Governments around the world now consider the construction of smart cities a part of national development strategy. Given the already prevalent scarcity of water resources, urban water processing and delivery systems will be prioritized higher and receive higher investment.
The use of NB-IoT technology in intelligent water supply solutions immediately demonstrates several advantages over GSM — real-time monitoring, data analysis, and water consumption forecast capabilities — with better capacity and energy efficiency. NB-IoT modules can also reliably transmit rich sets of information regarding consumption, meter readings, and water pressure to local water management companies.
Compared to ZigBee, LoRa, FSK (RF), and Sigfox, NB-IoT provides much deeper coverage regardless of structural environment limitations, and solves issues related to concentrator/gateway installation and services. Moreover, NB-IoT uses a secure mobile network, guaranteeing the safety and privacy of data.
Huawei's OceanConnect IoT Platform is equipped to coordinate with NB-IoT networks in providing real-time command delivery, offline command delivery management, periodic and secure data reporting, and remote batch upgrades of devices. At the same time, the platform uses only half the power consumed by traditional solutions, and extends the lifecycle of devices.
