With edge assets and sensors being deployed in more situations, the problem of integrating all data is certain to gain momentum as a crucial networking need. While the industry demands lower costs and higher capacity, EdgeFrontier will allow organizations to maximize edge system and device deployments to enable customer security, monitoring, automation and asset tracking applications. Augusta says it remains ahead of the curve when it comes to servicing the cutting-edge market for intelligent networking solutions.

The latest version of Augusta EdgeFrontier was recently introduced, described as a widely-deployed middleware for building and managing intelligent networks. EdgeFrontier is unique in its ability to integrate data various devices now connected to enterprise networks: video, radio frequency identification (RFID), and environmental. It’s said to be truly agnostic and can work with any incoming data no matter the source.

Augusta was recently awarded a $10 million contract by the U.S. Navy to enable a distributed, intelligent network of battlefield sensors and unmanned vehicles .
