Telstra has won a 15-year competitive contract with Yarra Valley Water to provide one million industrial IoT services on Telstra’s IoT network.
The win is Telstra’s largest IoT deal to date and the first large-scale IoT deployment utilising Telstra’s new cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service IoT Connection Manager (ICM), which will help Yarra Valley Water, based in Victoria, Australia, gain access to near real-time data from a range of in-field sensors.
Specifically developed for large scale projects, ICM provides simple and effective SIM and connectivity management that takes the complexity out of managing one million connections.
Yarra Valley Water Managing Director, Pat McCafferty, said: “Internet of Things devices are a game changer for the water industry. By deploying a range of different sensors into our water and sanitation networks, we can detect leaks, minimise water wastage and save our customers money.”
As part of the deal Telstra will provide the IoT connectivity and the ICM Platform to enable sensor readings to be collected automatically in near real-time. This enables Yarra Valley Water to be far more proactive by helping prevent leaks from becoming bursts, sewer blockages from becoming spills and notifying customers about issues on their properties so they can act quickly.Click below to share this article
