Cuculus’ partner network brings together the brightest minds in the industry. We believe that partnering with other specialists is essential to offering the best solutions for utilities.

Therefore, we’re delighted to welcome Float IoT to our partner network! Float IoT’s cutting-edge smart water communication devices are already in large-scale operations with the Cuculus’ ZONOS™ IoT Platform. Through our partnership, we’ll add further integrations with Float IoT’s smart water software solutions. As new use cases emerge and challenges arise, it’s our collective efforts that will drive new opportunities for the industry - and help to solve one of the biggest challenges in our lifetime, climate change.

Cuculus CEO, Kjartan V. Skaugvoll, comments saying,

“The world is struggling to fulfil the objectives of the Paris agreement, and we will need to take bold steps to get back on track for a sustainable future. In this context, we’re contributing by making energy and water infrastructures smarter.”

At Cuculus, we strive to bring the best solutions to the utility sector, and partnerships are essential to making this happen. The water sector faces tremendous challenges due to climate change and the mismanagement of water. Achieving and maintaining a reliable and affordable supply of critical goods will become a priority across the globe. Through a partnership like Cuculus and Float IoT, we can continue to bring innovative and future-proof solutions to the utility sector.

By 2050, the global population is expected to reach 9.7 billion people. At the same time, it’s predicted that by 2050 at least one in four people will experience recurring water shortages. That means it’s more important than ever before to transform how we use water. Technology has a crucial role to play when it comes to managing this precious resource.

Emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and Big Data can all help us to make managing water systems more accessible and effective. A key component of this will be the ability to make predictions when it comes to usage. Data increases our understanding of water management, which in turn helps us to better manage this resource in the future.

The ZONOS™ IoT Platform for critical infrastructure enables a more sustainable future by making water infrastructure smarter. Because the IoT Platform is an open platform agnostic to meters, meter vendors, sensors and communications solutions, it integrates with a wide-range of other devices and solutions on the market to help utilities cover current and future use cases. We understand that partners need future-proof solutions. Utilities also need the flexibility to avoid getting locked into specific technologies that could lead to higher costs or limitations in the future.

We’re excited to partner with Float IoT as we work together to address specific use cases for the water industry. As a unique and innovative solution, Float IoT has the potential to meet the needs of the market—while also helping to accelerate the transition towards carbon neutrality and enabling companies to contribute to Sustainable Development Goal 6 (clean water and sanitation).

Cuculus and Float IoT working together is a prime example of how technology suppliers can partner to achieve bold steps forward.
