Badger Meter, Inc. (NYSE: BMI) has announced it has joined the AT&T Smart City Alliance, the company said.
This collaboration will explore various alternatives to provide cities, large and small and with diverse needs and priorities, with access to world-class and smart city water metering solutions. AT&T and Badger Meter are working together on how AT&T´s extensive, reliable network and Badger Meter´s industry-leading cellular AMI solutions can join together to help water utilities benefit from the collective leadership and experience in the smart water metering solutions of today and tomorrow.
Badger Meter´s ORIONÂ® Cellular endpoints provide increased deployment flexibility, because no infrastructure is needed. This results in substantially reduced operating costs. Beyond the water utility itself, cellular solutions also create flexibility for a city. By implementing cellular networks, cities are not forced into a “one size fits all” solution. Cellular networks allow easy and long-term interoperability between multiple solutions, such as energy efficient lighting, “smart” waste management and improved leak detection in water systems.
Badger Meter is an innovator in flow measurement, control and communications solutions, serving water utilities, municipalities, and commercial and industrial customers worldwide. The company´s products measure water, oil, chemicals, and other fluids, and are known for accuracy, long-lasting durability and for providing valuable and timely measurement data.
