SmartPeer, LLC

SmartPeer, LLC, an affiliate of ToadNode.com, is the creator of the SmartPeer network appliance and software. The SmartPeer device ships with SmartPeer's embedded proprietary Peer-To-Peer networking software. The appliance allows brick and mortar retailers to cooperate in a network that helps customers locate products. The device works by communicating information from a local point of sale or inventory system to the distributed network. The SmartPeer software fields an inquiry from the Internet, and translates it into a query the local system can understand. It then translates the result of the query back into a format the original sender will understand. SmartPeers can handle queries among the members of the peer community without a central server, and are Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) enabled for mobile commerce applications.
