Interoperability is a key for smart water management
TÜV SÜD will present the key outcomes of the working group “Interoperability” on the 6th annual conference of the Smart Water Networks Forum “Accelerating SMART Water” from 5-6 of April in London. SWAN is a worldwide industry forum promoting the use of data technologies in water networks.
Smart water solutions, which integrate water networks with IoT and Big Data, in order to increase efficiency and improve operational excellence, are more and more penetrating the water sector. However, the implementation of new smart technologies into legacy systems requires safe, secure, reliable and interoperable solutions. The “Interoperability” working group of the SWAN Forum (www.swan-forum.com/workgroups.html), chaired by TÜV SÜD, is addressing the current situation of and future requirements for water networks operations in terms of interoperability, to ultimately facilitate the transfer of smart innovative technologies into industrial scale operations.
