DNA has signed an agreement on the provision of M2M subscriptions to Econet Ltd, a company specialised in water and environment technology.
Econet has developed a water meter remote reading device ESCU, which makes it possible to monitor the consumption, pressure and quality of water and to detect leaks in time.
M2M subscriptions enable real-time monitoring of water consumption. DNA will deliver the M2M subscriptions to Econet in the coming years. The delivery includes thousands of M2M subscriptions in total. The subscriptions will be installed in data transmission units to be connected to water meters, and they will operate in DNA’s network.
“We need reliable connections for remote monitoring, management and leak location, for example. One of the reasons we selected DNA as our partner was the company’s high-quality and comprehensive network,” says Antti Herlevi, Development Director of Econet Ltd.
Econet Ltd’s customers include mainly waterworks around the world. The aim of the company’s is to gain fast access to international markets.
“Remote reading of water consumption is an example of the Internet of Things, which has huge growth potential,” says Eva Lindholm, Director of DNA’s Corporate Sales.
