BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ossia, the company behind the Cota® remote wireless charging technology, announced today that it has partnered with OSF Global Services to redefine power delivery technology. Cota uses patented smart antenna technology to safely deliver targeted energy to devices without user intervention; combined with OSF's cloud and smart device expertise, Ossia and OSF demonstrate the potential of the cloud and wireless power to advance smart home technology.
A CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree in the "Tech for a Better World" product category, Ossia's groundbreaking Cota technology is redefining wireless to include targeted energy transmission that powers devices. The Cota transmitter serves as a hub, providing power and data to devices like smart home products, smartphones, remote controls and much more. Through their partnership, Ossia and OSF are addressing two major obstacles to the growing Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables market: the lack of standardized networking technology and the reliance on batteries to power complex, diverse devices.
"For the Internet of Things and wearables to reach their full potential, it's absolutely essential to have a source of wireless power as well as a cloud-based technology platform that enables devices to work together seamlessly," said Hatem Zeine, founder and CEO of Ossia and creator of Cota technology. "OSF's cloud technology expertise combined with Cota's innovative wireless power technology removes the remaining hurdles to widespread smart home and wearables adoption, and we're excited about working with OSF to demonstrate our technology's amazing potential."
About the size of a small PC tower, Cota's patented smart antenna technology safely delivers targeted energy to devices at a distance. That means smart home products, wearables and other devices remain powered up and ready to go at all times — without users having to plug devices in to a charger or place them on a charging pad. Cota technology functions similarly to the way WiFi transmitters deliver data to devices, transmitting both energy and data around corners and over obstructions without requiring a direct line of sight.
Ossia partnered with OSF to develop Cota Cloud, Cota's iPad administration application, administration consoles and a mobile applications suite. The company works with a variety of strategic investors and product developers and plans to continue to explore commercial and consumer applications for its wireless charging technology.
