o V2COM: V2COM is a leading Latin American provider of Smart Grid technologies and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). V2COM's integrated Smart Grid Solution uses Oracle Java ME Embedded, Oracle Java SE Embedded and other Oracle technologies, including Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management and Oracle Database to manage and connect systems from the device to the data center. Most recently, V2COM's Oracle-enabled solutions have been the cornerstone of an AMI project at customer Elektro, an Energy Distribution company in Brazil, serving 2.3 million clients and reaching 5.5 million people. The project automated Elektro's Commercial & Industrial metering process to include intelligent communication modules that connect legacy electronic meters through the public cellular network, and linking them to a common middleware application and Meter Data Management application. With V2COM and Oracle technology and expertise, Elektro was able to deploy 6,000 communication modules in just three months. Two weeks after the initial installation the billing process was completely automated and in the months following, all processes were quickly integrated on the solution. In addition to more efficient day to day operations, the solution delivered the additional ROI of enabling Elektro to detect frauds and field installation problems that were not easily visible before. The metering automation also generated savings by eliminating operational costs of 30 legacy field service units allocated to the meter reading process.
"The connected world offers significant opportunities for organizations that can glean the full value from data collected by billions of devices, using it to drive innovation, new services, and differentiate themselves from their competitors," said Chris Baker, senior vice president ISV, OEM and Java Sales, Oracle Alliances & Channels. "In working closely with our partner community, Oracle is delivering customers the industry's most comprehensive, reliable, and secure platform for their IoT needs today and well into the future."
