BURLINGAME, California, November 1, 2010: Pacific Controls Inc unveiled a live demonstration of its Galaxy(TM) Service Delivery Platform (SDP) in Sprint's (NYSE: S) M2M Collaboration Center, a place where machine-to-machine and embedded computing will come to life in direct collaboration with leading names in networking, computing and applications technology. The Center based in Burlingame, Calif., opened Oct. 25, 2010.
This permanent installation will allow Sprint business customers and development partners to learn about the ground breaking Galaxy(TM) SDP functionality and test it live.
Pacific Controls' Galaxy(TM) SDP delivers building operating intelligence and capabilities, enabling the smart grid to be even smarter. Currently, smart-grid technology stops at the electric utility meter, greatly limiting electric power grid control functionality and capabilities. Galaxy(TM) enables building owners and operators to collaborate with their electric utility to reduce loads during peak periods and optimize the flow of electricity through the utility's grid throughout the day, while sustaining the productivity of their business operations.
Dilip Rahulan, Chairman and CEO of Pacific Controls, said, "We are pleased to be able to collaborate with Sprint at this level. We intend to revolutionize the way managed energy services and smart grid solutions are delivered using ICT and M2M technology. The Sprint M2M Collaboration Center will help us by providing an opportunity to match our resources with a combination of 3G, 4G and IP capabilities that only Sprint can deliver today. The center will also showcase some of the value propositions that can be achieved by using our platform in real time. We are proud to be a part of the Sprint initiative towards delivering sustainable technology and taking leadership among the global telecom companies."
"With more than 10 years of experience developing communications products in the machine-to-machine market, Sprint is dedicated to cooperative efforts with companies like Pacific Controls to bring the best technology solutions to work in the smart grid," said Wayne Ward, vice president-Emerging Solutions Group of Sprint. "Sprint invests in technology and processes that enable developers to have access to important capabilities unique to our network to make their apps and devices richer. Sprint's goal is to create as many opportunities as possible for utilities and developers to create innovative applications and devices.
