Scott WillsThis is a guest post written by Scott Wills, Marketing Director at Datazeo, a Juniper Systems partner. Datazeo specializes in providing smart meter-reading solutions for water utilities.

With water shortages prevalent in many areas across the country, the monitoring and management of water usage is an increasingly pertinent topic. For water utilities, having water usage data from various service areas that is both current and easily accessible within a single system is essential. However, it’s also a persisting challenge, due to the fact that multiple water meter reading technologies and systems are being employed at any one time, forcing utilities companies to manage each system separately.

Futura Systems pole stakingIf you’re unfamiliar with pole staking, it’s a utilities application that involves mapping a new utility pole run, ensuring that the distance between each pole is up-to-code and geo-located, and then recording the GPS coordinates of where each pole should be placed.

Futura Systems provides pole staking and other enterprise utility GIS solutions for electric and utilities applications and recently became a partner of Juniper Systems. Their newest pole staking application, called GPSStaker, enhances their current solution—FuturaStake, an automated staking extension that builds on the Esri ArcMap foundation. GPSStaker enables utility field designers to GPS-stake a job on the Archer 2™ using ArcPad 10. The data is then automatically synced back into FuturaStake.  Futura Systems is formally launching this mobile app that runs on the Archer 2 at their user conference in August. Continue Reading…

This week, Juniper Systems got a call from Esri’s Wildland Fire Specialist. He asked if we could lend them a few Mesa® Rugged Notepads to help with disaster management in the Colorado flooding areas. Shortly after speaking with him, we boxed up 10 Mesas and shipped them off to Colorado, and we’ve received several updates that they are being put to good use.

Upon receiving the Mesas, designated officials were first given training on how to properly use and collect data with the rugged handhelds.
