INTEGRA Metering installs its first CALEC® ST II LoRaWAN®
Discover how Aquametro answered the needs of a leading thermal energy company with its CALEC® ST II LoRaWAN® solution.
Remote reading of all meters’ data has become the new challenge for many utilities providers.
A leading thermal energy provider was looking for a solution to easily access their thermal meters’ indexes remotely. This well-known company with more than 170,000 customers in Switzerland and France focuses on network, energy, heating, renewables, energy efficiency, and develops energy supply solutions for private and commercial customers, as well as for energy companies, cities, and municipalities.
As their exclusive provider of thermal energy meters for the past 10 years it was only natural that the company reached out to at INTEGRA Metering through its Swiss distributor Aquametro AG/SA for this project.
In order to meet our clients’ requirements, a proof of concept project involving our service team was setup together with Swisscom IoT and accompanied by a dedicated project manager. A first set of CALEC® ST II LoRaWAN® meters was rolled out under guidance of our technical specialist. LoRaWAN® is an IoT (Internet of Things) wireless communication network that offers many advantages, such as improved energy management, increased efficiency, and more visibility for customers. The new CALEC® ST II meters communicate over the LoRaWAN® network managed and operated by Swisscom.
With the deployment of this solution, the provider can now receive thermal energy consumption data from every meter at 15-minute intervals. This enables accurate and efficient monitoring, reducing waste, and minimizing deployment costs, which results in substantial savings on their total cost of ownership. Pleased about the collaboration and our great performance, the company’s goal is now to continue adding more CALEC® ST II devices with LoRaWAN® from INTEGRA Metering in their installations and democratize our fixed-network solutions to their clients in Switzerland and France.
