Internet of Things as part of the solution
The meters will be read remotely via the Internet of Things (IoT) communication technology SIGFOX. Instead of using regular radio frequency technology to transmit data from meters, SIGFOX enables devices to remotely connect to the internet using ultra-narrow band (UNB) technology. For this project, Kamstrup has fitted an IoT chip into its MULTICAL® 21 water meters which gives access to the SIGFOX network.
IoT meter reading solutions along with Kamstrup’s own data collection systems are considered to be next-generation because of the valuable data they provide utilities with.
