WebNMS, a division of ZOHO Corp and provider of network and element management solutions, has announced it will offer a preview of its machine-to-machine (M2M) power grid monitoring solutions at Middle East Electricity 2013
The firm is set to participate in the exhibition, taking place from 17-19 February 2013, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Prabhu Ramachandran, director at WebNMS, said, "The Middle East is a very important market for us and the Middle East Electricity 2013 exhibition is an ideal platform for us to showcase our power grid monitoring solutions and M2M technologies to a niche focused audience.
"The exhibition attracts visitors from across the Middle East and Africa region that are scouting for the latest technologies and solutions catering to the energy and power sector and these are target customers for our solutions," he added.
Through M2M technologies, machines can be connected through the internet and can actively communicate with each other, transmitting vital data to a central location. Each device must be equipped with a communication module or a sensor for data collection.
The data generated from this communication allows enterprises to gain information and the two-way communication between machines eliminates the need for human intervention in many routine service operations.
According to a research report from the analyst firm, Berg Insight, the global number of wireless M2M connections is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 27.2 per cent to reach 359.3mn customers in 2016.
With an effective remote monitoring system, operators could take centralised control of complex electrical grids and improve operational efficiency through proactive diagnosis of power leakage or breakage.
WebNMS will be exhibiting at Stand 2H16.
