The promotion and use of water meters is to allow people to form the ideological concept of careful planning and water conservation. At present, the water supply enterprises pay the most attention to wireless remote water meters. Wireless remote water meters include NB-IOT remote water meters, GPRS remote water meters, and LORA remote water meters.


For water supply enterprises, although the NB-IOT remote water meter started late, the application effect is better than that of the GPRS water meter. Why is this? In order to collect and collect data, the most primitive meter reading method is that meter readers data. This method is very inconvenient. Therefore, there are now a variety of remote meter reading solutions. As far as the wireless meter reading scheme is concerned, the remote meter reading of GPRS water meters started early. It solves a series of problems of manual meter reading. It is more advanced, more efficient and safer than manual meter reading. However, GPRS remote meter reading also has shortcomings that make it impossible to promote it in a large area. For example, the user capacity of the communication base station is small, the power consumption is high, and the signal is poor.

The NB-IOT remote water meter is different. It selects the mature technology of narrowband Internet of Things, which can solve the problem encountered in the process of collecting data from GPRS water meters. The NB-IoT remote water meter inherits the GPRS remote meter reading function and also has massive capacity. The communication user capacity of the same base station is 10 times that of GPRS remote meter reading; lower power consumption. Under the same environmental conditions, the standby time of the NB-IoT terminal module can be as long as more than ten years. The new technology has stronger signal coverage (can cover indoors and basements), etc.
