30,000 NB-Fi modems supplied for Advanced Gas Metering project

Moldovagaz JSC together with regional gas distribution companies initiated a program for deployment of an Advanced Gas Metering system. 30,000 smart gas meters were upgraded in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, during the first stage of the project which was accomplished in 2020. The project was deployed by Chisinau-Gas, a local gas distribution company. During the project, 30,000 existing gas meters were connected to NB-Fi modems.

The company explained that the deployment of the Advanced Gas Metering system is aimed at improving the quality of services provided to consumers. The deployment of the new Advanced Gas Metering system will increase the accuracy of gathering the readings, and consumers will pay exactly for the gas that they actually used.

Manual reading of the consumption data by a service controller every month will no longer be required. Consumers will not worry about submitting their consumption data to the gas distribution company.

The NB-Fi modems were installed inside the flats and houses, near the gas meters: in the basements, kitchens or boiler rooms. The Advanced Gas Metering solution by WAVIoT allowed bringing the traditional metering devices online and avoiding replacement of the existing gas meters. With this project, WAVIoT has proved usability, scalability and reliability of its LPWAN technology. Moldovagaz JSC wil continue to retrofit the existing gas meters to connect them to the Advanced Gas Metering system.

Moldovagaz JSC - energy company engaged in natural gas and liquefied gas transportation, construction of gas supply networks, and installation of gas equipment, as well as gasification and gas facilities maintenance in Moldova. Moldovagaz JSC supplies over 600 thousand consumers with natural gas in the Republic of Moldova.


WAVIoT IoT Platform

WAVIoT IoT Platform for the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a comprehensive solution to process all information from various IoT devices with NB-Fi transceiver that transmit data via the NB-Fi network.

WAVIoT IoT Platform can be used in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Smart Grid systems for power transmission and distribution, utility supply and management, energy services, agriculture, manufacturing, transport and logistics. WAVIoT IoT Platform collects, analyzes and stores data from millions of devices. The energy and utility sector will greatly benefit from the implementation of WAVIoT IoT Platform, as it reduces costs, increases convenience and improves security for the suppliers, customers and consumers.
WAVIoT IoT Platform is a cloud-based software that consists of the NB-Fi server (Head End System or HES) and the Meter Data Management System (MDM system or MDMS). WAVIoT IoT Platform collects and processes primary information from utility meters, sensors, gauges and other IoT devices, and provides tools for data analysis and visualization. Flexible API capabilities ensures integration with other IT systems, expanding the range of possible use cases.

WAVIoT IoT Platform can be installed in a corporate network and integrated with corporate AMI or enterprise system.
