BANGALORE, India, December 14, 2010 - Infosys Technologies has developed an innovative Digital Smart
Home Gateway powered by the Intel Atom(TM) processor E600 series that links
multiple home devices, enabling consumers to manage them from a Wi-Fi
console, smart phone or remotely via the Web.
The solution targets Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs),
utility, healthcare, telecom, entertainment and security service providers by
pre-integrating a reference design based on the new Intel Atom(TM) processor
E600 series, hardware and software components for feature plug and play, as
well as an array of home management applications that run on the Linux-based
operating system MeeGo.
"The new Digital Smart Home Gateway underscores Infosys'
leadership in delivering innovative solutions for the future as well as the
strength of our partnership with Intel," said, Sanjay Jalona, Vice President,
High-Tech & Manufacturing, Infosys Technologies Ltd. "We saw an opportunity
to address an emerging market need by combining our product engineering
competencies along with Intel's state-of-the-art technology."
"The combination of Infosys' design and engineering expertise
with Intel's leading edge embedded system-on-chip provides an innovative
product for customers to manage a variety of devices in the home," said Joe
Jensen, General Manager, Embedded and Communications Group, Intel.
"The embedded Intel Atom(TM) platform creates an optimal
solution with a range of connectivity options and significant processing
power to deliver the breadth of applications with high performance and rich
user experience," said Sanat Rao, Marketing Director for Emerging Markets,
Embedded and Communications Group, Intel South Asia.
The pre-configured solution can be built into customized
energy management devices by OEMs and service providers, allowing them to
rapidly introduce new products to consumers and generate revenues by offering
value-added services. The solution provides a real time monitoring capability
for residential utility providers which include monitoring energy consumption
per appliance, forecasting cost per usage, providing subscription to a demand
response program, and recommending savings potential.
The Digital Smart Home Gateway also facilitates health
monitoring and diagnosis, audio-video communication over Wi-Fi, entertainment
subscriptions and security surveillance. The solution is a pioneering
offering in an emerging category of enabling digital homes through device
convergence. The solution was introduced at the recent Intel Developer Forum
