3 Ways the IoT Improves the Utilities Industry
- Sep 6, 2019 8:54 pm GMT
The Internet of Things, or IoT, has been around since the 1990s. However, it didn't get much recognition until much later in its existence. Currently, it's implemented in almost every business decision and has become a source for vast amounts of information. Any industry can find useful information in the IoT, and one that's improving a lot from this data is utilities.
The utility industry's main goal is to maintain public infrastructure while providing the service it's there for. Everything from electricity to water to sewage goes under the utility umbrella, but they haven't seen much impact from IoT until recently. Utilities have been a part of civilization as far back as societies have formed, so bringing in the IoT sounds like it could make things more complicated. In actuality, the IoT can streamline things and finally create modern infrastructure for our technological world.
