Crossbow Technology Enters Strategic Alliance

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Crossbow Technology Inc. and Richards-Zeta Building Intelligence Inc. announced the formation of a strategic business and technology alliance intended to deliver the power of wireless sensor networks and building intelligence to end users. The alliance will benefit clients of both companies by providing the integration of technology platforms and forming complete end-to-end solutions. This collaboration between Crossbow and Richards-Zeta will make it possible for users requiring extensive sensing solutions to now integrate multiple sites with many subsystems into one intelligent, IP-centric platform.

Crossbow's wireless sensor platform includes a wide array of sensors for building automation, utilities, transportation, industrial, and military applications to monitor critical operating parameters over a wide range of environmental conditions. In many building automation applications, the deployment of a wireless network of sensors can significantly increase the availability of information regarding the operating efficiency of major systems and subsystems. Through the deployment of these wireless sensor networks, the property becomes an intelligent building that can be better managed and operated. Richards-Zeta' OMEGA user interface and M2 hardware platform seamlessly integrate with Crossbow's wireless sensors, enabling the integration of wireless sensors in disparate building systems.
