Water Utility Companies
and the Digital Transition


Much of the existing water infrastructure is nearing the end of its life. Combined with the ever-increasing operational costs for real-time water monitoring, utilities companies are quickly realizing the value of going digital. Still, they are faced with a number of challenges: proprietary devices cause difficulty for improvements or upgrades, increased attacks on public services require constant monitoring and maintenance, and managing the complexity of Narrowband-IoT are enough to hinder companies who clearly see the benefits of going digital.
