Technology and innovation for sustainable water use
Optimising the use of such a scarce resource as water, essential in the production of goods, has led companies to develop innovative projects to reduce the water footprint through the digitalisation of processes. The commitment to the use of technological innovation tools has fostered sustainable trends in the water sector, to improve processes in the water industry.

The versatility of technological advances has boosted the revolution in the use of 5G technology in the sector. The application of 5G, along with different advances in other areas such as sound, have come to revolutionise the industry and in particular, the water sector. Today at DAGA, we will look at the adaptability actions that are taking place within the water industry and how the field of R&D&I has grown. 

Are you ready to see what the future holds?

Exclusive networks portions 

Critical infrastructure operators will be able to apply the concept of network portions and have their own communications infrastructure. However, the implementation of robust and pre-defined quality parameters will be vital when designing and managing useful cases for these communication networks.

Safe decisions close to the sensors

Edge computing technology and the increase in the volume of information will make possible to define algorithms to make secure decisions closer to the sensors that generate the information. The 5G technology will not only allow the use in real-time of the data from the business process but will also help to improve the performance of algorithms for process automation, energy efficiency or infrastructure maintenance.

Enhanced security protocols

As infrastructure digitisation advances, managers must be prepared to stop cyber-attacks that could put the public at risk. The 5G technology provides a higher degree of confidence, with enhanced security protocols, and also ensures network ubiquity and seamless coverage.

Connecting millions of devices

One of the most important new features of 5G technology is the connection of millions of devices in a small area, thanks to MIoT (Massive Internet of Things). This is possible because this technological breakthrough can support millions of sensors per km2, ensuring the coexistence of the smart metering accountants with the digitisation of other accountants and smart devices in streets and homes.

Extending the useful life of sensors

One of the key functions of 5G is the ability to reduce battery consumption by up to 50%, which directly impacts the lifetime of sensors. Extending the useful life reduces costs and increases the sustainability of the active sensor fleet.

Real-time remote control

With the advent of 5G, autonomous operation of irrigation and plants care, as well as robot driving in Industry 4.0, will become common. Similarly, in the area of wastewater, it is expected that in the future it will be possible to inspect sewage systems using drones in real-time, thus achieving better visibility in areas that are not suitable for operators. 

Remote technical support

Remote technical support is one of the great advances of 5G technology. It is true that augmented reality calls are an interesting alternative to face-to-face technical support, as they make possible to access highly specialised knowledge from anywhere in the world, but one of the real impacts, which will make a difference in the agricultural sector, is to enable the use of autonomous vehicles for sowing and collecting. 

DAGA and its commitment to water management

Digitalisation is a key factor to make the water sector more sustainable and to lead industrial management to the maximum optimisation of water systems

With more than six decades of experience, at DAGA we focus on promoting sustainable and efficient management to reduce the impact on our planet. Therefore, we move forward with the vision of being a referent in this type of solutions for wastewater treatment plants, irrigation and intensive water management industries, to be a leading company at European and worldwide level. 

Our catalogue of DAGA products reflects the values of an industrial group committed to the environment and, in particular, to the water cycle.
