Veolia Partners with Ledger in Their Quest to Offer Cutting-Edge Water Data Security Technology
In a bid to fit their water sensors with what’s perhaps the best technology in the industry, Veolia is enlisting the services of Ledger. Ledger, whose reputation of being a global leader in tailoring security and infrastructural solutions to several firms in the Blockchain industry, will undoubtedly to be a massive help to Veolia.
The partnership will fundamentally make it easy for Veolia – a subsidiary of Birdz, to check and always confirm the authenticity of all data collected from drinkable water. Ledger’s state-of-the-art IoT business end will handle all the processes that eventually guarantee convenient metering of remote water consumption.
One of the technologies Ledger is expected to put in place, therefore, is the highly specialized microchip. The next-generation EAL5+ Secure Element-certified microchips are tailored to work along with their unique and secure BOLOS operating system and ensure that the data collected is accurate.
The purpose of Ledger’s very secure element is to “sign and encrypt” all the data collected, before submitting it straight to the cloud-based, IOTA Blockchain. The essence of equipping all this highly foolproof process is to protect the data obtained from any falsification and ensure it paints the accurate picture of the quality of water.
Veolia, a global utility company, is confident that Ledger is the right partner for the job. The success of this partnership will also go a long way in helping cities to monitor the quality of water confidently and help spot any contaminants ahead of any dangers happening.
Both companies’ CEO are excited about the Partnership
In the wake of the formalization of this partnership, one person who is understandably elated is the CEO of Ledger, Pascal Gauthier. According to him, the fact that many industries now use the decentralized Blockchain technology while using connected devices of collecting data requires that all the data is pure and non-tampered with.
He said that his company’s IoT team is, therefore, working hard to ensure that they customize their unrivaled security solutions to suit all kinds of connected data collection devices. And the best testament to this yet will be Veolia.
Birdz, on the other hand, is solemn about their quest to offer pure and reliable data on the quality of water. This is best evidenced by the Ledger-Veolia partnership, a relationship which could potentially leave a profound impact on how water purity is ensured in the future.
Birdz, which already has thousands of water sensors across Europe, expects them to be equipped with the cutting-edge technology soon. They will start with the first few hundred of them this year before going ahead to update the entire batch later in the future.
Of course, the CEO of Birdz, Xavier Mathieu, is excited about it. He says the partnership mirrors the DNA of Veolia since they employ the latest technological solutions in their services. They will roll out the new version KAPTA water quality measurement system by the end of the year.
