The problem
Development of a cheap, efficient M2M datagathering solution
ZigBee requires a large number of costly base
stations and the mesh network is unstable
when many hops are employed
NWave solves this problem with our
high-range, energy-efficient, lowcost, integrated narrow-band M2M
platform
Executive Summary
• NWave ultra-narrow band communication technology
– high range, and cost and power-efficient
• Full-cycle telecom platform ready for rapid
deployment
• Integrated solutions - from automated meters,
sensors, and base stations, to cloud-based user
interfaces
The Technology – Competing approaches
GSM/3G – needs a permanent power
connection, expensive installation and
service
ZigBee/Bluetooth – insufficient range,
high cost of multiple base stations
NWave:
- Functions autonomously > 10 years
- Range > 10 miles
- Plug & Play, cheap installation

Real-life implementation – The problem
Existing water-metering practice:
Meter readings taken in-situ by water
company staff
Meter readings communicated by phone
Invoices based on estimates recalculated
later using actuals numbers
The NWave approach:
Automated meter readings by radio
modem
Real-life implementation - Deliverables
1,500 meters equipped
with NWave modems
Consumer
3 base stations
Real estate
management company
Web cloud
Municipality
Real-life implementation - Results
Significant reduction in personnel and
man-hours
Consumers can monitor personal
consumption through web interface
Automated invoice preparation
Early detection of leakages, fraud,
excessive consumption

Comments
CAPEX
ZigBee range is < 100
meters. Mesh network
is unreliable.
Essentially the same
cost.
OPEX
ZigBee is 30x more
expensive
Thank you for your attention!
