Wyld and DEWA Launch Satellite IoT Network for Utilities Sector

May 20, 2022
DEWA becomes the world's first utility to use nanosatellites and IoT technology to maintain and plan its networks.

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) launched its first satellite—called DEWA-SAT1—and Wyld Networks has partnered with DEWA R&D Centre and Infra X, the telecoms arm of Digital DEWA, to develop IoT terminals to support the new satellite IoT network. Wyld is responsible for providing the satellite IoT terminals for the network.

With the launch of its DEWA-SAT 1 nanosatellite earlier this year, DEWA will become the world’s first utility company to use nanosatellites to improve maintenance and planning of electricity and water networks. Wyld delivered the first test satellite terminals ahead of the launch of the service.

DEWA’s Space-D program will use satellites and ground-station infrastructure to monitor electricity and water networks. For example, it will employ thermal imaging to detect thermal fingerprints in high-voltage transmission lines, substations, buildings, and solar power stations.
