ALMANAC knowledge used in the deployment of capillary networks in Italy
In co-operation with the Italian Utility for Water, Gas and Electricity (IREN), Telecom Italia and its affiliated company Olivetti will be deploying technologies for capillary networks involving 11,526 gas meters, 4600 water meters and a total of 22,135 sensors in Genova city, Parma city as well as in the Reggio Emilia and Scandiano areas.
The deployment is a pre-deployment, partially funded by the Italian Authority for Electricity, Gas and Water (AEEGSI) which aims at making 12 million gas meters in Italy (60 % of all meters) smart by 2018.
The capillary network technologies used in the pre-deployment are based on the same technologies as the ones used in ALMANAC prototypes: the 169 MHZ frequency and WMBus protocol, and Telecom Italia is leveraging the knowledge and the prototypes developed during the Almanac project for the pre-deployment.
