New generation fixed network for water utilities


Itron Inc. has launched the Water Fixed Network 2.5 (WFN) a new generation fixed network designed specifically for water utilities, which allows advanced metering capabilities through a newly developed high powered endpoint. WFN 2.5 transforms standard residential and commercial water meters into sophisticated devices capable of more frequent data collection and timely tamper and leak detection.

Itron has also developed a unique set of Knowledge Applications that extend the value of the system. The applications, built on the Itron Enterprise Edition meter data management platform and using powerful data management and analysis tools, transform the data collected into valuable knowledge to improve business decisions. Leak Management and Tamper Analysis are two core applications in the system.
