As NetComm’s communications technology is designed to interoperate with mobile networks globally, Hitachi says it will be able ‘to deliver smart solutions that facilitate the efficient use of energy resources worldwide.’
Hitachi notes its responsibility for the development of ICT infrastructure that adds smart control capabilities to installed devices, with Netcomm chosen to ‘custom design wireless communication technology that enables the remote collection, management and analysis of energy data in real-time.’
David Stewart, CEO and MD of Netcomm Wireless said: “Hitachi is a world leading innovator with a longstanding commitment to address some of society's most demanding challenges and we look forward to working together to redefine the way that energy is managed.
“It is an honour to be selected by Hitachi to deliver smart energy solutions that address the key objectives of Hitachi and its customers."
"Japan is an important market for us. Our collaboration with Hitachi and Kanematsu Communications demonstrates our capabilities in engineering smart city technologies that can be scaled to support large rollouts globally.
Our partnership approach is to work with leading innovators to help countries achieve their emissions reduction targets, and transform the future of energy," concluded Stewart.
In business for 33 years, Netcomm Wireless develops M2M devices and solutions, providing 3G, 4G and rural broadband next-gen fixed-wireless devices that underpin an increasingly connected world, with customers including telcos, core network providers and system integrators.
