City of Denver – smart parking meters
Since 2008, San Diego-based IPS Group has partnered with the City of Denver to upgrade their aging parking meter infrastructure to a state-of-the-art coin and credit card capable smart meter system.
The IPS meters installed in the City of Denver are solar powered to maximize battery life and are environmentally friendly.
Motorists appreciate the multiple payment options including debit/credit card, and the City cherishes the real-time reports and data made available through the online management system. IPS meters are also designed to be "future-proof," and can be upgraded at any time, including the ability to be paired with IPS Vehicle Detection Sensors and IPS Smart Cash Collection System.
Wyless is pleased to provide the M2M wireless data connectivity on the T Mobile US Network and managed services that underpin the new smart parking meters.
TZ Medical – remote cardiac monitoring devices
Today, there are around four million people who need care for recurring arrhythmias in the US alone, and the medical community requires best-in-class technology for detection and monitoring. The TZ Medical Aera CT improves the ability to rapidly detect heart arrhythmias during normal day-to-day activities and over long periods. The Aera CT enables secure and reliable communication of detailed diagnostic data via cellular networks and the Internet, providing patients and their physicians with 24/7 monitoring and improved detection and visibility of arrhythmia events.
