— Green CommChallenge announced today the adoption of WideTag's massive data collection platform, WideSpime,for the realtime monitoring of vessel performance at its America's Cup races.The parameters of a high-technology sailing yacht, such as the one that Green Comm Challenge isgoing to prepare to race against Oracle's, are continuously ﬁne tuned, and bring the materials and thesystems employed to the limits of their extreme performance. Using WideSpime, a system explicitlydesigned to collect, manage, and analyse a continuous stream of data in a high concurrencyenvironment, Green Comm Challenge is going to be able and leverage the next generation sensornetworks used to monitor, and prepare its yachts.Leandro Agro, CEO of WideTag declared "We are very proud of having been chosen by Green CommChallenge, and for WideSpime to be empolyed in an environment up to its radically new performancelevels!""Our environment, and the time constraints we have to work with are very demanding. In WideTag wefound a partner whose technology platforms are going to measure, and understand our data with thespeed and accuracy required," added Francesco De Leo, CEO of Green Comm Challenge, and hecontinued:"I am pleased to announce that WideTag has joined Green Comm Challenge to address the issue ofmassive data collection on board of our multi-hull vessel, designed for the 33rd America's Cup.We are exploring the opportunity to collect and ﬁlter data points which were simply not available to us,in the past. This is a critical step towards better understanding how new design options will be deﬁned.But, I am even more intrigued by the opportunity to apply WideTag application platform to address theenergy challenge which is now emerging as turning point for the IT and Telco world. I share the samevision and passion of WideTag management team in looking forward the integration of wirelesssensory networks in our daily life, to cut carbon emissions, and to improve the way we use energyacross our society."
