Analog Devices, Inc. Selects Domosys' Power Line Technology

    QUEBEC CITY, Sept. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Domosys Corporation, a leading
provider of Power Line Communication Technology, today announced that Analog
Devices, Inc. (ADI) and Domosys have entered into an exclusive Development and
Distribution Agreement. Under this agreement Domosys will port its leading
PowerBUS RHINO technology to ADI's new products and co-develop with ADI
reference designs to enable electrical Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) solutions
around the world.
    According to the latest ABS Energy Research, at the end of 2006 there
were an estimated 2.46 billion electrical, gas and water meters in the world
and 58% of these, or 1.423 billion, are electrical meters. In recent years the
global demand for AMR has consistently increased and has now reached a
penetration estimated at 6.5% of all meters. The demand and implementation of
power line solutions as a way to communicate with the electrical meters has
been on the rise as well. A few years ago, Italy retrofitted 30 million
electrical meters with power line communication. Deployment of AMR in China is
also rapidly increasing. In the next few years there will be more roll-outs in
Sweden, Ontario, Australia and Puerto Rico where AMR projects have been
    "We are proud of the trust that Analog Devices Inc. has demonstrated
toward our organization, our people and Domosys' latest power line technology
PowerBUS RHINO. We believe that the products and brand recognition of ADI
within the global electrical metering market will unleash the power of
Domosys' power line technology and enable Automatic Meter Reading (AMR)
solutions globally," said Alain Laflamme, President of Domosys Corporation.
"Having the possibility to join forces with ADI to bring the advantages of AMR
to the 1.423 billion unit electrical metering market using ADI's global
distribution network is a fantastic opportunity for Domosys".
    Mr. Patrick O'Doherty, Product Line Director, explains, "Analog Devices
is a market leader in the field of metering components. The execution of this
Agreement with Domosys is concluding a 3rd party selection process allowing
ADI to get to market quickly with an existing and proven technology. In terms
of Power Line Communication Technology aimed at the automatic meter reading
industry, the performance of PowerBus RHINO is second to none and will enable
ADI to rapidly offer a reliable solution."
    Domosys' communication technology transforms any stand-alone product into
a device that can be controlled or monitored either locally or remotely over
the Internet. Utilizing narrow-band transceivers, signals are sent and
received over existing power lines or twisted pair wires, reducing the need
for new wires or infrastructure to be built.
