The utility industry embraces digital technologies, not simply to survive but to thrive amid these challenging times.
Digitalization is considered an essential cornerstone from which utilities can realize new efficiencies, not only related to meter-to-cash applications but also for setting in motion the foundations to achieve long-term sustainability goals.
Backed by government initiatives and mandates, energy utilities are becoming increasingly more reliant on cellular connectivity and the accompanying technologies, such as Embedded Subscriber Identity Modules (eSIM), to meet their obligations and mandates while also looking to leverage digitization as a means to ultimately reinvent how they do business in the future.
Cellular LPWA networks are gaining real momentum as a viable connectivity option to connect smart meters.
In this context, eSIMs can further support smart energy actors to simplify smart meter manufacturing and global fleet installation and reliably capture energy insights from metering points through new automation and 24/7 network coverage.
