Sponsored by

LIBERTY LAKE, WA, June 4, 2014 -- Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI) has expanded its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) capabilities in North America with its cellular solution for water utilities. The technology enables utilities to easily collect real-time consumption and flow analysis, pressure data, and meter data from commercial and industrial (C&I) customers via a public cellular network.

The cellular solution is built on Itron's global WaterMind solution and features an analyzer module with cellular communications, a pressure sensor and Itron's software as a service. Each module can support up to four water meters at once. With the solution, utilities can monitor distribution systems and receive real-time updates on performance.

When used with Itron Analytics, the solution combines critical pressure data, flow analysis and consumption information with fundamental AMI data to provide utilities with an effective distribution monitoring system.

The solution also provides utilities with tamper, zero flow and peak pressure alarms as well as flow rate distribution analysis and meter right-sizing capabilities for C&I customers. With plug-and-play cellular communications, the solution can be easily installed across diverse territories.
