We have entered the age of the smart city. The Internet of Things (IoT) has become the norm, and urban areas are increasingly using new telemetry technologies to remotely and securely manage public assets. Utility companies are no exception. As water management systems age, and companies prepare to update their infrastructures, many have discovered the advantages of upgrading to long-range remote meter systems, such as Sigfox’s global IoT network. By connecting their water meters over Sigfox’s network, utility companies around the world have eliminated the need for onsite meter readings, saving time and resources and even improving customer satisfaction.
