5G, IoT & BSS – Enablers for Smart Water Solutions
Water scarcity is one of the biggest problems faced by many societies around the world. Around two-thirds of the world’s population faces severe water scarcity for at least one month each year and this is expected to increase every year. Though there is enough water in the world, the distribution of water is uneven and most of the water is polluted. There is no doubt that 2020 has been a tough year but the COVID-19 pandemic will be remembered in history as it was a crucial moment of digitalization in the world. Here the question arises, what technologies with the advanced 5G network should be used for the effective distribution of water management…
The increase in the latest 5G technologies and their ability to work with many IoT devices are supporting digitalization across the countries. By using 5G and IoT (Internet of Things) together with BSS abilities, the distribution of water can be managed and utilized effectively. A research firm has predicted that to combat the scarcity of water, 45% of cities will adopt IoT- based technologies for the usage of water management by 2024. But how 5G and other technologies will utilize water distribution productively?

Everyone knows that modern technologies are the next phase of the industrial revolution in supporting better problem-solving. Development of smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and as a matter-of-fact greater control over water distribution; all this can be easily done with advanced technology.
5G enables the improvement of industrial wastewater management by improving the accuracy of water quality monitoring and increasing the capacity of water quality development within industrial estates. 5G helps businesses to be confident that their water usage will be properly managed and utilized even in emergencies and calamities.
5G networks along with the Internet of Things (IoT) enable the distribution of a high-efficiency monitoring system that plays a key role in the operation and management of the water grid systems. A smart adaption of 5G has a clear objective of strengthening water infrastructures and guaranteeing secure access to drink water and sanitation systems. The time has come when 5G will be able to control water resources and would provide more efficient water management.
Now the question may come to your mind how smart water solutions can be created?
The water network consists of central water storage with a complex distribution system. This makes it impossible to know what is happening to the water quality, quantity, and pressure that creates the problem in the management of the water supply system.
Smart water systems based on IoT sensors enable monitoring of network distribution to help in reducing the amount of water that’s wasted during agricultural and manufacturing processes. It also improves the efficiency of water distribution systems and alerts companies if toxins or other impurities are detected.
Let’s find out some good water use conditions:
The 5G networks along with the IoT and BSS platforms allow sustainable choices in the water monitoring systems that can be deployed to handle, monetize the distribution systems, and make investments fortune throughout the services.
BSS can assist in the setup, monetization, and settlement of the water distribution system by enabling digital associate administration capabilities, such as managing the billing system between the server and its client.
According to the UN World Water Development Report 2021, it is estimated that the world would face a 40% global water deficit by 2030. Therefore, technological advancements in the area of network services and telecom, followed by the emergence of smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT) are becoming the necessity of sustainable practices in 5G networks and smart cities.
