AT&T buys into smart-grid monitors
Mississippi-based SmartSynch partners with the telecom giant to provide wireless meter-monitoring technology.
According to an Associated Press report , Jackson, Miss.-based SmartSynch has been tapped to provide AT&T (based in Dallas) with wireless meter-monitoring technology.
The SmartSynch program enables utilities to check meters remotely via computer, rather than sending representatives onsite. Stephen D. Johnston, chief executive of SmartSynch, said utility companies are expected to spend up to $50 billion on “smart grid technology,” and the stimulus bill signed by President Obama includes $11 billion for smart-grid spending.
