Qualcomm Partner Launches Smart Grid Technology

2/2/11

A Jackson, MS, technology company is today launching a wireless communications platform for utility smart grids, giving San Diego’s Qualcomm a fresh opportunity to develop a vast new market for its Brew MP mobile operating system. As I reported last June, mobile applications developers have preferred other types of mobile operating systems (including Android, iPhone, and WP7). Now Mississippi-based SmartSynch says it is offering “the world’s first integrated, over-the-air application portfolio for the smart grid.” SmartSynch says its technology is intended for use by utilities and represents the first time that Qualcomm’s Brew MP has been optimized for the smart grid and machine-to-machine communications.
