Traditional metering operations are labor intensive and utilize subjective measurement by field personnel. Additionally, meters are often located in dense urban environments, indoors or even underground, which can be difficult or impossible to reach by many wireless technologies. By implementing a smart metering infrastructure comprised of sensors and gateways embedded with LoRa Technology, utility companies can collect data remotely and use personnel more efficiently to streamline operations. Over 30 million units of LoRa®-based smart meters are currently deployed around the globe.
