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.

Real- time water data monitoring – Utilities can track & identify leaks, unauthorized consumption, missed meter read, their patterns and usage events. Also, Customers will get text alerts & emails on abnormal consumption patterns such as high usage, zero usage and leakages via a notification engine.

Improved Water usage efficiency – Solution helps create healthy water supply network, with real-time Distribution analytics, asset health analysis & predictive maintenance of Utilities assets; saving millions of gallons of water.

Increased Battery Life – Solution helps to increase the battery life of water meters by 40-50%, giving high ROI to Utilities

Cloud based Smart data management system that handles 50 Million+ data records per year and can manage 100-times that volume.

Connected 100,000 Smart water meters using this IoT solution for a Utility giant. The system can easily handle 5x more such devices.

Improved system uptime by 99.95% SLA with high availability & security capabilities.

Hardware
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
Connectivity as a service as provided by telecommunications companies, i.e. data transfer, radio waves.
