Business Need

The client wanted to integrate CDMA based Smart Water Metering system with Azure Table Storage. Data visualization at real time was the core requirement and more to that developing such system to run as cross-platform compatible mobile application added to the challenge. The system should give a Dashboard view for Water-meters installed across the US and mobile apps showing consumption charts for customers to view. The mobile app further can be configured for alerts and notification at the consumer end.

To make data easily available, client wanted the mobile application to cater diverse mobile devices and platforms. With limited display space on offer, maximum relevant information be made available to individual user. Most importantly the system to be developed must give analytics on the fly regarding water consumption and generate alerts on certain conditions.

The Solution - Robust Azure Mobile App Backend System

Microsoft Azure (IaaS And PaaS), Verizon Wireless Network, MVC, Azure Tables, Azure Service Bus Queue

Saviant team developed Hybrid Mobile application using Apache Cordova platform. The Mobile application provides real-time access to users on their water usage, billing and leakage data. We leveraged Azure mobile services as mBaaS to host app on Azure. The robust Azure mBaaS architecture includes other cloud services like Azure Table storage, Azure App Service, Stream Analytics, Azure ML as well.

With live stream of data available for processing, it enabled business Analytics on usage of water across the locations. Automated billing could be done for water meter usage. VN Server and Azure Storage served as the Meter Data Management System (MDMS) for the VN system.
