Arqiva Machine to Machine

When Arqiva won the UK Government contract to roll out the network infrastructure to allow for 53 million gas and electricity meters to be installed in homes and businesses by the end of 2020, Daly International was only too ready to help with the challenge!

The Smart Metering project has provided Daly International UK opportunities to work on a number of new and exciting projects related to the Internet of Things (IOT), made possible through an ever expanding network of sites and micro cells that will continue to transform the way we, and the devices we use communicate.
