Itron to expand smart utility and city solutions via Software AG’s industrial IoT platform

Software AG and Itron have joined forces to enhance utility and city management capabilities, especially in areas with limited connectivity and power sources. According to both companies, the collaboration aims to utilize Lightweight M2M (LwM2M), an open protocol for IoT, to streamline device data integration and management.

Ty Roberts, Itron’s vice president of marketing and networked solutions, highlights the potential of this partnership to improve service delivery even in challenging environments.

“By combining Itron’s expertise in intelligently connected networks, software, services, meters and sensors with Software AG’s proven Cumulocity IoT platform, we can better deliver dependable city and utility services even in areas with intermittent connectivity and limited access to power sources,” says Roberts.

LwM2M, developed by the Open Mobile Alliance, aims to offer a cost-effective solution for managing IoT devices, particularly those with low power requirements or connected through LPWAN technologies like smart streetlights and utility meters. Adoption of this protocol allows cities and utilities to optimize operations, enhance efficiencies, and foster innovation by adhering to industry standards, the companies note.

Ricky Singh, Software AG’s vice president of IoT, Americas, emphasized the significance of Itron’s experience in advancing LwM2M adoption.

“By leveraging LwM2M through Cumulocity, one of the few full-featured commercial IoT platforms that support the protocol, Itron can connect and manage more devices and enable more use cases for its customers in a modern, scalable, and cost-effective way,” adds Singh.

The company also notes that the integration of LwM2M with Cumulocity IoT Platform signifies a milestone in IoT solution development and device management. The integration offers features such as plug-and-play integration and remote firmware updates, this technology caters to various industries including telecommunications, automotive, security, utilities, and manufacturing.

Cumulocity IoT stands out as a cloud-agnostic, hybrid platform with mature support for LwM2M, facilitating scalable and standardized device management.
