Infosys Digital Smart Home Gateway

Today's homes already have several devices that can connect to the Internet through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or LAN. Devices such as home energy monitors, infotainment gadgets, medical appliances, gaming consoles, and communication hubs, all have the potential to communicate independently with each other or with a server. The Digital Smart Home Gateway from Infosys links multiple home devices, enabling consumers to manage them from a Wi-Fi console, smart phone or remotely via the Web.
