Largest LoRaWAN Network in Poland From Kerlink and AIUT

IoT-Specialists Kerlink and AIUT just completed the largest LoRaWAN network in Poland for water-supply monitoring and management. The companies combine Kerlink Wirnet gateways and AIUT’s sensors.

The wireless network was deployed in Piekary Śląskie. The city has 55,000 residents spread across 40 square kilometers. AIUT provides cities with systems for remote, stationary utility-meter readouts, measurement and leak. With hourly and daily readouts, real-time monitoring of the municipal water supply network’s operation is made possible. At the same time, operating costs for the water utility are reduced. Commissioned by the Municipal Water and Sewerage Company in Piekary Śląskie, the system includes 6.5 thousand Apulse-W extension modules on Itron water meters, 166 OKO data concentrators, 15 Kerlink LoRa antennas, as well as SIMAX software for data analysis, e-Customer Service communication, and network management optimization.Kerlink already has more than 120,000 installations in 69 countries in all the primary IoT verticals.
This is the first implementation of this kind and scale in Poland. It will open the way for development of smart-city applications. The Polish Ministry of Digitization confirmed that the project demonstrates how the use of IoT technology can become a strategic direction for the Polish economy to develop.

The network in Piekary Śląskie confirms that smart-city systems provide the same benefits to all cities – no matter their size. Water-purchase optimization, incident and leak detection, e-billing and lower service fees are just some of the benefits of implementing such smart solutions,

said Artur Gabryś, director of the Smart City IoT Division at AIUT.

It is well known that good ROI in digitization of urban infrastructure will largely depend both on the solutions and technologies available on the market as well as the competence to implement them properly. It is therefore important to choose the right technology partner, and Kerlink has shown in multiple LoRaWAN networks around the world that its simple and reliable solutions ensure top performance.

For nearly 30 years, AIUT has been committed to helping businesses and water utilities adopt and benefit by the latest industrial technologies that improve efficiency and lower operating costs,

said Stéphane Dejean, Kerlink CMO.

As a leading provider of Internet of Things solutions, the company is developing smart systems that can seamlessly integrate Kerlink’s industrial-grade hardware and software products for multiple smart applications.
