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.
Olameter and Kamstrup – It’s Time to Know
Progressive water meter manufacturers, such as Kamstrup, recognize that IoT affords greater choice and flexibility when deploying new devices.
Kamstrup’s flowIQ® 2200 ultrasonic water meters feature integrated Acoustic Leak Detection (ALD), providing 24/7 monitoring of service connection and distribution line noise. Kamstrup’s ALD technology detects water leaks, triangulates the exact leak location for repair, and pinpoints other high-risk areas for proactive maintenance.
Olameter’s IoT platform lifts Kamstrup’s technology to the next level. Our IoT platform provides full transparency into your water distribution network through real-time data collection, allowing Utilities to handle customer inquiries efficiently, to ensure fair and accurate billing, and to improve overall data quality.
Moreover, smart devices on Olameter’s IoT platform can be leveraged as passive data-harvesting sensors. Our remote sensing and data capture capabilities provide actionable data, asset insight, and analytics for future IoT and Smart City applications.
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
