Smart Metering System: Telkomsel and PDAM’s Boundless Innovation

There are always innovative ways to improve business performance. This time, Telkomsel collaborated with PDAM to provide a breakthrough solution for Indonesia’s energy industries by inventing Smart Metering System. A device that has been proven to increase efficiency, performance, and PDAM’s customer value.

Smart Metering System is a pressure, temperature and water level measurement device that automatically sends collected data to PDAM’s database every 30 minutes. This IoT solution’s power lasts for up to 2-3 years if equipped with GPRS, or 4-5 years with the latest connectivity technology called NB-IoT (Narrowband Internet of Things).

The implementation of the Smart Metering System is one of PDAM’s many efforts to improve corporates’ productivity and to provide the best service for the customers. For example, technicians no longer have to manually gather information of what’s shown on a meter every month or week. Smart Metering System automates the process in real-time, accurately. In return, Customer’s needs can now be solved swiftly, thanks to the 24/7 data.

This piece of technology helps PDAM monitor the overall utilization and usage behavior easily, remotely, in one advanced platform. The information written in real-time could prevent data fraud and leaks. Additionally, the use of energy-saving NB-IoT could lower operational costs making Smart Metering System a total business improvement.

NB-IoT itself is a new Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) designed for IoT devices with network coverage twice as big as GSM coverage. NB-IoT is able to produce massive connection capacity, up to 300.000 connected devices. That makes this technology suitable for dense city areas or rural areas without 4G coverage. With an affordable module price, a battery that lasts for up to 10 years, and LTE-level security, NB-IoT can be implemented in any sector of industry with concise ROI.

There are so many industry sectors out there that can be improved through the implementation of the right IoT solution. That’s why Telkomsel commits to providing the latest digital solutions and services, and IoT is one of them. Let’s take Indonesia’s economy to the next level through collaboration and boundless innovations.
