Smart water refers to a network of smart water meters and intelligent infrastructure deployed as part of an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system. It provides continuous and historical data, while improving system intelligence, visibility, automation and control to help water utilities optimize their water network. Smart water metering systems are available for utilities of all types, regardless of population, location, city size or existing infrastructure.
Smart water metering systems are comprised of meters, endpoints, a data collection system and system management. Water meters measure water flow 24/7. The accompanying endpoints collect the flow data and securely transmit it to the data collection system at routine intervals. Within the smart water data collection system, utilities can monitor their network to identify leaks, address issues and bill customers more accurately.
Our smart water metering systems are designed to help utilities make every drop count. Below are a few leading reasons why utilities just like yours are making the switch to smart water systems.
Compared to other AMI systems, AMI without the infrastructure from Badger Meter is a leading choice for utilities because it does not require network infrastructure deployment and maintenance. Incorporating cellular network as a service (NaaS) allows utilities to leverage existing cellular networks, which are monitored, managed and maintained on their behalf, so utilities can remain focused on providing safe, clean drinking water.
Every utility has their own unique needs and challenges that must be carefully considered when deploying a smart water solution. We offer the widest range of metering solutions to ensure every utility finds their tailored system—whether that means mechanical or electronic meters, mobile automated meter reading (AMR) or AMI networks supporting a partial or full deployment.
Our smart water systems don’t just address the challenges a utility is currently facing. Our solutions are designed to address their future goals and objectives, too. Cellular AMI solutions provide future-proof technology that supports utility water systems now and for decades to come by enhancing meter reading accuracy and efficiency and improving customer service processes and utility operational efficiencies.
When a large storm or natural disaster takes a utility’s network down, time is of the essence. With traditional fixed AMI networks, it can take days or even weeks for utilities to restore their systems and realize the damage. Cellular AMI solutions provide utilities with unmatched uptime and resiliency thanks to cellular networks, which keep utility operations safe and secure.
