Advanced Water Metering Infrastructure Grows to Meet Increased Need

By Juhi Fadia November 19, 2019

Reports estimate that 80 billion additional metric tons of municipal water will be required over the next five years for use in cities.

To meet the escalating demands of so many inhabitants, cities are looking at ways to become “smarter” and more flexible in responding to citizens’ needs, a challenge recognized by Senet and MeterSYS, who recently announced their collaboration to provide utilities and local governments with IoT solutions for a broad range of municipal services including water distribution, sewer collection, storm, and floodwater management, solid waste management, parking controls, fleet management, public safety, energy conservation, and climate monitoring. 

Senet’s cloud-based software and services platforms reportedly is being integrated with MeterSYS smart city and metering technology solutions for public utilities. Senet has already designed and implemented smart meter networks for many municipal water utility districts across North America, representing millions of households. MeterSYS provides evaluation, selection, and implementation services for advanced metering infrastructure serving public utilities.

“Providing end-to-end AMI and smart city IoT solutions through the Senet and MeterSYS partnership provides utilities and municipalities a single source to fully leverage infrastructure investments, boost efficiencies and accelerate sustainability efforts across a variety of public service operations,” said Andy Honeycutt, President and Chief Consulting Officer, MeterSYS. “Senet’s LoRaWAN network and flexible deployment options allow us to support the unique needs of our customers for automated meter reading and a broad range of smart city initiatives.”

“We are excited to be partnering with MeterSYS to deliver innovation to public utilities and municipalities, helping to provide cost-savings, the ability to generate new service revenues and improved customer satisfaction,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO, Senet. “Forward-thinking cities have come to recognize that to realize the full value of IoT, they must deploy a secure and scalable network that supports multiple solutions and applications. Connecting municipalities with the robust networks deployed for water metering could mean a huge leap forward in the delivery of many connected city services.”
