Especially for large companies that manage infrastructure, such as IPTO, can make a decisive contribution to the monitoring and management of networks in real time, adding to flexibility, security and quality of services. Especially the solutions that use the technological possibilities of the Internet of Things can transform the energy networks into Smart Grid. The contribution of the OTE Group in this project confirms our position in the market as a reliable partner, with high know-how. We stand by every business and organization, public or private, that wants to enter the new digital age. “
