UK-based narrowband RF mesh network firm CyanConnode has won an order for provision of 5,000 smart meters from India’s Larsen & Toubro.

CyanConnode will provide communications hardware and software to provide connectivity to the 5,000 smart meters.

The 5,000 units are part of a deal which includes CyanConnode providing Larsen & Toubro with some 20,000 smart meters.

The UK firm will provide the first 4,000 units within the next month.

The deal brings the total amount of smart meters CyanConnode is providing Larsen & Toubro to 31,735. Last month, the two companies signed a $3.2 million smart meter deal.

John Cronin, CyanConnode executive chairman, commented: “We are pleased to announce an order, for a new customer, from our strategic partner, L&T. The order not only validates the strength of our partnership with L&T but also the potential opportunity offered by the smart metering market in India.”
