time of day, significantly decreases energy consumption.
The pilot project was implemented with the contribution of the hub:raum incubator of Deutsche Telekom.
The benefits
Device interconnection
NB-IoT technology allows the interconnection of devices such as sensors, cars, robots, etc. more easily and at a reduced cost, as no special equipment is required.
NB-IoT significantly outperforms other IoT technologies with regards to quality and safety, as data transmission is carried out through a mobile telephony network, which allows for better coverage in indoors.
“We welcome our collaboration with COSMOTE for the development of a “smart university campus” at the premises of the Democritus University of Thrace, as the beginning of a long-term and fruitful relationship. Here, in DUTH, we believe that the current collaboration strengthens our research profile and our leading presence in the region of Eastern Macedonia & Thrace, making our University one of the leading research organizations in Northern Greece"
