Telit and Cresatech IoT
Using Telit’s IoT technologies, Cresatech is enabling utilities providers to mitigate the operational and safety risks resulting from copper theft
Cresatech, the specialist in continuous and real-time M2M communication technology, today announces it is partnering with Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable the real-time monitoring of critical electricity distribution infrastructure.
Copper theft has plagued utility providers over recent years, and often goes unnoticed until things go wrong. For example, until now, those operating in the electricity sector would have been blind to copper theft until a fault occurred, leaving both its employees and the wider public exposed to the potentially deadly combination of live electricity and unearthed equipment. By using Cresatech’s CuTS monitoring solution utility providers know immediately where substation safety has been compromised and take the important corrective action, restoring normal service and mitigating risk.
Powered by Telit’s IoT modules and IoT Portal, Cresatech’s CuTS solution uses edge computing connectivity to provide a real-time status dashboard and generate alerts when substation earthing is damaged or stolen. Using secure wireless communication, Cresatech’s solution integrates seamlessly into Telit’s IoT Portal bringing its monitoring sensors online and providing utility service providers up-to-the-minute detailed information on the status of their infrastructure. This helps utility providers maintain complete control of their infrastructure, minimizing outages, improving utility performance and customer satisfaction.
Additionally, in a world increasingly under threat of cyber-attack, it is essential for utility providers to know that the high levels of security protect any element of online connectivity. Through its work with large corporations, including manufacturing plants where digital security is critical, Telit has a proven track record that ensures a secure platform. This allows utility providers to use Cresatech’s solution with complete confidence over cyber security.
Cresatech CEO Simon Nash commented, “Our solution hinges on being able to provide our customers with secure constant connectivity to enable real-time monitoring. Working in the utilities industry we are working with some of the world’s largest and most essential companies and by partnering with Telit, we are able to ensure a quality, secure product that meets the needs of our customers.”
Sammy Yahiaoui, Telit Vice President of EMEA IoT Services Sales commented, “Cresatech is able to monitor, collect and communicate real-time data securely from exposed service sites and infrastructures in complex operational environments with Telit’s end-to-end IoT solutions. The companies together are helping customers to achieve operational, process and safety requirements that reduce cost and mitigate hazardous risks.”
Cresatech’s patented products, platforms and solutions monitor, collect and communicate real-time data securely from remote assets and infrastructure on often exposed sites providing real-time monitoring and measurement for critical processes, service availability and safety, in a variety of complex operational environments.
Cresatech specializes in continuous and real time asset monitoring, M2M communication technology and service platform solutions that address high cost, high impact operational issues within power transmission & distribution, mobile telecoms, transport and other industrial markets.
