Multi-Tech Receives 2010 Connected World Magazine Value Chain Award for Enabling a Networking Solution for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) June 24, 2010

Multi-Tech® Systems, a world leading manufacturer of cellular modems and device networking solutions, received a 2010 Value Chain Award on June 17, 2010 at the annual Connected World Conference in Chicago. The Awards recognize the most successful adopters of M2M (machine-to-machine) communications technology and the teams of solution providers that made their successes possible. Multi-Tech’s team, which includes Coulomb Technologies and Aeris, received the silver award for an innovative solution in Energy/Utilities.

Selected by an esteemed panel of industry analysts and experts, the awards highlight the process of combining multiple technologies, such as Multi-Tech’s device-connectivity hardware, Aeris’ network service, as well as Coulomb’s application in networked electric vehicle charging stations, to demonstrate a winning solution that provides significant business value.

Coulomb Technologies is using the MultiModem® CDMA cellular modem as part of its ChargePoint Network in the United States. Each local group of ChargePoint Charging Stations are mesh networked together, with a gateway charging station within the group consolidating and transmitting the data from the charging stations via a MultiModem CDMA cellular modem and the Aeris network to the ChargePoint Network Operating System platform. This unique M2M communications solution provides many advantages, including the ability to remotely authorize energizing and the ability for drivers to find unoccupied charging stations via web-enabled cell phones.

“Successful partnerships, such as ours with Coulomb and Aeris, streamline the M2M deployment process, and quickly generate business value which M2M communications provides,” said Jen Meyer, Multi-Tech Vice President of Marketing Communications. “It is an honor to once again be recognized by the industry for one of the many innovative solutions that Multi-Tech enables.”

"The companies that are receiving Value Chain Awards this year represent an excellent mix of applications and industries," says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. "They have truly demonstrated a commitment to the M2M marketplace by implementing cutting-edge technology, and winning a Value Chain Award acknowledges their effort."
