Itron to Demonstrate OpenWay Riva™ IoT Solution at Annual American Water Works Association Conference

Next Generation IoT Solution for Smart Utilities and Cities Enables the Active Network

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — June 15, 2016 — Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), a world-leading technology and services company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, announced today that it will showcase its next generation OpenWay Riva IoT solution at the Annual Conference & Exposition (ACE) held by the American Water Works Association (AWWA). Delivering true interoperability and distributed intelligence, the solution is bringing the Active Network to water utilities and smart cities.

The OpenWay Riva solution features a unified, secure, multi-purpose network for smart water applications and allows an increasingly diverse ecosystem of meters, network devices and distributed assets to communicate and interact intelligently throughout the network. This allows utilities and cities to use a single network for advanced meter infrastructure (AMI), water efficiency applications and system integrity management, including leak detection, pressure monitoring and remote disconnect. The platform provides an open application ecosystem that supports third party-developed applications, which will inspire new and innovative solutions to increase utility service levels and delivery reliability while enhancing city sustainability.

“The OpenWay Riva IoT solution helps to solve the critical challenges facing water distribution networks by enabling utilities to run multiple applications on the same standards-based IPv6 network, creating new capabilities for water efficiency,” said Paula Billingham, Itron vice president of sales, marketing and delivery for Water North America. “The solution is now available for water utilities and will revolutionize our utility customers’ network modernization efforts. The solution will support AMI requirements of today while preparing utilities for whatever the future brings.”
