Smart IoT Technology for Flood and Water Level Monitoring

Posted by Kari Grosser on Sep 19, 2017 10:05:00 AM

Flooding and excessive rainfall can wreak havoc with indispensable assets and infrastructure. Water treatment plants, for example, are typically near a body of water, and thousands are located on flood plains. By tracking data like rainfall, ground saturation, and upstream water levels, industries and utilities can get early warnings about flooding and take action to protect their customers and equipment.

The Challenge

When a successful European toy manufacturer outgrew its facilities, it built a brand new campus that included the office, manufacturing and warehouse space. Since copper Ethernet cable has a range limitation of about 100 meters, multi-mode fiber was used to network the three new buildings. Multi-mode fiber provided the necessary range, immunity to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), speeds of up to 40 GB/s and high security. As the facility received daily visits from toy sales representatives and other outsiders, security was an important consideration.
