Kurita Water enables real time monitoring of water conditions

Business Need

Kurita Water launched remote monitoring of water treatment conditions in the 1990s. This was the start of the S.sensing® solution. But as this technology spread to more customers, it needed to obtain greater amounts of data even more quickly. Kurita’s conventional remote monitoring system faced difficulties in satisfying this need. With a desire to expand globally and ensure high customer satisfaction throughout the world, Kurita sought out a provider who could provide global reach, high levels of security and the potential to cut both communication and operating costs.

Solution

Combining the compression and encryption technologies developed by Toshiba with the Vodafone IoT Managed Connectivity Platform provides Kurita Water with flexible data communication on a global level. The S.sensing® solution is connected via the MachineLink 3G Plus, loaded with the Vodafone IoT global SIM. This allows Kurita to manage communication with their devices efficiently, activating SIMs remotely and monitoring water conditions wherever devices are located in the world. With Vodafone and Toshiba as their partners, Kurita plans to expand S.sensing® into 30 countries around the world in about 10,000 locations.

Business Benefits

  • Devices can be managed via the Vodafone Managed IoT Connectivity Platform, helping eliminate wasted communications connections and allows cost reduction on a global scale

"Unexpected situations often come up in the process of developing a global business. Toshiba and Vodafone IoT are constantly envisaging what might happen, and are ready with measures to resolve problems as quickly and accurately as possible. This gives us peace of mind." Kuniyuki Takahashi,
