Remote Asset Monitoring Solution for Water & Wastewater Utility Networks

You are here

The All-In-One Gateway for Your E2E IIoT Solution

Flexible Communication Interfaces | Edge Computing | KPI Analysis

Onsite maintenance of your water utility and sewage utility assets costs you time, money and resources, so you’re keen to avoid being on-prem whenever possible. The key to staying offsite is to monitor your water utility assets remotely. You can do this with an IIoT solution for remote asset monitoring, supplanting your legacy maintenance schedules of physically-present inspections, resulting in a much lower OpEx for tracking, preventing and preempting water plant, pipage and wastewater or wastewater treatment problems. The Industrial IoWT (Internet of Water Things) is the new normal, and you can harness it for easiest management. 

Data-Informed Insights

Failure of critical assets means frustrated customers, delayed operations, and financial loss. To preempt and/or deal with downtimes, asset monitoring is key. But beyond that, the value of remote monitoring lies in the fact that the data gleaned from remote device monitoring can be leveraged for KPI reporting capabilities, enabling informed business decisions by executives based on smart asset tracking for water utilities and waste management, including smart metering.

Therefore, industries are replacing their former maintenance schedules and visual inspections with new remote technologies for end-to-end site monitoring, including predictive/preventative maintenance.

The Optimal Remote Asset Monitoring Solution (RAMS)

Due to the challenges for remote asset monitoring, organizations are looking to IIoT with edge computing as the solution. The ideal RAMS allows for ultimate flexibility of integration - one that moves away from a cumbersome, multi-domain, disaggregated fragmented monitoring to unified, aggregated end-to-end wireless monitoring, over cellular or fiber networks, public or private, be they 4G, 5G, PLTE, 450MHz (450 LTE) CBRS, LPWA (low power wide area) or other network options for intelligent monitoring.

RAD offers this ideal IIoT integrative solution, reducing the cost of connecting thousands of remote IoT assets, all the while strengthening security. Less hassle means a quicker time to goal.

RAD’s SecFlow IIoT Gateway  

The Freedom of Choice

You know what you need best for your water utility and waste management remote asset monitoring, yet the reality is that not all IIoT gateways are compatible with the solution components you might prefer. RAD SecFlow, however, is adaptable to your choices. The SecFlow IIoT gateway is the robust, all-in-one ruggedized device that enables a seamless IIoT E2E solution, integrating with all your other IIoT components, such as...

    MQTT Connectivity

    SecFlow's edge computing capability allows for MQTT connectivity utilizing the Eclipse foundation Sparkplug B protocol. The benefits are:​

  • Simplifies integration and enables scale by unifying proprietary protocols into Sparkplug B tags​
  • Minimizes data usage reducing cellular cost​
  • Minimize data latency from minutes to seconds, providing real -time situation awareness​
  • Eliminates data loss due to intermittent communication channels using “Store and forward” buffering
  • Secured data with MQTT over TLS ​

Edge Computing

Edge Computing allows for local data processing by sensor-rich assets, rather than via a centralized control center. This saves equipment costs and space and enables future functionality flexibility. Other Edge Computing benefits include ultra-low latency, quick action on detected anomalies, lower mobile data costs, predictive maintenance based on smart data collection, and reduced cyber security needs due to a lower number of components.

Challenged by Complexity, Distance

Managing water utilities and sewage networks remotely is an intricate endeavor, especially as it involves long pipework covering large swaths of area. Using SecFlow, you overcome these challenges seamlessly, monitoring your water utility and sewage network assets flexibly. You’ll wirelessly monitor your…
