Davra Networks has launched RuBAN, an end-to-end platform offering new capabilities for system integrators and network VARs. With this platform, Davra Networks covers everything from utilizing “fog computing” (managing IoT data at the ground level) to collecting data from sensors to presenting it as usable business intelligence on the desktop. In Davra's approach, data is gathered, filtered, and managed near its source, sent to the cloud, then turned into business intelligence. The RuBAN platform also handles automated network troubleshooting, response, and problem repair remotely.
“Our customers are using the RuBAN platform to turn IoT raw data into usable everyday solutions that are as visual and easy to use as your smartphone,” says Davra Networks CEO Paul Glynn. “We work with our partners to do all the heavy lifting and installing of Cisco IoS Integrated Services routers and sensors on location, then we manage information coming from the IoT environment as well as information from the network itself. We make sure to bring only the relevant raw data back to the customer cloud by utilizing fog computing. Our flexible solution can be used as easily in vehicle tracking or water meter usage as it can in smart cities and farms.”
The RuBAN platform allows companies to translate raw network and sensor data into an accessible open format that can be analyzed and presented to their own highly visual GUI or fed to third-party app developers and data consumption tools such as ERP systems, CRM, and predictive analytics tools. The plug-and-play platform needs no customization nor is end-user training required for the final applications.
Davra Networks' customers such as City of Toronto, University of Alabama, SoftChoice, Vodafone, and BT have used this technology, for example, on buses allowing important information like the number of passengers, bus speed, engine status, and more to be sent to the cloud in real time for potential action. Additionally, RuBAN has been embedded within Cisco's IoT platforms and is a part of its global dCloud demonstration system.
Davra Networks’ RuBAN platform is now available from its global channel partners.
