UK Power Networks significantly boosts field worker productivity with Bittium SafeMove®

Thousands of UK Power Networks engineers, who maintain and run the electricity network for 8.1 million homes and businesses in London, the South East and East Anglia using mobile data networks for connectivity, are now enjoying 95% connectivity in the field thanks to a pioneering Mobile Improvement Programme and Bittium SafeMove® remote access and connectivity Analytics software.

UK Power Networks field engineers send and receive maps, data and job information over wireless and wired networks across the South East of the UK and good end-to-end connectivity is critical to their role. The Mobile Improvement Programme, led by the mobile support team at UK Power Networks with the goal of improving overall network connectivity, has helped speed up the flow of information to customers; reduced mobile data costs; and increased productivity.
