Telit Cinterion and WaterSignal Upgrade Crucial Water Monitoring Systems

By Alex Passett

When I’ve had a chance to write about enterprise-grade IoT products and software Telit Cinterion, a theme the articles shared was secure and streamlined connectivity primed to improve lives and redefine IoT-centric business operations for the better. Whether it concerned the company’s new deviceWISE AI Visual Inspection tool for manufacturers and operators collecting workstation data, or its “secure-by-design” roadmap to ensure that IoT ecosystems remain safe, secure and regulated, the stories wrap up similarly – Telit Cinterion has positioned itself as an IoT pioneer and continues to deliver custom, ready-for-market solutions.

Now, more news from the company is ringing that same bell; this time, it concerns the secure transfer of water data alongside WaterSignal, a provider of accurate solutions in the water efficiency and conservation sector. Always-on connectivity for reliable water monitoring systems is vital, and access to on-demand data is key.

That’s what Telit Cinterion and WaterSignal are collaborating on.

Here’s more context: As water scarcity continues to be a very real problem worldwide, baseline water benchmarking and evaluation tools have become super critical. These require that on-demand data so operating teams for domestic meters, cooling towers, and irrigation systems can succeed. Worsening power outage issues don’t help either, and WaterSignal realized it needed to be able to transfer water data independent of a specific power source. It also needed a trusted and dependable technology partner for cellular IoT connectivity and network services.

Ergo, WaterSignal looked to Telit Cinterion and its cellular LPWA modules and various IoT connectivity offerings for their respective units.

When supported by cellular LPWA and IoT-powered resources, WaterSignal’s remote water monitoring capabilities advance. Its teams, as result, gain deeper insights into their towers and systems’ efficiencies. (All while eliminating the need to perform the kind of repetitive, manual day-to-day meter readings that prove less efficient in the modern hyper-connected era.)

Additionally, Telit Cinterion’s modules include a Power Saving Mode (PSM) as well as an extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX), both of which are ideal for increasing what becomes needed for IoT application power-saving and extended battery life. As Telit Cinterion put it, this allows developers to employ a “design once, use anywhere” type of strategy, which reportedly helps to “decrease costs, truncate development time, and deploy the most optimal technologies for the applications environment.”

“When monitoring critical resources, like water, a reliable connection is very pivotal to maintaining visibility and extracting actionable insights,” said Neset Yalcinkaya, SVP Sales America at Telit Cinterion. “WaterSignal's technology is invaluable for operation teams, and we are pleased that Telit Cinterion's cellular LPWA modules and IoT connectivity solutions are central to providing essential connections; particularly, the ability to harness cellular instead of Wi-Fi to best transfer water data independently of a power source during an outage.”

Overall, this capability provides more stable connectivity to make smart systems even smarter. That, as it seems, is the Telit Cinterion way.
