By Erlang Central | Published: November 5, 2012

Cyan is a systems company involved in two primary markets: public lighting control and smart metering.  This talk covers our CyLec architecture for electricity smart metering, from the wireless ISM-band nodes embedded in the meters via the GPRS gateways that link them to the internet and the Erlang cloud infrastructure that manages them to the rich web applications in the control rooms.
Talk objectives: Show off an innovative use of Erlang in the M2M space.
