Hyderabad: Sensus, a USA-based global supplier of utility-grade communications systems and smart meters, on Wednesday announced the opening of its first global support center here.
According to an official release, the new center represents a strategic investment for Sensus and will support business operations in India and across the globe. “With this global center, Sensus will bring forth its best practices and cutting-edge technology, better governance, quality infrastructure and uninterrupted utility services.
Utilities must demand smart communication technology that is dedicated, secure and reliable, and is governed by strict service level agreements and performance targets,” the release said.
Amit Vaidya, Director, Strategic Customer Team, Sensus India, said, the new support center re-affirms the company’s commitment for a long-lasting partnership with India. “Sensus solutions, all driven from a single communications platform, increase efficiency on a large scale.
With initiatives like the National Smart Grid Mission, we can play a significant role in bringing India the right solutions and technology that will be easily adaptable, helping to making data-driven decisions that reduce water leaks, limit power outages, ensure the safe delivery of natural gas and turn a streetlight into a beacon of technology, he added.
For emerging markets like India, smart grid technologies are essential to avoid lock-in of outdated energy infrastructure, attract new investment streams and create efficient and flexible grid systems that will be able to accommodate both rising electricity demand and power from a variety of power sources, he said.
