Utility companies for water, electricity, gas and heating are being challenged to meet greater public demand, increase efficiency and provide high quality services across dense urban or remote rural areas. Therefore, utilities stand at the forefront of digital transformation and a global ICT strategy of adopting IoT to build tomorrow’s new smart grid and profit from internet-based solutions.read more
Reduces network outages and quickens response through meter and grid monitoring and analytics. Integrates renewable energy management systems and storage from resources such as solar photovoltaic systems, fuel cells, and wind turbines.
Improves utility efficiency with AMI (Advanced Meter Infrastructure) based on LoRaWAN®. Beyond automated reading, improves water network management and reduces the non-revenue water with leak detection. Reduces energy bill in cost of water with water flow and pressure monitoring and control of pumping systems for the water supply.
Helps utilities in the LNG and LPG industry improve their billing accuracy and develop new service models for remote meter readings. Provides near real-time data for gas usage and alarms. Remotely measures gas flow rates and pressure in gas pipe networks. Remotely shuts off valves for subscription management and for risk control in case of alert.
Facilitates cost allocation and improves the overall distribution efficiency by measuring real consumption. Helps facilities and utilities improve their customer service through better energy consumption monitoring.
