Although adoption of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) among water utilities is growing, there are still a wide range of misconceptions about the technology, its cost, and its effectiveness. Most of these objections are based on outdated information, primarily informed by early iterations of AMI. One of the biggest changes to AMI technology has been the availability of Network as a Service (NaaS). NaaS means the water utility does not need to build and maintain a communications network. Instead, a third-party vendor owns and manages the communications network.  In the early days of AMI, water utilities were right to be skeptical of the value and cost. Technology advances, including NaaS, means there’s no longer a reason to be skeptical.  The sooner water utilities get started with AMI, the sooner they can realize the benefits. In this article, learn about common misconceptions regarding AMI among water utilities, and why modern AMI technology, in particular NaaS, overcomes them.
