Japan's Briscola, IIJ form strategic M2M alliance

Japanese firms Briscola and Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ) have teamed up to develop cloud-based M2M services, revealing that solar-power company Asahi Denshi has become their first customer.

Under the strategic alliance, Briscola (Tokyo, Japan) will contribute its expertise in developing sensor-driven cloud platforms, with IIJ (Tokyo, Japan) providing the necessary infrastructure to support M2M services.

Briscola and IIJ say they have already built a “proof-of-concept” environment for a solar-monitoring system on behalf of Asahi Denshi.

Work on that system began in October 2013 and is aimed at helping to improve the efficiency of power generation and allowing power producers to monitor the performance of solar-power equipment.

The system means that voltage and current can be measured in real time, and allows companies to detect equipment faults and respond to them more quickly.

Briscola and IIJ say that full operation of the system is scheduled to begin in July 2014.

“We plan to supply systems making it possible to oversee the status of power generation at the panel and string level,” said Toshio Kanno, Asahi Denshi’s president, in a statement. “The cloud is indispensable for effectively gathering, measuring, compiling and analyzing all the data transmitted by the sensors and devices used in nuclear power generation.”

Briscola says it plans to develop the monitoring system as an M2M open platform for the energy sector.
