Integrarted Solutions for Utilities

With utility service areas continually growing, the utility industry is turning to intelligent ways for operation and business process management. One of the technologies they implemented is wireless communications. This allows for instant communications which streamlines operations, infrastructure and customer equipment repair, and emergency response. Wireless communication combined with smart meters also allows for analysis of customer usage statistics, system load, and other data. Additionally, radio frequency identifier (RFID) tags are being used to monitor utility distribution network and intermediate equipment status. Embedded in the distribution infrastructure, RFID tags send information on the status, safety, and wear or damage of cables, transformers, pipes, pipelines, tanks, etc. All of this allows utilities to take proactive measures to minimize potentially expensive maintenance and repair.
