Smart power grids are reshaping the dynamics of the global power industry. They dramatically increase power efficiencies, allow more control over consumption, and offer two-way communication between power consumers and generators. However, implementing an effective smart power grid is typically a complex process requiring the integration of disparate legacy systems. Now one of the largest electric power automation system manufacturers in China, Dongfang Electronics Co. Ltd., is using the open source WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus(WSO2 ESB) to streamline the development and maintenance of smart power grids.
The POS systems take advantage of application programming interfaces (APIs) powered by enterprise middleware platform and the WSO2 Mobile Services Gateway Solution.Through these APIs, ODEL is combining the convenience of mobile access with full integration to the back-end retail and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems that drive its business.
