Verizon Grid Wide Utility Solutions: Intelligent Gas makes it easy to get started, with a fully managed, scalable, secure, cloud-based IoT platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model. It’s a cost-effective, efficient way to modernize your gas system with smart gas metering, meter data management, and distribution monitoring and control using a single platform, which means you control how much and when you upgrade your gas system management infrastructure.
With the Verizon Grid Wide IoT Gateway, you can take advantage of an integrated solution for smart gas metering with point-to-multipoint communication to service and collect data from multiple gas meters and sensors. The Grid Wide IoT Gateway supports open standards and technologies, with open interfaces that provide support for proprietary gas-meter-reading protocols and a wide range of radio modulations and frequencies. The Grid Wide IoT Gateway solution provides utilities with an extensible open-standards-based solution that helps avoid proprietary technology lock-in. Best of all, intelligent gas solutions let you pay as you go. You can focus on problem areas first, and upgrade services as you need them.
