It is a layered, starting from an array of coordinated smart meters, through communications and data collection, up to data management and software services. Smart water meters with Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies and advanced analytics have become the solution’s key focus. Immediately being alerted leaks and having the knowledge to predict consumption patterns and optimize water resources remotely give operators the perfect suite of tools to keep water flowing.
What challenges are water utilities facing today that a smart city solution can help with?
Our Smart Water solution addresses utilities’ most bothersome challenges:
What utilities stand to gain from Smart Water?
What are the long-term benefits of a Smart Water solution?
As water utilities increasingly evolve into subscription-based business models, Smart Water solution can be delivered as managed service. These managed services can be Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), or in more comprehensive service agreements also Smart Metering-as-a-Service (SMaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The software is hosted in a private or public cloud.
Water sources, district metering areas (DMA), and I&C consumers and residential consumers are monitored and evaluated using a range of measuring technology: ultrasonic, electromagnetic and mechanical (multi-jet, positive displacement, Woltmann). All meters are equipped with intelligent communication modules (wM-Bus, LoRaWAN).
A robust platform for Billing, the Customer Portal, & the App integrates multiple information streams into a single, elegant solution. An extensive list of functions such as consumption overview, invoices review, payments and payment history, price lists, and additional services are available to end consumers.
The expandable monitoring platform helps control water leakages and reduce Non-Revenue Water (NRW) using a District Metered Areas (DMA) approach. The system consists of flow & pressure sensors, battery-powered data loggers, and a cloud-based software program.
Analytics focuses on performance-based data and statistical methods from billing and NRW management.
Managing massive rollouts requires a smooth flow of information between dispatchers and field technicians. Back-office software and a mobile app for the field staff cover the entire process, from work order creation to completion.
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.
