Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
Lab-to-Market within Few Weeks Instead of Months - Simplified integration with their billing system that they supply with their water meters. InstaMsg restful api made integration faster.
Real-time Data Analytics - Real-time interval data from Ztech water meters enables their customers to analyze consumptions patterns. Alerts are sent to consumers when water consumption pattern is different than the normal consumption. This simple feature itself has helped save millions of liter of water.
No Vendor Lock In - InstaMsg clients are open source and support a variety of chipsets and programming language. This enables Ztech to chose the hardware chipset of our choice. Ztech started this a Wavecom chipset but later moved its solution to a Telit chipset that supported ARM architecture. Moving to a different platform just required them to swap InstaMsg client libraries.
Today Ztech has more than 800 meters in the field using InstaMsg with uptime of 99.9%.
The per meter cost is so low that Ztech has in build the cost of InstaMsg cloud service for the entire life of the meter into their product cost.
