What is iNet? iNet brings together network-relevant information, extracts insight from it, and makes it available in ways that make it actionable

The challengesThese are the problems our clients are typically trying to solve by using iNet

Ever-increasing:

Sources of data

Volume of data

Places where data resides

Number of alarms

Number of false positives/negatives

Not enough people/time to:

Turn that data into actionable insight

Manage those devices and ensure they are operational

No improvement in:

Time to identify and resolve issues; still reliant on customer calls

Asset maintenance; still time-based

Reporting on network performance; still NRW based on assumptions

Efficiency of find & fix leakage activity; still traditional area by area

The Solution

SOFTWARE THAT:
Works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
Works with a high degree of accuracy
Derives insight
Delivers it in one place
Is in the most useful format

 

How iNet works

Click on the steps below

  • 1

    Collect data at specified intervals from points of interest on the network

  • 2

    Send data at specified intervals

  • 3

    Receive data - i2O software service

  • 4

    Ingest data from third party loggers

  • 5

    Derive actionable insight

  • 6

    Dispatch maintenance crew only when needed

Key functionality

INET

Smart alarms

i2O is already assisting clients to automate the setting of threshold alarms. Our clients are moving quickly to network-wide monitoring. It is no longer practicable to manually set thresholds individually for hundreds or thousands of loggers and maintain these thresholds to ensure their relevance to changing network conditions. iNet enables alarms to be viewed in their geographical content.

INET

Event detection

By the time a customer calls, it’s too late. iNet uses historical data to learn normal patterns and flags abnormal patterns so they can be investigated and resolved before they escalate into problems that affect customers.

INET

Transient detection

Transients do damage to networks. Clients know they have them. But where? i2O loggers collect maximum, minimum and standard deviation pressure values in each measurement interval. iNet automates and prioritises the detection of transients using this data.

INET

PRV condition monitoring

iNet allows you to maintain PRVs much more cost-effectively based on their condition rather than on time/risk or failure. Identified causes of failure include:

  • PRVs requiring maintenance
  • Bypassed PRVs
  • PRVs unable to fully close or open
  • PRVs incorrectly setup
INET

Estate management

Monitoring devices are proliferating on the network. But are they working and returning data? iNet identifies these devices and the nature of this problem.
