Electricity suppliers will be able to monitor electricity consumption more accurately.
Singtel and smart metering solutions provider EDMI Limited are collaborating to develop a smart electric metering infrastructure for Singapore.
According to a press release, The partners have successfully tested smart electric meters, powered by seamless connectivity on Singtel’s nationwide Cat-M1 cellular Internet of Things (IoT) network.
Combining smart meters with the IoT network enables secure wireless transmission of real-time meter readings at regular intervals to the power grid.
Singtel said this will allow electricity suppliers to monitor electricity consumption and project demand.
Singtel’s Cat-M1 IoT network went live in September 2017. It has been conducting trials with over 20 potential partners at an IoT innovation lab that was set up with Ericsson earlier in the year.
