STAFF REPORT IBD: Telenor Pakistan has become the largest Automated Meter Reading (AMR) solutions provider in the country with the ongoing deployment of 17,000 smart meters in five cities of Pakistan including Islamabad, Hyderabad, Multan, Lahore and Peshawar.
Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from water meter or energy metering devices (gas, electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing.
This system has been deployed in five distribution companies in collaboration with International Resources Group, an American enterprise which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Engility Corporation. This initiative will help reduce distribution losses, electricity theft and increasing labor productivity by automating monitoring, meter reading and load management.
Talking about the impact of the project, Irfan Wahab, Chief Marketing Officer, Telenor Pakistan, said, “The automated smart meters are going to be instrumental in enhancing working efficiencies of energy companies while consumers will also benefit from this with better load management in the long run.”
He said that the company is the largest mobile data connectivity provider in the country and leads from the front in providing dedicated M2M (Machine to Machine) based connectivity solutions to business customers nationwide.
