Utilities are making efforts to modernise their grid networks and improve customer services. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and AMR based on Cellular IoT are a big part of that strategy. This critical element is enabled by reliable and economical communication.
LPWA networks are designed for M2M applications that demand low data rates, long battery life and optimised cost in addition to being able to operate in remote and hard-to-reach locations. For smart metering, LPWA provides a large number of connections and deep penetration, which improves work efficiency and reduces labour and cost. It has proven to be a game-changing concept in smart metering.
Quectel provides a rich modular portfolio addressing various needs for smart energy solutions, enabling multiple successes in domestic and overseas markets. Millions of Quectel NB-IoT and LTE modules have been used to connect countless meters and LPWA networks in a dozen countries worldwide. Shipments of NB-IoT modules has exceeded 15 million pieces, and the Quectel multi-mode LTE module EC2X series has been widely used in smart grid applications, indicating the new market trend.
