What is a Smart Water Network?
A smart water network is an integrated set of products, solutions and systems that enable utilities to remotely and continuously monitor and diagnose problems, prioritize and manage maintenance issues and use data to optimize all aspects of the water distribution network.
At KTI and Sensus, water is our passion. Our smart water network solution has been embraced by over 300 water utilities in the U.S and Canada with over four million SmartPoints™ installed and in operation.
This includes two-way real time networks with field sensors, measurement and control devices; along with software and services. Two-way real-time networks are nothing new. But challenges with power and location have prevented implementation of new technologies. Pipes are buried under streets and sidewalks and are difficult and expensive to access. And there is no inherent power supply in pipes as there is with electric utilities.
While many utilities have identified the need for smarter infrastructure and technological investments, few have embraced an end-to-end smart water network. Smart water networks offer all types of utilities a tremendous opportunity to improve productivity and efficiency while enhancing customer service. Smart water networks also have incredible potential to help alleviate impending water scarcity.
