“The Company is bullish about the opportunities in the smart metering segment. We are expecting large-scale requirement for smart metering solutions in the coming years….”

HPL Electric and Power has received approval and production clearance from a private distribution company for implementation of narrow band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) based smart meters in parts of the national capital.

Developed in-house at HPL’s R&D facility at Gurugram, the smart meters are both 4G and 5G compatible. The company noted that these have the ability to offer a dedicated channel for smart metering. These also can avoid any reduction in performance arising out of obstruction or intergerence due to congestion in the public network.
