Infovista has revealed that Italgas, a leading Italian distributor of gas and water serving enterprise and consumer customers, can now monitor over 8 million connected smart meters across the country following the successful deployment of Infovista’s next-gen automated assurance solution, Ativa.
The Ativa solution provides Italgas with real-time visibility and control over its IoT network, enhancing service reliability, reducing costs and enabling Italgas to adhere to contracted Service Level Agreements (SLAs) with the Italian Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and Environment (ARERA).
Ativa plays a pivotal role in supporting Italgas’ Digital Transformation, with the company expecting to achieve more than 90% cost reduction through operational efficiencies such as minimising field visits, improved visibility of the network quality Italgas receives from CSPs and adherence to contracted SLAs and subsequently higher compliance to their SLA requirements mandated by ARERA.
The automated assurance of Italgas’ 8 million IoT devices enables the company to quickly identify the root cause of any issues and monitor the reliability of the three CSP networks connecting its nationwide network of smart meters. Ativa, which is a cloud-native and open platform by design, allows Italgas to integrate with its own cloud-based Business Intelligence systems for maximum operational efficiency. Meanwhile, Ativa’s multi-tenancy capabilities enable the expansion of the existing system to other international markets in which Italgas operates.
The out-of-the-box capabilities of Ativa, which allowed for deployment and integration in just under three months, was a factor that significantly influenced the selection decision.Click below to share this article
