It is layered, starting from an array of coordinated smart meters, through communications and data collection, up to data management and software services for metering, billing, customer engagement, and network optimization. Smart water meters with Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies and advanced analytics have become the solution’s key focus.
The Smart Water Solution can be delivered as a managed service: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Smart Metering-as-a-Service (SMaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The software is hosted in a private or public Cloud.
Our Smart Water Solution address the most important challenges of modern water utilities:
What do water utilities gain from Iskraemeco Smart Water Solutions?
Better control over water utility network through:
Detect, locate and control water leakages, monitor water flow, and reduce NRW using a District Metered Areas (DMA) approach.
Efficient metering, precise calculation of water consumption and accurate billing for residential, commercial and industrial consumers.
Iskraemeco Smart Prepayment solution is designed for residential facilities to help control prepaid water consumption units. Water consumption is calculated, and consumers are charged for water use in advance. Functionalities: remote prepayment, meter reading, remote control.
|Water infrastructure upgrade in Kranj and neighbouring municipalities (Slovenia).|
This use case highlights Iskraemeco Smart Water Solutions, which were implemented in Kranj Water Utility to increase operational efficiency and improve data accuracy.
Water utility operations are complex and laborious, requiring extensive efforts in measurement, data collection and analyses by field personnel.
Deploying smart metering systems, upgrading outdated infrastructure, and replacing labor-intensive processes help water utilities stay responsive, lean, and resourceful, aiming at lower costs and timely response to critical issues.
Kranj Water Utility has implemented the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution to collect water consumption data faster and more efficiently.
We design different meter reading systems, customized to your requirements:
We offer a wide variety of residential, industrial & commercial (Bulk), pre-paid and submetering water meters, using different measuring technologies: single jet, multi-jet, volumetric, ultrasonic, Woltmann, electromagnetic and others.
All the water meters come with „add-on“ or „external“ communication modules. Technologies that are available: wM-BUS (OMS) 868MHz for Walk-by / Drive-by; wM-BUS 169MHz for fixed reading; LoRaWAN™; NB-IoT.
We provide a single-point management access to all your meters, using the same infrastructure for multi-utility devices. This reduces costs per metering point and increases overall efficiency, providing you with a comprehensive data flow that aggregates data from smart water meters as well as data management and analytics systems.
Iskraemeco is a giant in providing managed services. As water utilities increasingly evolve into subscription-based business models, our Smart Water solution is a perfect tool to fit this trend. We excel at water solutions as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), in more comprehensive service agreements also Smart Metering-as-a-Service (SMaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Hosting your software in a private or public cloud, we will provide utility’s with the tools and services they need to keep water flowing and keep billing and operations efficient and worry-free.
