Whether your utilities company is using meters and sensors to measure power, gas, water, or heat, your need is simple: you need your meters to stay connected wirelessly, while consuming the fewest resources possible. This reliable connection ensures that your devices are operational, allowing your revenue streams to stay protected and customers to stay informed of their consumption.
Our cloud-based device management platform and software development kit were designed specifically for the smart meter and utilities industry, with the goal of helping utilities companies to fully embrace the future of IoT.
Trusted by Industry Leaders
Get your meters connected and running in days, not months
Save time and money
Get your meters up and running in record time with technology that was designed for the smart metering industry. With a competitive buy vs. build ratio, our products enable you to focus on implementation and monitoring rather than research and design.
Interoperability and scalability are at the heart of a future-proof investment. Our team of PhD’s and engineers have mastered the ins and outs of Lightweight Machine to Machine (LwM2M) and CoAP technologies to ensure that your investment is utilized for years to come.
Powerful, not power-hungry
With one of the smallest footprints in the industry, our software development kit gives smart meters a lifespan of 10+ years and uses very little bandwidth for communication. Our cloud-based device management platform allows you to track, manage, and update millions of meters without hiring a team of experts.
Security for today and tomorrow
Protect your smart meters from increasingly common cyber-attacks. With regular firmware over the air (FOTA) updates, your devices will always have access to the latest software and security version. Automate firmware updates for millions of devices, even those intermittently available.
ALASKA is a cloud-based device management platform that offers remote management for the entire lifecycle of the smart meter. From bootstrapping to security to decommissioning, be fully in control of your fleet of smart meters without ever leaving your seat.
Focus on deployment, not development. IOWA’s software development kit was built on interoperable Lightweight Machine to Machine (LwM2M) and Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) standards, allowing you to get your smart meter system running in just a few days.
Our Products are Built on Open Standards
Lightweight Machine to Machine (LwM2M)
Managing thousands or hundreds of thousands of meters and sensors on the field with multiple proprietary technologies can be challenging. Not only is connecting multiple user-interfaces is difficult, but changing a vendor can affect your existing platform. To address this problem, we’ve built our software and cloud interface to strictly adhere to Lightweight Machine to Machine (LwM2M) globally-recognized open standards, which eliminates the needs for proprietary systems.
Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT)
LwM2M goes hand-in-hand with Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), which is a low power wide area (LPWA) network created especially for low-power and battery-powered IoT devices. NB-IoT enables connectivity for hard-to-reach devices, such as a meter located below ground or deep inside a building. What’s more, LwM2M can empower NB-IoT devices to last for 10+ years. NB-IoT also supports a massive number of connections and performs on an optimized network architecture, making it one of the best standardized technologies available for smart meters.
