Sensus, BAI offer energy-saving communication technology to Australian utilities

Sensus Logo

Sensus and BAI are bringing the FlexNet system to Australian utilities to improve operations, manage maintenance issues before they escalate, and meet changing market and customer expectations.

The Sensus FlexNet system is a carrier-grade network that uses dedicated, secure spectrum ideal for digital utilities. The network architecture supports multiple applications including meter reading, pressure and temperature control and streetlight management using both electric and battery-powered field devices.

FlexNet is based on open standards and can support future capacity and reach requirements. It is interoperable with multiple systems and endpoints for delivering data that helps utilities save time and money.

According to NICTA, Australian water utilities spend $1.4 billion per year on reactive repairs and maintenance. Focusing the asset maintenance efforts on preventative repairs has the potential to save the water industry $700 million per year.

Frequent natural disasters, including bushfires and floods, present a challenge for Australian utilities to maintain service levels and equipment readiness. BAI’s engineering and operational excellence will ensure the FlexNet system will operate seamlessly and self-sufficiently in all conditions.
