IoT and low power unite to benefit utility companies

Improvements and cost reductions in radio technology are opening all sorts of opportunities to add connectivity to far-flung operations, such as pipelines and other infrastructure networks. Low-cost, low-power protocols such as narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), coupled with careful power management engineering to maximize battery life, give us exciting new options for connectivity and “smart” systems.

This recent article from IoT News takes a closer look at how some utility companies are making use of these advances in IoT technology and AI to cut costs and improve data quality and analysis.
