Aug 22, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Telvent GIT, SA, an IT solutions and information provider for a sustainable world, has announced that XOOM Energy, an energy retailer in the US, has selected Telvent to provide weather and load forecasting technology to help the company make educated purchasing decisions based on projected energy usage.

According to the company, whether it is a heat wave, arctic outbreak of cold air, or rapidly changing weather regimes, Telvent's weather forecasts provide XOOM Energy unparalleled accuracy.

Data such as temperature, dew point, and wind speed will be delivered to XOOM Energy hourly. Plus, the company also has round-the-clock access to Telvent's weather experts for questions regarding load forecast models, observations, and forecasts delivered 15 days in advance.

By selecting Telvent, XOOM Energy is choosing the same weather information provider as 70 percent of the country's major investor-owned utilities (IOU) and co-ops, who use Telvent's forecasts to enhance their smart grid solutions.

According to Telvent's chairman and CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, "We are committed to providing industry-leading weather technology to help our customers make critical business decisions. Using our solutions, Xoom Energy has access to the same market information used by top utilities across the country." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.
