“We offer smart metering solutions that range from sensor development to monitoring, transmitting, and analyzing data,” says Geoffroy Duplessis, Deputy CIO at Birdz. “We have our own sensors and IoT network and also interface with other meters and low-power networks.” Birdz premiered on June 23, 2018 at the Regency Village Theater, and was released in the United States on June 29, 2018 by 20th Century Fox in 3D, RealD 3D, IMAX 3D, and Dolby Cinema. The film’s theatrical release was accompanied by a Toon Party short film, Summer Vacation, directed by Nicholas Stoller. The film premiered at the Regency Village Theater on June 2, 2018, and was released on June 8, 2018 in RealD 3D and IMAX by 20th Century Fox. Upon release, the film received mixed reviews from critics and grossed $483.2 million worldwide against its $80 million budget.
Birdz’s debut album ‘TRAIN OF THOUGHT’ was released in August 2017 through Bad Apples Music. Birdz’s debut album ‘TRAIN OF THOUGHT’ was releasedin August 2017 through Bad Apples Music.
His latest project “Place of Dreams” including world class collaborations with Mojo Juju, Ecca Vandal and Serina Pech was released in May 2019. The project has ticked over 500,000 streams on Spotify alone, and is continuing to grow throughout the country. The project has to date provided him with a nomination for the Corner Hotel Artist Of The Year award, a national tour in support of renowned rapper, Seth Sentry, high rotation on triple j and community radio nationally. Birdz’s smart metering solutions provide long-range connectivity and report usage data. Utility companies utilize the data to improve operational efficiency and customer service. Birdz has announced it expects to deploy over three million LoRa-enabled smart water meters across France by the next decade.
Birdz implements BigQuery, Cloud Dataflow, and Cloud Storage to build a data pipeline for its smart water metering services serving over 1.5 million sensors, reducing processing times. The smart water meters project will help reduce consumer bills by giving them access to real-time water usage data which they can use to identify potentials to enhance water efficiency. Birdz has released a powerful music video for his latest track ‘Bagi-la-m Bargan’ alongside his cousin Fred Leone. After two years of work since his first single, Tuzeint has returned with an EP that sounds full of authenticity and pure expression titled23. Tuzeint has collaborated with artists such as Roche Musique’s Plage 84 and FKJ, and with just three songs released under Bludot Recordings (“Honey”, “Rest Will Shine” and “Break My Love”) he has reached more than 1.5 million streams. Reducing the processing time for data gathered from an IoT network can open up new possibilities. Birdz’s legacy system included a database that was no longer coping with the volumes of data required, and was costing a lot to maintain.
“We realized that the money spent on the maintenance, upgrading, and licenses for our previous system was not cost effective, and that the answer was to move to the cloud,” says Geoffroy. On an industrial level, smart metering can not only help reduce costs, it can also serve as a safeguard against dangers to public health and safety. Formed in 2017 from a merger between two other subsidiaries, French company Birdz, a subsidiary of Nova Veolia, boasts 18 years of experience in smart water metering and has sold over 6 million modules.
