New York, USA and Bangalore, India – December 15, 2021: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a global leader in information technology, consulting and business process services company, has unveiled an Internet of Things (IoT) solution that enables municipalities to monitor their water systems in real time, even in an aging infrastructure. As climate change drives extreme weather, cities worldwide are looking to update their water and sewage infrastructure to respond to this crisis faster while ensuring the health and safety of their residents and protecting the environment.
The new IoT platform - Wipro Sewage Monitor, leverages advanced connected sensors and a robust Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) platform to generate real-time insights that will enable organizations to continuously monitor water systems and perform proactive maintenance. This helps utilities and cities alike to comply with environmental water policies, while safeguarding communities and municipal workforces.
Wipro has entered into a partnership with Italy-based UMPI, a manufacturer of intelligent products and systems, who will use the Wipro Sewage Monitor to empower water companies in Europe to improve accuracy and efficiency as they monitor their systems. The Wipro Sewage Monitor is equipped with a range of advanced IoT sensors, including millimetre wave radar capabilities and accurate temperature gauges that can be easily installed even in aging water systems. The solution also supports utilities’ efforts to protect the environment, as it enables them to take the necessary steps to prevent environmentally harmful wastewater pollutants from escaping the utility network.
“Ours is a country where attention to water resources is particularly high. UMPI is honored to bring to Italy an innovative product like Wipro Sewage Monitor, which has immediately proved to help optimize system and management costs,” said Davide Piccaluga, Chief Technology Officer, UMPI.
“IoT solutions like the Wipro Sewage Monitor show the impact and benefits that the addition of smart capabilities can have on vital infrastructure. With Wipro’s EngineeringNXT platform of offerings, we continue to invest in technologies that can help accelerate digital transformation and work with our partners in the public and private sector to keep moving forward,” said Yves-Antoine Brun, Vice President and European Head - Engineering and R&D Services, Wipro Limited.
Certified by leading regulators, Wipro Sewage Montor functions at low cost for up to seven years of battery life. This flexibility allows it to increase the efficiency of the municipal water system and reduce operational costs.
