The big problem that Utilities face includes:
(i) How to make meters “smart” and ingest the data from homes to the companies and;
(ii) how to derive intelligent actions from huge amounts of meter data, in an efficient and cost-effective way.
Solving these problems would help Utilities track & monitor water consumption data, identify leakage, theft & various anomalies. This demands the need of a scalable system with remote asset management & proactive maintenance capabilities. This would also help end-consumers understand their water usage for better decision-making to conserve water.
Saviant developed an IoT-based Smart Metering & Data Analytics system using Azure platform for Utilities. The solution helped connect 100,000 smart water meters and manage 250 Million+ data records per year, scalable to 100-times that volume. The system operates with best-in-the-industry data collection frequency of every five-minute visibility of water consumption, scalable to every 1-minute as well. Utilities can now track & identify leaks, unauthorized consumption, missed meter read, their patterns and usage events in real-time through Web portal. Also, the end-consumers can monitor their water usage pattern through Web & Mobile apps; thereby helping in intelligent decision-making to conserve water.
