Businesses that have recently joined as contributor members include Access Co., CM Engineering, Exegin Technologies, ISB Corp., Osaka Gas, Rohde & Schwartz, Semtech, Silicon Laboratories, Tateyama Kagaku Wireless Technology, Tessera Technology and Toshiba Corp.

Toshiba, which Tokyo Electric Power Co. recently selected to provide a communication system for 27 million smart meters, is also a board member of the ECHONET consortium that is developing the standard for home energy management systems (HEMS) technology.

Wi-SUN Alliance and the ECHONET Consortium have signed an agreement to jointly develop the complete specification for wireless HEMS, including smart meters. Wi-SUN Alliance says Toshiba is taking a leading role for this new specification, which is in its final stage and will soon be published for Wi-SUN members.
