Connected World Magazine has named ILS Technology an award-winning Enabler at its 2013 Value Chain Awards.

The awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of M2M technology and connected devices, as well as the solution providers that help make their technology adoption a success. The awards recognize the process of combining multiple technologies such as device-connectivity hardware, radio modules, network service and provisioning, as well as application software and infrastructure, to create a winning solution for the end customer based on quantifiable results.

ILS Technology took home two Value Chain Enabler Awards for enabling innovative M2M deployments by two Gold Award winners: Acclaim Energy Advisors in the Energy category, and Restaurant Technologies, Inc. in Remote Monitoring.

Acclaim Energy Advisors
With a booming population and temperatures rising, Texas is facing a power shortage likely to surpass that of summer 2011, which resulted in rolling brownouts throughout the state. Although many public utilities have established demand response incentives, by which customers agree to drop off the grid on needs-based request, fewer than ten percent of commercial and industrial customers currently participate.

Acclaim Energy Advisors was recognized with a Gold Value Chain Award for their automated service to optimize the public and private sectors participation in demand response programs, taking into account their usage profile and operating characteristics. The ILS Technology deviceWISE M2M Application Platform extracts data from customer devices and equipment and provides real-time information about power consumption at multiple sites across the entire power grid. Together, the companies enable electricity providers to manage power consumption, balance the load and avoid brownouts, blackouts and related damage to customer equipment – as illustrated in this video of a fully-automated low cost solution that intelligently switches large users to back-up generators during peak power conditions, generating revenue for all participants.

Restaurant Technologies, Inc.
