Vodafone Spain has signed an agreement with Madrid water management authority Canal de Isabel II and smart meter provider Contazara to test remote water meter reading using the operator's NB-IoT (narrowband Internet of Things) network. The pilot consists of deploying 64 NB-IoT communication modules to remotely read around 1,200 meters distributed throughout the Madrid area, including places such as the city's Royal Botanical Garden or the Prado Museum. The aim is to test the feasibility of NB-IoT technology to enhance the efficient management of water consumption, said Vodafone.
