Telecom operator Bharti Airtel has won a cellular IoT solution mandate with TP Western Odisha Distribution Limited to deploy IoT solutions for 2 lakh Smart Meters, the company said on Tuesday.
The company said that 70,000 electric smart meters will be delivered in the first phase.
Smart metering is one of the most rapidly advancing use case for cellular IoT in India with several power distribution companies looking forward to invest in this space to prevent revenue leakage.
Smart metering is also one of the fastest growing service lines within IoT business portfolio for Airtel.
Airtel said that it is working with multiple state utilities in Punjab, Meghalaya, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Bihar.
The centre has a big ambitious vision of replacing 30 crore conventional meters with Smart Meters in the next 5 years as part of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) initiative, the statement said.
