Intelligent Water Supply System

Verizon Intelligent Water as a service

Modernizing your public water supply system is easier than you think.

The more you know about your water supply system operations, the better. Our intelligent water platform delivers actionable data in near real time to help you improve efficiencies and conservation efforts. With an open, integrated Internet of Things (IoT) approach to smart metering, meter data management, and distribution monitoring and control, you can remotely detect and diagnose leaks, reverse flow and unusually high water usage, helping to reduce nonrevenue water, deliver a better customer experience, and control water resource management costs.


Make every drop count.

Getting started is quick and easy. Verizon Grid Wide Utility Solutions: Intelligent Water is a fully managed, scalable, secure, cloud-based IoT platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model, which means you control how much and when you upgrade your public water supply system management infrastructure.

With the Verizon Grid Wide IoT Gateway, you can take advantage of an integrated solution for smart water metering with point-to-multipoint communication to service and collect data from multiple water meters and sensors. The Grid Wide IoT Gateway supports open standards and technologies, with open interfaces that provide support for proprietary water meter reading protocols and a wide range of radio modulations and frequencies. This gives you an extensible open-standards-based solution that helps avoid proprietary technology lock-in. Benefit from an open solution that you can use on a per-month, per-meter basis, with the ability to pay as you go for services.
