WATER / WASTEWATER


Connecting and creating digital water treatment and distribution systems

Today’s water industry leaders are searching for smarter solutions to drive efficiency and innovation.

For many plants, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the answer, providing deeper operational insights that power greater uptime, site automation, and real-time performance management. FreeWave enables water utilities to take advantage of these opportunities, today.

Add a Smart Layer to Rapidly Advance Water/Wastewater Treatment Efficiencies

FreeWave’s wireless networking solutions are proven at reliably connecting diverse water utilities assets from basins to pump stations, water tanks, and more — all across expansive, rugged areas. Now, we’re enhancing that connectivity through our IQ-infused offerings which add edge computing for data processing at the source, where these assets physically reside. Our edge computer and edge intelligent radios can be used to rapidly upgrade existing SCADA systems with IIoT capabilities at a fraction of the cost to replace PLCs or RTUs already in the field. Edge processing can free up 80% or more of existing bandwidth, allowing plants to immediately get more data from the same devices and with much lower latency than typical poll-response topologies.
