Presentation: Lean, Mean, Green Telco

Operators are at a crossroads. Excited by a new revenue opportunity with 5G so close to their fingertips, they spent billions acquiring new spectrum and infrastructure, setting up far-reaching ESG targets, and fighting to strip out internal complexity. However, the proper execution of a sustainability agenda presents an operational and strategic opportunity.  

It is essential not to allow other players in the ecosystem to take the leading innovator role in ESG, as happened in 3G and 4G.  

In this session, we will discuss how operators can play an assertive role in the new space, transforming into a lean, green, and mean Telco, driving the market, instead of looking on from the side-line.

Presentation: An IoT solution to help water utilities ‘find’ their lost water

NRW-DT is a digital twin that helps water utilities identify leakage. It uses pressure and flow sensors to create a live model for a pressure zone. Using these data inputs, the solution identifies potential leakage locations. The innovative technology behind NRW-DT allows water utilities to automatically identify the sources of leaks and avoid the costly and time-consuming process of manually inspecting infrastructure. 

  • Reducing non-revenue water is a top priority for utilities across America and around the world. 
  • Successful implementation of IoT solutions can potentially provide water utilities with the data they need to identify leaks or breaks in their water infrastructure sooner and more accurately, which can significantly reduce the volume of water lost. 
  • Our solution was pilot tested with a water utility in Ohio, where the leak detection solution showed excellent results.
