5 . Use real-time customer data to inform network improvements and develop new services , such as smart time-of-use tariffs
A win-win solution
Using a IoT managed service lets CSPs offer their enterprise customers scalable , dynamic IoT connectivity . 3ID was able to provide its utility customers with a fully managed service to handle its smart meter rollout . Further , 3ID has built up the foundational capabilities that will allow it to roll out IoT services quickly and cost-efficiently to its enterprise customers in many other industries across the country – from agriculture and livestock management to logistics and asset management .

For CSPs and utility companies , using a worldwide IoT network grid is a win-win scenario . For CSPs , it allows them to diversify into new markets using an IoT Network- As-a-Service model , broaden their service portfolio with the addition of end-to-end connectivity and management , and enables faster rollout of IoT services to their enterprise customers .
deliver an IoT connectivity solution that would make it easy to support and manage millions of smart meters – anytime , anywhere . By using an IoT grid as a service provided by Nokia WING , this solution could be scaled up rapidly to support a huge roll out of smart meters and allow utility companies to monitor and manage IoT connectivity and all its smart meters through a single real-time interface .
Utility companies are provided robust connectivity across multiple sites and geographies , and dynamic management and monitoring of metering and consumption . Beyond the example of 3ID , there are many ways in which IoT can further the utility industry ’ s goals , it ’ s simply a matter of having reliable connectivity . p
With 3ID , its utility customers are able to use smart meters to monitor consumption and more efficiently manage electricity distribution . The technology also enables automated billing , electricity theft identification and enhanced reliability of supply for consumers .
With an IoT network grid , utilities in Indonesia are able to :
1 . Remotely monitor users ’ power consumption in real time , removing the need for monthly manual inspections of traditional meters and substantially reducing operational costs
2 . Enable full visibility of the energy grid , identifying areas of overload and underloads to manage and control power distribution more efficiently 3 . Enhance the customer experience by offering more transparent and accurate billing
4 . Improve service reliability by detecting blackouts faster and enabling preventative repairs to stop outages before they occur
