NB-IoT, also known as narrowband Internet of Things technology, is a key access technology in the IoT field. Compared with wireless Internet of Things technology, it has significant advantages such as low power consumption, large capacity, high stability, and deep coverage. It can be used in smart meter reading, It is widely used in many fields such as smart parking and smart logistics. In order to promote the application of NB-IoT in subdivisions, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the 'Notice on Comprehensively Promoting the Construction and Development of Mobile Internet of Things NB-IoT' in 2017. The 'Notice' requires that the total number of NB-IoT connections exceeds 600 million by 2020. Yuan.   Take the NB-IoT smart water meter as an example. As the application of NB-IoT technology continues to mature, the traditional water industry is affected by the strong momentum of the Internet of Things, and coupled with its own difficulties and pain points, the water industry has aroused many concerns in the intelligent transformation.  As a terminal data collection device, water meters connect thousands of households. In order to collect and collect data, the most primitive method of meter reading is for meter readers to visit the meter to collect statistics. With the development of society, manual meter reading derives many disadvantages, such as low efficiency, high labor cost, error-prone data recorded, and difficult maintenance and management.   So GPRS remote meter reading came into being. It solves a series of problems of manual meter reading. It has advanced technology, higher efficiency and safer than manual meter reading. However, GPRS remote meter reading also has shortcomings that make it impossible to promote it on a large scale, such as the small user capacity of the communication base station, high power consumption, and poor signal. The remote meter reading based on NB-IoT technology solves this problem well. NB-IoT remote meter reading inherits the GPRS remote meter reading function and also has massive capacity. The communication user capacity of the same base station is GPRS remote meter reading. 10 times of the power consumption; lower power consumption, the standby time of the NB-IoT terminal module can be more than ten years under the same environmental conditions; the new technology signal coverage is stronger (can cover indoors and basements), etc.   With the increasing maturity and improvement of flow measurement technology, network communication technology, automatic control technology, GIS geographic information technology, micro-power power supply technology, cloud computing technology, etc., NB-IoT smart water meters have become a hot spot and inevitable development in the smart water market.   President Li Qiangzu said that in China, on average every 5 people need a water meter. Smart meter reading data connections are large and the amount of data transmitted each time is small. Therefore, water meters can be said to be the most typical application field of NB-IoT technology.   At present, according to the news from the domestic market, there are many domestic water supply companies that are interested in using NB-IoT smart water meters. In addition, with the successive introduction of policies such as 'one household, one meter, NB-IoT smart water meters will usher in a broad space for development. The 'Outline of the 13th Five-Year Development Plan for my country's Water Meter Industry' pointed out that during the '13th Five-Year Plan' period, the sales revenue of smart water meters (including smart application systems) in my country will account for 40% of all water meter sales. my country will add more than 150 million smart water meters, corresponding to an industry scale of more than 40 billion yuan.   At present, the NB-IoT smart water meter, a leading domestic smart water meter enterprise, has taken the lead in commercial use, and its market share cannot be underestimated in the future. A few days ago, a consortium formed with Shanghai Energy and Hydropower Integration Co., Ltd. won the bid for the Shanghai Urban Investment Water (Group) Co., Ltd. Water Supply Branch '2018 Shanghai Urban Investment Water (Group) Small-caliber Internet of Things (NB-IoT) Electronic Remote Water Meter Procurement and installation projects'.   There is no doubt that the direction of the NB-IoT smart water meter is certain, and the benefits it brings are obvious. However, as the NB-IoT smart water meter adopts various advanced technologies, the accompanying cost is also increasing. Water meter companies should reflect the value of NB-IoT smart water meters by providing more value-added functions (such as water leakage alarms, abnormal water alarms, special business scenarios, etc.), so that they can be more widely accepted by water supply companies and society, rather than simply Solve the problem of door-to-door meter reading.  I believe that under the influence of smart water, the development prospects of NB-IoT smart water meters will be very broad.
