Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is working with Ruckus Wireless to create a large-scale, cloud-based Wi-Fi network for enterprises, according to a GigaOM report, which cited an unnamed source.
According to GigaOM, Google and Ruckus are trialing a new software-based wireless controller that virtualizes the management functions of the Wi-Fi network in the cloud. That could give the network global reach and let any business join and any Google customer access.
The managed Wi-Fi services Google is reportedly contemplating differs markedly from the Wi-Fi service it provides in many U.S. Starbucks Coffee locations, where Google is the actual provider of Internet service for patrons of company-owned stores.
However, it has been rumored that Google is building Android and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS versions of an app that enables automatic authentication and connections to Google hotspots located within Starbucks Stores or anywhere else they might be deployed. That app would likely use Hotspot 2.0 technology and, if true, could provide a selling point to businesses interested in signing up for a Google managed Wi-Fi service, since anyone who uses a Google hotspot in a Starbucks could automatically connect to any other hotspots that Google manages
The smart ones that made the switch also kept the VTEC for themselves and not clne.
If clne had gotten all the vtec, with 250 million gallons sold, they would have reaped a windfall.
Don't you think Waste Management has been getting those tax credits?
We always here about the $ .50 to $ 2.00 difference in diesel to nat gas. Add in VTEC and nat gas trucks now get pay back real quick.
Grant to fuel construction of compressed natural gas fueling station in Centre County
BY JEREMY HARTLEY
January 17, 2015
As more public vehicles make the conversion to compressed natural gas in the county, the need for more fueling stations is growing.
A planned CNG fueling station to be constructed at the the Centre County Recycling and Refuse Authority got a funding boost Thursday, according to news releases from state Rep. Kerry Benninghoff, R-Bellefonte, and state Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, R-Benner Township.
The $642,894 grant was awarded to Clean Energy Inc., a California-based natural gas fueling company that will build the fueling station, the release said. It was awarded as part of the Alternative and Clean Energy Program administered by the Commonwealth Financing Agency.
“This project will combine public funds with private investment to create an energy asset in our area,” Benninghoff said.
Recycling and Refuse Authority Executive Director Ted Onufrak said the authority has one collection vehicle that runs on CNG. Several borough vehicles already use the compressed fuel, and a Centre Region trash and recycling contract will require all vehicles to run on CNG in the near future.
“Any funding that can help expedite (the construction) is welcomed and appreciated,” Onufrak said.
The station will also be open to residents, he said. It won’t be a staffed station, but residents can sign up for a card that will allow them 24/7 access to the fuel.
A land-development plan is being prepared by Clean Energy to be presented to College Township, he said. The station could be up by June

Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation EXC, -0.86% today announced an agreement with CNG Fuel, Inc. to acquire seven compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in Indiana and Ohio. Constellation will own and operate the stations as public/private-access fueling sites for regional and interstate transportation fleets.
The purchase leverages the company’s scale and core expertise as a leading natural gas supplier and marks Constellation’s expansion into the CNG market, supporting the continued growth of its distributed energy business.
“Our customers and business partners see CNG and electric vehicle charging as key opportunities to address their long-term sustainability and cost management objectives,” said Gary Fromer, senior vice president of Distributed Energy for Constellation. “The addition of CNG to Constellation’s retail offerings will help our customers accelerate fleet conversions while allowing Constellation to address their CNG infrastructure and gas supply management requirements.”
Through its distributed energy business, Constellation is working with a number of its customers to develop, build, own and operate CNG fueling stations in locations to serve customer-owned and third-party contracted fleets.
There are an estimated 150,000 natural gas vehicles on the road today and that number is expected to grow.* The economics for fleet conversion are compelling, according to global management consulting, technology and outsourcing company Accenture, which is working with Constellation on alternative fueling markets. Vehicle conversion and infrastructure development is underway throughout the United States, driven by expectations of long-term low price volatility in natural gas, corporate sustainability initiatives and potential additional incentives via developing carbon markets.
One of the 10 largest natural gas marketers in the United States, Constellation delivers more than 2 trillion cubic feet of gas.

#$%$ for 5 yrs on this board hasn't gotten any results or changes.
with the testing going on at the private school in MA and at The New Orleans Univ site, what better way to prove TLPS and be part of e-rate.
From Motley Fool article:
" I reached out to Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ: CLNE ) , the country's largest seller of natural gas for transportation, to get some idea of how the law will impact the company. Clean Energy delivered 192.7 million gallon-equivalents of natural gas in the first nine months of the year, putting it on track to deliver some 250 million GGEs for all of 2014.
According to Clean Energy investor relations, the company expects to receive approximately $25 million-$28 million in credits for 2014, which it will recognize in the fourth quarter. That's a significant amount of money the company essentially "fronted" to refueling customers, with the expectations that VETC would be reinstated. "
Add the $ 40 mil sale of the plant, and $ 68 mil added to y/e numbers.
