e& enterprise, part of e& (formerly known as Etisalat Group), has entered into a five-year partnership with Etihad Water and Electricity (Etihad WE), as part of its long-term vision to drive digital transformation through the smarter use of the latest technologies.

Through the partnership, e& enterprise will enable Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) by replacing old legacy meters and connecting new as well as advanced smart meters to the recently deployed digital platform to gain real-time information and proactive alerts on the consumption level.

The company said that “the long-term project will involve replacement of existing meters to new smart meters connecting 750 K meters to the digital platform, building M2M (3G/4G) network to enable connectivity, onboarding the smart meters on AMI both for building and villas across the Northern Emirates and end-to-end program management.”

Owned by the Emirates Investment Authority, Etihad WE has already installed 500,000 smart meters, with the goal of installing 750,000 smart meters in total, as per the statement.
