Smart meter IoT solutions for utilities
Smart meter solutions save the utilities industry massive amounts of resources, as well as enabling better operational efficiency. We help utilities companies plan, test, roll out, and manage millions of SIM cards in smart meters around the globe.
Utilities need “set it and forget it” IoT solutions in the field – smart meters that will operate safely, efficiently and reliably over time. With over 10 years in the AMR smart meter market, we offer our partners a proven IoT track record and future proof solutions.
Low-cost plug-and-play smart meter installation
Smart meters are often located in remote areas and extreme conditions. With a lifespan of up to 20 years, smart meters must endure environmental impact such as temperature, humidity and corrosion. To keep costs low, we create solutions that are easy to install, and durable enough to minimise costly revisits.
Efficient and future proof IoT devices
Smart meters must be adaptable to new technologies and requirements over their entire lifespan. We provide IoT solutions that can integrate legacy technology, while staying flexible to the future.
To reduce the cost of powering all of those, smart meters must be as efficient as possible. The smart meters must supply the energy needed for the communication module.
High data security and fraud prevention.
Security is always a high priority. In addition to protecting customer data be protected, utilities need protection against meter tampering and energy theft. Our smart meter solutions are designed to protect against unwanted access to connected assets, and to respond quickly when threats are detected.
Reliable and robust cellular IoT networks
Cellular technology is the most common connectivity solution for smart meter deployments. A reliable technology, with well established international standards, cellular technology uses existing infrastructure, which means there are no new investment or maintenance cost involved.
Utilities can buy as-a-service communication infrastructure a cellular communications operator. Utilities also have the flexibility to change communication suppliers in the future, with no need to change SIM cards or visit the meters.
To increase data communication speed, our smart meter SIMs are be able to roam between multiple cellular networks in the same location, and incorporate multiple technologies, such as GPRS, SMS, 2G/3G and LTE.
Streamline costs by reducing terminal and communication needs with meter reading only or hub/gateway solution.
An easier path to smart home solutions
Smart meters for residential properties can easily can be added to existing cellular infrastructure. The direct communication link from utility to household enables new revenue streams such as smart home automation.
