By far our most favorite visit was to Ericsson. Though many people know them for their contribution to the mobile phone business, Ericsson has stepped away from phones and has moved to innovative technology that ranges from the middle of nowhere in Africa (satellite technology) to your car and your home. Ericsson has built compatible equipment to not only simplify daily life, but also make everyday tasks operable by your electronics through the control of something as simple as a smart phone.  Ericsson has equipment that allows networking from your home to your phone to car and to your appliances. The connection to the smart grid will allow for your appliances to run at the most efficient time of day to elemenate energy waste. Ultimately, Ericsson, with 40% of telecommunications infrastructure installed throughout the world, has created an energy efficient smart home.
