Remote infrastructure monitoring using real-time data improves performance and efficiency of water networks

Smart water networks help prevent service failure

Upgrading to a smart water network enables utilities and municipalities to monitor pipeline networks in real-time, supporting targeted proactive management and maintenance. Better decision-making, driven by comprehensive data can help reduce incidents of leakage and diminish the risk of service failure for customers. Incidents on the network can instantly be identified or even anticipated by monitoring pipe deterioration and alerting on unauthorised tampering activity. Smarter management of networks improves performance, benefiting customers and helping to protect the environment, while keeping costs down.
