Xemex demonstrates first NB IoT connectivity for smart metering in Belgium

Xemex is a leading technology company in the world of smart metering and smart use of energy. Our core business is organized around communication technology to monitor energy use. To keep this leading position Xemex evolves with the latest communication technology developments. Therefore we are proud to announce the first successful end-to-end test with NB IoT on the local network of Orange in Belgium.

This development is part of a multi vendor network test approach, where the next tests will be performed at the T-Mobile network in the Netherlands. In parallel Xemex integrates the latest NB IoT communication module with the OMNIPOWER meter platform from Danish meter vendor Kamstrup. Finally, when the tests are finished Xemex also applies this communication technology in the latest product range of compact – DIN rail based – meter modems.

Xemex believes that finally NB IoT can be a very cost efficient, secure and effective communication technology in supporting the energy transition in general and more specific in smartening future energy networks.
