Written by Thilina Ambagahawatta.

A range of IoT products developed at the Dialog-University of Moratuwa mobile communications lab won the coveted ‘Industrial IoT Initiative of the Year’ award at the 7th annual Global Telecoms Awards (GLOTEL Awards) held in London in November 2019.

 The winning entry is a result of a 4-way partnership between Dialog, the University of Moratuwa, Axiata Digital Labs (ADL) and Lanka Electricity Company (LECO). As the award signifies, the partnership has demonstrated that home-grown technology can make a global impact.

The end-to-end IoT systems experience gained throughout this development process has also enabled the Department of Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering to introduce two new course modules for its undergraduates, as well as the Dialog-UoM lab to support several final year projects.
