Our utilities vision
Our aspiration is to empower utilities to exponentially enhance and streamline operations through smart connectivity of assets and deep analytics.
The IoT (Internet of Things) has transformed the way companies do business. By providing this technology, we are equipping Utilities with the power to control, monitor and manage their assets better. Through detection and alarming systems, automation, analytics, plus more visibility and control, we can help steer Utilities towards enhanced operational efficiencies and reduced costs.
We offer a complete managed service purpose built to enhance the efficiency, business intelligence and revenues of Australian Water Utility organisations.
The solution is underpinned by Telstra's network strength, cloud assets and relationships with leading industry vendors.
