Jan. 22, 2015

RALEIGH, N.C. — Sensus will provide the Long Beach Gas & Oil Department (LBGO) with its smart communications network.

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Long Beach Gas & Oil Department (LBGO), located in Long Beach, California, has selected Sensus for its smart communications network, according to a press release.

The smart communications network from Sensus will help LBGO improve customer service, operational efficiency and strategic planning at the municipality, which serves more than half a million customers, stated to a press release.

The release continued that the program will include the Sensus FlexNet™ network, 50,000 new Sensus gas meters and managed software services.

"Sensus has proven itself as a strategic partner throughout our metering program. We are thrilled to continue this partnership and are confident that FlexNet, managed software services and network hosting will deliver the results we need," said LBGO Department Director Christopher Garner. "We chose Sensus because the minimal infrastructure of FlexNet enabled us to deploy in three years, but the scalability of Sensus' technology enables us to benefit from the system for the next 30 years and beyond."

LBGO's deployment will last around three years with completion projected for 2016, noted the release.
