Mar 18, 2008 (10:03 AM EDT)


MORGANTOWN, W.Va., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Augusta Systems Inc., provider of intelligent enterprise network technologies, today announced the release of SensorBridge(R) v4.0 and EdgeFrontier(TM) v3.0, the latest versions of industry-leading software products for building and managing intelligent networks, systems, and applications featuring data from edge assets -- including sensors, actuators, wireless sensor networks, RFID systems, imagery devices and other edge systems and devices.

"SensorBridge and EdgeFrontier enable enterprises to process and correlate data from the physical world of wireless sensors, video cameras and other edge assets. As a result, these technologies provide enterprises with the backbone for an intelligent network infrastructure," said John Sauter, Practice Area Leader for the Agent-based Complex Systems Group at TechTeam Global's TechTeam Government Solutions subsidiary, a leading IT solutions company providing services support to federal, state and local governments. "When coupled with advanced software, such as agent-based control applications, a network powered by SensorBridge and EdgeFrontier is capable of managing truly complex systems. These products provide a major advancement for intelligent networks."

SensorBridge is an award-winning suite of Microsoft Visual Studio software components for building and managing intelligent networks, systems, and applications -- featuring data from edge assets -- within an integrated development environment (IDE). EdgeFrontier is powerful, easily configurable middleware for performing many of the same building and management tasks outside of an IDE. SensorBridge v4.0 and EdgeFrontier v3.0 feature significant architectural enhancements -- including additional data integration options and more robust event processing capabilities -- to enable engineers and developers to develop, deploy and manage next-generation networks with increased efficiency and more robust performance.

SensorBridge and EdgeFrontier, along with Augusta Systems(R) SensorPort(R) intelligent network appliance, provide platforms for the intelligent convergence of data from the multitude of diverse edge assets that exist at the edge of enterprise networks. Augusta Systems technologies support the building and management of converged enterprise solutions for security, monitoring, automation, asset tracking and other applications. These Augusta Systems products are used by numerous clients for military, industrial and public safety solutions, among others.

"Before SensorBridge and EdgeFrontier, the convergence and integration of data from diverse edge assets was either too costly or too complex for most enterprises," said Patrick Esposito, president and chief operating officer of Augusta Systems. "These Augusta Systems technologies have provided enterprises with powerful building blocks to connect with and control sensors and devices that reside at the edge of the network. With SensorBridge, EdgeFrontier and SensorPort, enterprises can keep their existing enterprise network infrastructures and edge assets, cut down on costly software development time, eliminate multiple middleware applications tied to specific systems and easily add new edge assets and systems. These products are the key building blocks of intelligent enterprise networks."
