More than 150 utility executives honor FlexNet network with Best Smart Utility Solution award
Smart utilities are only as good as the networks that connect their assets, and the Sensus FlexNet communication network has long served as the most advanced smart utility network available. For this reason and others, Sensus, a Xylem brand, has been honored by more than 150 utility executives with the Best Smart Utility Solution Award at the 2019 Smart Utility Summit (SUS).
“Utilities continue to invest in smart communication technology to help lower costs, improve operational efficiency and deliver greater benefits to their customers,” said Sensus Vice President of Product Management Randolph Wheatley. “The FlexNet system provides fast, reliable and secure access to data for utilities. It is a tremendous honor that utility executives recognized our technology with this award.”
The FlexNet system is a two-way network that provides secure communication over a licensed spectrum. When used to connect Sensus smart meters and sensors, in conjunction with Sensus Analytics, the solution provides utilities with the data and insights they need to become smarter at every point.
The 2019 Smart Utility Summit was recently held in Phoenix, Arizona. At the event, more than 60 smart utility technology providers competed in three award categories—Best Smart Utility Solution, Smart Utility Vendor to Watch and Best Overall Boardroom Presentation—voted on by more than 150 executives from electricity utilities across North America. In addition to being named Best Smart Utility Solution, Sensus was also recognized with the Best Overall Boardroom Presentation award.
