Four Faith Supports Deployment of New Water Meter Monitoring Service in India Using the LoRaWAN® Standard
It is an ideal IoT platform for smart metering with its easy to deploy, long-range, and flexible capabilities. The FourFaith water metering solution using LoRaWAN allows our water supply customers to reduce operating costs, improve the efficiency of meter reading management and save water resources.
For the water meter monitoring project in India for the government, the communication arrangement is about several kilometers and houses are concentrated. It is not easy to get a power source because most of the water meters are installed outside the wall.
There are the project requirements:
- Low power consumption, can be powered by battery for years.
- Auto report water meter for a fixed time, can be pre-configured.
- Small size, can be easily embedded into water meter.
- Support to be manually read by the handheld device, for some points which cannot be read automatically.
- Go to sleep mode if no reading to save the battery.
FourFaith provides the F8L10D-N module for this project, F8L10D-N is a low power consumption LoRaWAN module that can reach 3uA for sleep mode. F8L10D-N is small enough to be embedded into the water meter with TTL ready to connect.
Currently, our customer had already installed the FourFaith LoRaWAN solution with water meters to the field, around 8000 LoRaWAN modules work well with the water meters. This project helps our customers to improve efficiency and reduce management costs.
“It is exciting to see our members deploying solutions leveraging the LoRaWAN standard at scale,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “The technical attributes of LoRaWAN are ideal for metering applications, as this deployment indicates. The flexibility of the LoRaWAN standard to address multiple challenges – distance, battery life, automated services – are key to why it is the only LPWAN ready to support massive IoT.”
