Grid Wide:

Take a smart, integrated approach to
proactively manage your natural gas
system and monitor infrastructure
with near real-time data.

  • Smarter gas meters and natural gas systems to fuel grid transformation

  • With demand for natural gas on the rise and millions of miles of aging distribution infrastructure needing to be maintained, utilities are looking to the Internet of Things (IoT) to evolve the industry. Grid Wide: Intelligent Gas provides a fully managed, scalable, secure, cloud-based platform-as-a-service model for you to modernize your gas system.

    How does it address your industry needs?

    The Grid Wide: Intelligent Gas solution helps ensure that your utilities can conserve resources. Remain focused on identifying and solving metering issues around high usage, tampering, flow and pressure, while improving meter reading safety. Pay as you go to control costs and lower expenditures.


  • Smart gas metering

    We’ve simplified smart metering by integrating all of the essential hardware, software, open and proprietary protocols, and 4G LTE components into a single, cloud-based, IoT platform-as-a-service solution.

    • Manage billing, operational meter and sensor data, and customer service remotely
    • Detect anomalies in meter readings  
    • Conserve natural resources
    • Integrate payers and providers for greater transparency
    • Leverage compatibility with existing infrastructure


  • Distribution monitoring and control

    System anomalies, events and failures lower revenue and frustrate customers. Take back control over your systems with near real-time data to help mitigate loss and boost satisfaction. 

    • Identify delivery system anomalies and isolate issues to help reduce service disruptions
    • Monitor performance and upgrades based on usage versus time
    • Access scheduled and on-demand data, and receive event alerts and notifications
    • Receive actionable insights and data in industry-standard formats


  • Integrated reporting, dashboards and analytics

    How many times have you encountered customer service problems that you weren’t aware of and would not have known about, if not for a customer phone call? Our dashboards, integrated reporting, data analytics, event alerts and notifications can increase insight into your gas system, helping you improve efficiency and customer service.

    • Enhance meter reading safety and maintenance  
    • Proactively manage resources and assets


  • Security infrastructure services

    Smart-grid digital technology delivers many cost-saving and conservation benefits but carries greater potential cyberthreats. Our security services can help you identify and mitigate risks to your infrastructure and devices, enhancing the overall safety of the grid.

    • Implement public key infrastructure (PKI) and pre-shared key (PSK) services
    • Manage device identification
    • Manage digital signing and authenticity services
