Esper's rich capabilities in event pattern matching and stream analysis hit a sweet spot in RFID signal analysis
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2008
AeroScout, Inc., the leading provider of Unified Asset Visibility solutions, entered into an OEM agreement with EsperTech for its Esper Complex Event Processing (CEP) product to deliver real-time asset visibility. Esper's CEP is used as the Event Engine for the AeroScout MobileView 4.0 software. MobileView 4.0 provides a platform for driving context-aware applications and automating and improving business processes through the integration of real-time asset location and visibility data. The Event Engine enables users to easily create sophisticated rules-based events, triggered by asset location and status, and it is capable of processing events with tens of thousands of asset transactions simultaneously. With MobileView 4.0, AeroScout turns asset visibility information received from multiple data sources into real business solutions, delivering sophisticated mapping, rules-based alerting and reporting functions in a scalable, enterprise-proven software platform.
AeroScout, which operates globally, selected EsperTech's Esper CEP after careful evaluation and proof-of-concept testing of the leading providers of CEP technology. "Choosing EsperTech's CEP engine, which balances flexibility and ease of development together with high throughput, allowed us to focus on addressing our customers' use cases. Defining and configuring the Esper CEP events engine using its EPL continuous-query language was a new paradigm that our developers started using overnight," says AeroScout's Baruch Yoeli, Vice President of Research and Development.
"Esper's rich capabilities in event pattern matching and stream analysis hit a sweet spot in RFID signal analysis," says Thomas Bernhardt, CEO of EsperTech. "This further proves EsperTech's fast growing footprint across a number of verticals benefiting from CEP technology."
