Our OBX platform is a grid of technology enhanced multifunction gateways that are connected by an encrypted Wi-Fi mesh network. This creates an energy efficient platform to deliver enhanced lighting controls, extended Internet connectivity and cloud-based data center products and services.
The OBX Platform wirelessly provides enhanced lighting control and communication while aggregating the compute capacity resident in each LED lamp/fixture
Energy Efficiency – Lighting
Lighting is the next GREEN frontier. LED lamp prices have continued to decline and light quality has improved.There are national as well as international mandates for phasing-out of tungsten bulbs that is accelerating LED adoption globally.
The public cloud market alone will reach $191 billion by 2020, from 2013's total of $58 billion. Cloud applications, at $133 billion in 2020, are leading this growth; cloud platforms will generate $44 billion in revenue by 2020; and cloud business services will come in at $14 billion(Forrester). Several researchers expect Private and Hybrid clouds to grow at an even faster rate.
