The core technology of Universal Middleware is based on service-deliverable units that make it possible to take advantages of convergence in communication technology. This study focuses on the industrial technologies independently utilized as a component library for extension services. Besides, there are needs for the next generation services gateway model that was described as a unit model on Smart Grid service which is a part of both electric power (network) service and communication (network) service. And it is the motivation for developing the micro-grid infrastructure. This model is able to remotely distribute and deliver to the architecture. This architecture applied to quantification services has various applications such as remote decision, real-time decision and contents-oriented operation service. The proposed Universal Middleware solution provides management service to complementally different platforms. Experiments and performance evaluation of Universal Middleware have been carried out to justify the modular design and service-deliverable architecture with life cycle management. Throughout this research, USP-oriented Smart Grid gateway should universalize various technologies as an activator for entering into services gateway industries such as electric power service providers, convergence network service providers, and manufacturers with operators and end-users.
