Wireless communications offer cost-saving opportunities


BlueTree Wireless Data designs and markets a full suite of commercial and industrial wireless modems. BlueTree also develops wireless data software solutions, designed to enhance M2M applications. The company’s standards-based approach provides the platform that middleware, application developers and value -added resellers (VARs) need to deliver end-to-end solutions to customers.

Utility companies allow many of their large customers remote access to their power meters to better manage their power consumption. Traditionally, this information was communicated via wire line communications, but these applications are being replaced with wireless communications because of the large reduction in monthly network charges and the increased portability and flexibility of wireless communications.

BlueTree’s modems have been successfully installed at Hydro Quebec and Hydro One for meter reading applications, thanks to power management abilities that are unique to this application.
