Olameter’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform, eSIM, and data management expertise enables Utilities to select metering equipment without relying on that vendor’s proprietary signaling.
Our embedded eSIM connectivity enables the Utility’s devices to switch between wireless carriers, at any time, in pursuit of improved signal strength. Sensors, actuators, and devices on the grid are programmed to choose both the carrier and the frequency that provides the best signal quality at that particular place and time.
Some equipment vendors want to lock Utilities into their proprietary signaling platforms. However, such systems are not only prone to congestion and interference during peak periods, but are also at variance with the “Smart City” vision as scalability is onerous and can drive OPEX to undesirable levels.
Olameter recognizes this shortfall. With our IoT platform, Utilities can leverage out-of-the-box, multi-networked coverage at a fraction of the current cost.
Our IoT platform creates additional value in the following areas:
- Post Deployment Efficiency (Cost and Time Savings): the ability to reset eSIMS “over the air” on the Utility’s behalf (no truck rolls)
- Future-Proofed: the ability to swap carriers protects against regulation and / or pricing changes as well as coming network sunsets
- Multi-Networked Coverage: the ability to dynamically select the carrier with the best coverage at the lowest cost
- Reduced Human Errors: the ability to provide each IoT device with the same hardware and SIM combination, enabling adaptability across any network area or deployment environment
