One of the biggest challenges within the utilities sector is the determination of robust and low- cost methods for the massive realization of the billing of its customers. The focus of this work is the study of the LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) protocol for the development of an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) to perform natural gas billing for industrial customers who have a PTZ- type gas volume broker installed in their facilities. The AMI solution consists of a remote module to collect the variables of gas measurement brokers and transmit this information using LoRaWAN and an IoT platform for communication supervision and management of measurement data.
