The recent advances in direct-to-satellite networks that leverage LoRa® are driving game-changing progress in the water metering industry. The multiple challenges around piecing together various communication technologies and their surrounding expertise to enable the data transfer from smart water meters can be all but eliminated.
For our partner, Galaxy1, the benefits of EchoStar Mobile’s direct-to-satellite LoRa®-enabled IoT network are revolutionising their roll-out of smart water meters. Efficiency is significantly improved in their deployment. Meanwhile, engineers no longer have to drive their efforts into solving the connectivity conundrum. Instead, they can focus on developing new technology for gathering more detailed and valuable information from the water metering devices.
