Future Water Virtual Networks Group Meeting

20th January 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

The Virtual Networks Group is a new initiative that has developed out of Future Water Networks 2020.

The challenge being addressed is to create a virtual place where water company network managers and operators, and the supply chain, can share knowledge and/or collaborate on innovations and emerging products and services aimed at specific areas (such as managing leakage, meeting leakage targets, making sewers smarter) for mutual benefit.

  • Compile and report statistics and numbers on emerging technologies and services
  • Allow water companies to communicate their future needs and requirements to the supply chain.
  • Store, share and access reports/documentation on trials and evaluations of hard and soft technologies
  • Allow water companies to collaborate and identify areas/companies who might be best placed to test different technologies (for example smart cities being used to test and evaluate technologies such as NbIOT, Lorawan other comms tech)
  • Share data, questions and ideas

  • To realise the benefits of new and emerging technologies more quickly, by sharing knowledge, evaluating and bringing them to market more quickly.
