Find out how local authorities are improving resource management with LoRaWAN®

Radio technologies offer numerous possibilities for improving water and energy supply networks by enabling meter and sensor data to be transmitted over long distances with low energy consumption, as enabled by LPWAN technologies, of which LoRaWAN® is one. These technologies have made it easier to manage resources sustainably and responsibly. They also make it possible to monitor and maintain the network more efficiently. 

 

MEET THE CHALLENGE OF RESOURCE MANAGEMENT WITH ADVANCED LORA® TECHNOLOGY. 

  • Real-time view of the network

    LoRa® technology enables precise and regular monitoring of water and energy consumption. It helps to detect leaks, reduce waste and to improve supply network efficiency.   

  • Wide-area network

    Thanks to its long-range performance at a lower cost, LoRaWAN® is the ideal solution for local authorities wishing to optimize their water and energy management, simultaneously experimenting with smart city applications (such as smart lighting, waste collection optimization, etc.). 

  • Seamless interoperability

    The LoRaWAN® protocol is an open standard, maintained and developed by the LoRa Alliance® with a great power of scalability. LoRa® technology typically operates in the unlicensed spectrum, which makes it highly accessible. 

  • Bidirectional communication

    Meters equipped with LoRaWAN® technology transmit useful data to the utility's IT system and can also act on instructions sent by the system. 

    This specificity enables  a wide variety of uses for both smart metering and smart city. 

MEANS THEY'RE STARTING WITH SMART METERING. LORAWAN® IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR LPWAN PROTOCOLS IN SMART CITY PROJECTS, IT MAKES IOT NETWORK DEPLOYMENT ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE.

Face smart meterinG challenges with loraWAN®

LoRaWAN® technology can be relevant for all usual smart metering challenges, but its specific features can make all the difference when it comes to interacting with meters from the management office. 

  • Billing resources (water & ernegy)
    LoRaWAN® enables automatic metering data transmission several times a day through an Automatic Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and allows utilities to bill on actual measures.  
  • Advanced anomaly detection and waste reduction 
    Leakage alarms implemented inside smart meters are sent automatically to the utility's monitoring software thanks to LoRaWAN® connectivity. Other thresholds like low battery or reverse flows are also useful information that are helping to improve resources savings.
     
  • Remote meters reconfiguration, clock synchronization 
    Remotely reset alarms as soon as any water network-related issues are rectified, to ensure optimal performance. Maintain precise clock synchronization between meters and the network for seamless operations and effective network management. 
     
  • Network monitoring 
    Improve your network efficiency with automatic data transmission such as interferences, pressure, or leakage alarms. All data collected will feed your network monitoring software.

Not sure how to create a digital network?

A sustainable IoT communications network should enable utilities and cities to seamlessly integrate new devices and work with existing ones, while improving Return on Investment (ROI). The possibility of creating new services or developing new applications should not generate the creation of an additional IoT network with exorbitant costs.

At Diehl Metering, IoT (Internet of Things) multiconnectivity solutions enable all your existing and future devices, platforms and software to exchange and interpret data within a single, interoperable IoT network. Thanks to our multiconnectivity IZAR IoT Gateways Compact and Premium, you connect smart meters and other smart devices with advanced software that gathers and harness data in a single interoperable communications network.
