EMR’s managing director, Mark Quinn today presented to over 40 delegates at a major UK water industry conference.
The conference, entitled ‘Water: Process Control and Automation Engineering for the Water Industry’ and organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology is one of the most important events in the UK water industry’s calendar.
At a dedicated workshop, facilitated by the organisers, Mark presented on the future of digital polling radio in the UK utility water sector. He explored many aspects of the topic including next generation telemetry network and the drivers for change, the challenges of existing technologies and architecture, designing the engineer-led solution, RF network planning and engineering and managing the migration process.
Commenting on the session, Mark said: “It was clear from the level of engagement from delegates that many utilities are struggling with the question of managing and future-proofing their telemetry networks. As IP networks gather pace, many utilities are faced with issues around protecting existing network investment and preparing the ground for future technology developments.”
This year’s conference took place in Stratford on Avon, UK.
