Key criterias for the choice of IoT solution in this industry
- Data security and fraud prevention
- Easy Plug & Play installation
- Streamlined logistics and processes due to high volumes of meters
- No site revisits
- Reliability and quality
- Low total cost of ownership (investment and maintenance)
- Future proof solution with long lifetime
The benefits with a cellular IoT solution
- Proven technology
- The utilization of existing infrastructure, no investment or maintenance cost and/or responsibility
- Streamline costs (terminal and communication needs) – meter reading only or hub/gateway solution.
A cellular solution enables higher flexility as a gateway possibility for smart home solutions easily can be added to existing infrastructure.
- Inbuilt redundancy if the solution is built on a roaming solution. The solution will increase redundancy further if it also includes multiple technologies like GPRS, SMS, 2G/3G and LTE.
- Possibility to utilize gateway solutions for smart home applications and add-on services
- Possibility to change communication suppliers without physical site visits via embedded SIM
- Based on international standards and possible to use around the globe
