Omnitrol Networks Takes Best-in-Class Ranking from

Share Article has awarded Omnitrol Networks a best-in-class ranking among intelligent sensor network software and appliance makers. “Our team of experts found that the Omnitrol Networks solution not only outperformed and out-scaled competitive offerings, but also saved tens of thousands of dollars in hidden costs,” wrote Louis Sirico, President of Best Intelligent Sensor Network Software / Appliance : Omnitrol Networks

Put all of these features together, and you can have a powerful distributed intelligent sensor network up and running in an afternoon. And it works flawlessly—we know, we tested it.

The Omnitrol Networks solution allows sensors from various technologies to be choreographed together using real-time business logic executed right on the shop-floor, and includes:

  • device-agnostic support for RFID readers, printers and encoders, Real-Time Location Services (RTLS), PLC controls, digital and analog sensors, and metering and operator feedback devices;
  • integration with commercial databases, ERP and other back-ends;
  • a secure distributed smart-agent software framework;
  • a built-in service creation and sensor emulation environment for rapid delivery of business intelligent applications.

“Put all of these features together, and you can have a powerful distributed intelligent sensor network up and running in an afternoon. And it works flawlessly—we know, we tested it. We also found that the Omnitrol Networks peer-to-peer software architecture accelerates the transition from a small pilot to full-scale distributed deployment without incurring the hidden costs of other solutions,” explained Sirico.

“This new world of sensors enables a whole new paradigm in value-added automation and visibility that can be successfully delivered through a versatile programmable service-oriented network appliance,” said Omnitrol Networks CEO Raj Saksena in the book Thin Air. “One which connects any device to the network, allowing instant visibility and control. With such an appliance, a PLC controller or RFID reader plugs into the infrastructure in minutes, versus weeks.”

The awards are the only industry awards based on scientifically repeatable tests of real-world scenarios and not on surveys or opinion results alone. Products given the Best-in-Class award have been rigorously tested and carefully evaluated by experts in RFID technology. The Best-in-Class products rank higher than competitor products in 85% or more of evaluation criteria. As Sirico describes it: “a Best-in-Class product typically changes the competitive landscape, either through innovative features, evolutionary design, or exceptional value for the price, and provides a significant increase in productivity.” evaluates products in several classes, including intelligent sensor networks, RFID portals, RFID-enabled lift trucks, hand-held RFID readers, automated asset tracking, and other sensor-based technology solutions.
