Smart water networks will endure when the IoT bubble bursts
In its latest Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, the analyst firm Gartner places the Internet of Things (IoT) at the top of the life cycle phase it calls the ‘Peak of Inflated Expectations’. Beneath the hype there lies a reality: the IoT is delivering value in practical and unsensational ways that will endure.
i2O has been taking advantage of IoT technologies since long before the term ‘Internet of Things’ was coined to help water utilities deliver better customer service and remove the excess strain that damages assets and increases leakage and burst frequency.
Our CEO Joel Hagan has just written this article for Water Online about how low power electronics, ubiquitous communications and cheaper computing are helping water companies monitor and remotely control their distribution networks.
