A Computer in Every Meter, Every Device
The computing power available in edge devices continues to increase — and as it does, it's also becoming more and more affordable. When those devices become both more powerful and more affordable, intelligence and action can both be distributed to the outer edges of the network. OpenWay Riva harnesses the power of this distributed intelligence by putting the computing power equivalent of a smartphone or desktop computer into every meter or network device. That means high-resolution data from network sensors can be quickly analyzed at the edge without having to transport lots of data over the network and to the utility back for analysis.
The result? OpenWay Riva is able to solve operational challenges in new and very innovative ways, including detecting theft and water loss by analyzing flow in the distribution system, or by sensing pressure changes and other anomalies in the network. This is the Active Network.
