Arqiva Limited Key Developments

Panasonic Avionics Selects Arqiva to Provide in-Flight Wi-Fi

Panasonic Avionics has selected Arqiva to provide its hosting, connectivity and teleport uplink services via Telesat's new High Throughput Satellite (HTS) Telstar 12 Vantage. Through the multi-year contract Arqiva will deliver a range of mobility services for Panasonic, including in-flight Wi-Fi, which will operate around the clock from its Chalfont Grove teleport site near London. Signals are extended to the Panasonic Network over the Arqiva managed core network ArqNet, a 2.5 Tbps resilient transmission network. Arqiva's T12 Vantage 7.6 meter Earth station is configured to access the entire Telstar 12 Vantage frequency range and multiple beams.

Anglian Water Selects Arqiva Limited to Deliver Smart Water Metering Trial

Arqiva Limited announce that it have been selected by Anglian Water, to deliver and monitor a smart water metering fixed network trial as part of Anglian Water's plans for a long-term smart metering programme. In partnership with utility technology provider Sensus, the four-year contract will see Arqiva build the fixed network infrastructure to facilitate the deployment and operation of 7,500 new smart water meters in and around Newmarket, Suffolk. Newmarket is the site of a project that Anglian Water is calling its ‘Innovation Shop Window’ – a place where the company will test and showcase its latest innovation projects, as it seeks to create the water company of the future. Three of the key objectives of the Shop Window are to achieve 100% customer satisfaction, ensure zero bursts or leakage and reduce water consumption to 80 litres per head, per day. The trial has been set up to demonstrate the contribution that fixed network smart water metering can make towards these goals. Throughout the trial, Sensus smart water meters covering both residential and non-residential properties will transmit hourly usage readings via network back to Anglian Water. The data will enable Anglian Water to better understand customer water consumption, and to quickly identify unusual patterns of use that might indicate a burst or a leak. This proactive method of identifying leaks means Anglian Water’s teams can get out and fix them sooner. If, on inspection, the leak is found to be on a customer’s private pipe network, the company can let the customer know so that they can get it repaired. The two-way communications capability of the fixed network will also enable Anglian Water to remotely reconfigure meters to deliver more frequent meter readings (every 15 minutes) for even more accurate identification of system leakage. It is intended that customers taking part in the trial will have online access to their consumption data, and will be given guidance and advice to minimise their water consumption.
