Infoday Future Internet

Wellness Telecom attended the Future Internet Conference last 20th and 21st of October 2011. The Conference was hold in AMETIC headquarters in Madrid.

This conference was sponsored by the platform “es.Internet” in the field of General Assembly 2011. “es.Internet” is the Spanish Technology Convergence Platform towards the Future Internet. Given the growing interest of existing ICT platforms (enemas, eMOV, eISI, eSEC, Evia, INES, Prometheus) around the area of Future Internet, it was considered necessary to create this new converged platform towards the Future Internet that combines and coordinate these interests, common to all platforms.

The conference counted on the active participation of both public bodies as the Ministerio de Industria, turismo y Comercio (MITYC), Ministerio de Ciencie e Innovación (MICINN) and the Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico e Industrial (CDTI) as well as top-level speakers from different sectors and companies (Telefónica I + D, Indra, Atos Origin, ...)

The main objective of the Conference on Future Internet was to define some common lines to address the implementation of the Future Internet technologies and how their adoption can result in an increase of competitiveness in Spain. Throughout the presentations, it became clear the important role of SMEs as key players in the Future Internet and "smart cities" as a model of comprehensive implementation of new technologies.

Furthermore, in the conference were representatives from application from relevant sectors such as energy, health, tourism, transport, etc.

The day was structured on roundtable briefing on the Public Private Partnership (PPP) on the Internet of the future, on specific areas of application and on the infrastructures and public and private funding of the Future Internet. A parallel space was fitted out for technology demonstrations which presented the results obtained so far in some of the projects currently underway. These projects covering several sectors within the Internet of the future, such as environment, health or energy efficiency ...

Wellness Telecom found this Conference really interesting as we are focusing our effort in the area of Future Internet, a challenging area. Wellness Telecom is working hard in the different areas included in the Future Internet field as Smart Cities, Smart grids, Security Protocols, Cloud Computing and many others.

If you find Future Internet an interesting field where we can participate together, please do not hesitate to contact our Innovation Factory to look for possible future collaborations and synergies.

WeLight new Pilot

Public Lighting is one of the major sources of electricity consumption in any municipality. Very often, the infrastructure is obsolete and there is no control or monitoring system.

To reduce consumption levels, various strategies have been developed to reduce the light level in the early hours of the morning, using a device such as a post-top regulator or bi-level ballast.

Although these devices provide an adequate level of savings, normally there is still the problem of a lack of information on consumption and the savings obtained, so that very often it is difficult to monitor the profitability of the investment and the state of the equipment.

The few solutions that do permit some kind of control over consumption or saving policies cannot be used with the products from different manufacturers. If one has different types of equipment, it is necessary to have access to several management utilities, which makes the operation expensive and slows it down.

To solve this, Wellness Telecom offers it solution WeLight; the open architecture and adaptable system to control and monitor any public lighting panel.

The system also does not need its own server or its own communications infrastructures: All the information is avaible through an Internet-based software service.

You can find more information here.

After one year of internal testing in Wellness Telecom laboratories WeLight have been installed in two Local councils in the province of Sevilla (Tomares and Mairena del Aljarafe), obtaining between 25-35% of cost savings for this municipalities.

The great news is that last week the third pilot was implanted in the city of Burgos in Spain, specifically in the region of Medina de Pomar, the first prototype outside Sevilla. This prototype has been a big challenge for the company, and it has been deployed with the help of our partner of the area Wifinova. It is a promising prototype, which for sure will lead to a bigger acquisition of the system in the area. This innovation will make Medina de Pomar a reference area in Spain in the area of smart saving in public street lighting.
