Neptune® NR900® IoT Gateway

Get the most value from your current endpoint infrastructure and workforce through Neptune R900 Systems that allow you to migrate at your own pace from walk-by and mobile Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) to Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). You choose the optimal reading solution without special reprogramming of R900 endpoints.

The R900 IoT Gateway and compatible LoRaWAN™ network provide a secure and scalable IoT network for Smart Water automation, incorporating the Neptune R900® endpoint. Support of AMI functionality can be achieved rapidly.


Quickly deploy and operate your own Smart Water AMI network with a LoRaWAN™ gateway that leverages the Neptune R900® system to easily view metering data.

Deploy a Smart Water AMI Network with LoRaWAN™ IoT

Water utilities can quickly deploy and operate their own Smart Water AMI Network with a ruggedized LoRaWAN™ gateway that employs the open standards LoRaWAN™ protocol and network architecture. Leveraging the R900® System, utilities can easily view collected metering data to improve operations, quickly resolve customer questions and complaints, and optimize distribution system management.


Deploy with Confidence

Get the most value from your current endpoint infrastructure and workforce through Neptune R900 Systems that allow you to migrate at your own pace from walk-by and mobile Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) to Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). Providing fixed network functionality, the R900® IoT Gateway is easily integrated into the R900 System. You can choose the optimal reading solution as needed – without the requirement for special reprogramming of R900 endpoints. The R900 IoT Gateway supports the R900 System’s 1-Watt LoRa® fixed network endpoint messaging, extending coverage while reducing AMI infrastructure costs.

Ease of Deployment and Scalability

The R900 IoT Gateway and compatible LoRaWAN™ network provide a secure and scalable IoT network for Smart Water automation, incorporating the Neptune R900® endpoint. Support of AMI functionality can be achieved rapidly. The R900 IoT Gateway comes in a compact, ruggedized enclosure for easy deployment for wide-area-network (WAN) connectivity for Smart Water AMI applications. The gateway and R900 System provide a scalable IoT solution to support millions of messages per day using LoRa’s adaptive data rate (ADR) technology to optimize data rates, connectivity, and capacity of the network.
