Retrofit 4G smart meter modems for 2G migration
As telcos are getting prepared for 4G, 5G shutting down 2G and 3G networks all around the world, one of the biggest challenges of the IoT world becomes how to migrate the obsolete 2G/GPRS and 3G communication devices to the latest 4G LTE technology? 4G LTE IoT devices are considered future-proof, as LTE and NB-IoT devices are working with 5G networks using the non-standalone (NSA) architecture.
Our 4G LTE smart modems provide a future-proof migration path to the higher speed LTE network with the same functionality. We offer our 4G devices with the same outfit, and 2G fallback compatibility for retrofit purposes.
The modem forms part of the AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) of a public utility company. It is suitable for remote meter readout, meter data download, and remote configuration for provider’s schedule or on-demand requests.
Our smart metering modems are fully compatible with the most popular electricity meters (Landis+Gyr, Itron, Elster/Honeywell, EMH, SAPHIR, PME-PMI,Ensor), designed to fit under the terminal covers, and addresses all technical requirements of manufacturers.
NB-IoT Devices: modems, routers, DCUs, gateways
Narrowband-IoT (LTE Cat.M, and Cat.NB) are a fast-growing industrial Low Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) technology classified as a LTE 4G and very well suited for applications that require small data transfers over a long period of time. Low amounts of transferred data results in lower operation costs. Some NB-IoT devices are designed to consume significantly less power resulting in a significantly longer battery life (10 years), which alllows for autonomous operation in remote locations with limited access power sources.
4G LTE IoT devices are considered future-proof, as LTE-M and NB-IoT devices are working with 5G networks using the non-standalone (NSA) architecture.
Advantages of NB-IoT:
WM Systems has years of experience in developing NB-IoT devices (routers, industrial modems) and smart metering modems). We offer a wide range of M2M product for this cellular network: smart meter modems, routers, transmitters.
High-quality IoT and IIoT routers for industrial applications.
These devices are able to manage and control complex connected environments by aggregating and transmitting sensor data, as well as translating communication protocols serving as a bridge between IoT devices and platforms.
Our multi-protocol industrial LTE Cat.4, Cat.1, Cat.M gateways can be used in many different verticals such as smart grids, building or factory automations, fleet management, security systems, etc., but some are designed for specific applications such as substation management.
There is a growing trend in industrial IoT towards the edge as is the case in many technologies. Our Linux-based routers offer the possibility of Cloud computing functionalities, as users can develop their own apps to run on them.
Data concentrators (also known as DCUs) play an important role in industrial data (IIoT) applications. Data are collected and aggregated from several industrial devices, which are then sent to the data center or the central monitoring system. The data concentrator is part of the modern AMI infrastructure (Automated Metering Infrastructure) and the backbone of industrial automation projects.
The versatile devices that can be mounted on a DIN rail have Ethernet, RS232, RS485 ports, digital inputs, Modbus RTU/Modbus TCP Gateway, Mbus or wireless M-Bus functions for industrial data collection and automation purposes. Data transmission can be done via an RS485 connection or the usage of the wireless mobile network. Even using a single router or data concentrator (DCU) is a very cost-effective solution for collecting data from industrial devices, energy meters (electricity, water, gas, sensors) or for monitoring devices.
These products are primarily intended for places that require high availability and for professional purposes – e.g. we recommend to use for members of production and industry, maintenance and service providers.
Our data concentrators can be connected to all kinds of industrial equipment. We offer customization of our products making it possible
for our clients to use them with a combination of IT and OT protocols.
Data concentrators (or DCUs) have an important role in a variety of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. They collect and aggregate data from multiple industrial devices which can be sent to central management systems.
A data concentrator is the backbone of modern Automated Metering Infrastructures (or AMI) and industrial automation projects. Our multi-protocol data concentrator units (DCU) are capable of collecting data from industrial systems through RS485/ModBus RTU, Modbus TCP/IP, Mbus and wireless Mbus meters as well as from sensors through multiple I/O interfaces. Data transmission can be done by a wireless mobile network (LTE Cat.1 / Cat.M, Cat.NB). A single DCU + a router/modem can be a very cost-effective solution for monitoring up to 16 industrial devices (electricity/water/gas meters, sensors, etc. ).

Remote Control Solutions for Public Street Lighting
The option to remotely control public lighting systems is extremely beneficial. Besides providing better lighting service to citizens, it allows operators to optimize maintenance and energy costs.
Our products allow the automated remote control of a public street lighting system by on-demand operation, scheduled switching, or manual control, On/Off power dimming, and sophisticated programming.
We offer products that, when installed inside the existing feeder pillar cabinets, can control street lights by controlling the supplied power to the street light power cable(s). The lights can also be dimmed by lowering the supply voltage. The groups of street lights can be controlled according to reference light sensor(s), by clock and calendar, or manually through a management platform.
Operate the lighting system by remote relay control of the street lamps through the switching cabinet. Configure, manage, and monitor your lamps groups from the head-end (HES) center. Features include monitoring, supervision, and reports.
Load management is the process of controlling the demand for electricity in order to avoid overloading the grid. In the context of public street light management, load management can be used to reduce the energy consumption of street lights by dimming them or turning them off during low-traffic hours. This can be done through the use of timers, sensors, or other automated systems.
Load management can also be used to integrate solar farms into the grid. Solar farms generate electricity during the day, when demand is typically lower. By managing the load on the grid, utilities can ensure that solar power is used efficiently and that the grid remains stable.
Load control programs are a type of load management that is implemented by utilities. These programs allow utilities to control the electricity consumption of certain customers during peak demand hours. This can be done by offering financial incentives to customers who agree to reduce their electricity use, or by remotely controlling appliances or devices.
Here are some specific examples of load management in public street light management, solar farms, and load control programs by utilities:
Public street light management: In many cities, street lights are dimmed or turned off during the early morning and late evening hours when traffic is low. This can save a significant amount of energy.
Solar farms: Utilities can use load management to ensure that solar power is used efficiently and that the grid remains stable. For example, utilities may dim street lights or turn them off during the day when solar power is abundant.
Load control programs: Utilities may offer financial incentives to customers who agree to reduce their electricity use during peak demand hours. For example, a utility may offer a rebate to customers who agree to turn off their air conditioners during the hottest hours of the day.
Load management is an important tool for reducing energy consumption and improving the reliability of the power grid. It is a key part of the transition to a clean energy future.
