LoRa® Devices Enable Smart Utility Metering

Webinar hosted by Semtech and Birdz

The market for smart utility meters is growing at a rapid pace. IHS Markit forecasts almost 50 million smart water meters will ship globally in 2023, a number roughly four times its size in 2017. Globally, the proportion of smart meters will soon exceed half of all meters shipped annually.

Birdz, a subsidiary of Nova Veolia and a global leader in optimized resource management, recently implemented a smart water metering network in France leveraging Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol to generate significant benefits, including an eight percent increase in water network efficiency in just four years.

Join Semtech and Birdz for an in-depth webinar on LoRaWAN and smart utility metering solutions.
