Saviant is one of those few Cloud experts who have pushed the envelop to build cutting-edge custom Azure IoT solutions and delivers custom solutions for Water Utilities. Our IoT consulting team created the robust architecture around Smart water metering that communicates with Verizon Wireless Network and backed by strong data analytical engine on Azure. The team implemented a fast and secured data processing using Service Bus, Worker Role and Azure Tables. This helped create a high performance IoT Architecture to process data from 500,000 meters every day with accounts to a mere 5% of the implemented system’s capacity.
The IoT based Smart Water Metering system provides real-time visibility over water consumption to consumers and Utilities. The solution comprises of a multi-tenant web portal for Utility companies and mobile apps for Consumers - to view the captured data. With the data analytics engine in place, the system also generates analytics for the users to get real-time insights on water consumption. It is designed to generate 22 alerts on conditions/anomalies such as over consumption of water resource, billing, leakage detection to name a few. The system features two-way communication between Cloud Service and CDMA based water meters with communication time locked at 200-300 millisecond. The VN Server and Azure Storage serves as the meter data management system (MDMS) for the VN system. Utilities can also monitor the health of smart meters through this robust IoT solution.
