New York City is the largest city in the U.S. with a population of 8.5 million people, requiring 95 pumping stations to keep the city clean and safe, representing a problem present in every large city.
With over 250 skyscrapers, signal interference is common between remote pump stations and water treatment plants — key assets utilities need to communicate with.
New York, like many other cities in the U.S., relies on monitoring and seeing data at those pump stations to ensure the safety of one of their most critical assets — water.
By digitizing industrial communications, cities can have a secure, long-distance system to connect pump stations to water and wastewater plants, allowing them to grab data when difficult environments make it hard for critical machines to talk to each other.
