Enterprise Application and Sensor Engine (EASE-V8™)
Simplifying the delivery of IoT business intelligence
At the heart of the Omnitrol IoT Products is EASE-V8™, the industry's most acclaimed IoT application framework. We developed EASE-V8™ with a focus to:
- Remove the complexity in integrating IoT devices, sensors and SCADA technologies
- Simplify Cloud-to-Edge (distributed FOG computing) deployments
- Enable an open SOA based extensible micro-services architecture
- Open API's integrating real-time operational intelligence with Enterprise Application Integration
- Create an open, programmable, scalable and connected IoT information bus
- Encapsulate IoT application programming as a secure IoT event-driven operating system
- Deliver an open-source innovation platform for any operational environment or market
- Integrate web-based device and system management automatically with customer-driven IoT solutions
EASE-V8™ IoT engine for mission critical applications
EASE-V8™ is the industry's first next-generation distributed IoT application platform. Built with the same robustness and scalability of a telecom
switch operating system, over 99.999% uptime and scalability to millions of end-devices. Application engineers can reliably design and deliver mission critical IoT applications to enhance their
existing M2M automation and enterprise applications. The EASE-V8™ framework integrates multi-threaded complex event processing (CEP),
focus on the specific business work-flows and rapidly create solutions through plug-n-play "vendor agnostic" IoT API's for sensors and devices.
EASE-V8™ normalizes all external interfaces (devices, mobile, databases, etc.)to our unique EASE Events (XML/JSON) to remove any dependency on a
specific vendor protocol. Applications are ready with complete operational logs, metrics and management from the moment they are conceived on the
Application development and delivery is further simplified by our integrated IoT device emulator, called EdgeView™. Applications can be developed, tested and deployed using the devices provided on the EdgeView™ IoT Emulator to complete development of EASE-V8™ micro-services, we call Edgelets™, perform automated testing and finally achieve deployment with actual sensor devices, RFID, SCADA/PLC controllers, or any other external IoT device stimulus.
Benefits of EASE-V8™ IoT engine include:
- Substantially reduce development to deployment costs
- Complete Cloud-to-Edge (FOG computing) application delivery platform
- Powerful & extensible IoT application API and Service Creation Environment
- Standard and open adapters (SOAP/XML, HTTP/SJSON, ODBC, CSV, JMS/MQ, etc.)
- Open database engine Oracle, DB2, Informix, SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and more
- Open event-driven peer-to-peer IoT information bus for service federation
- Hot-install & upgrade micro-services without down-time on deployments
- Vendor agnostic device and service protocol normalization to EASE Events
- Device adapters for SCADA, RFID, RTLS, BLE, Sensors, Serial, Modbus, LLRP, EPC, ALE, etc.
- Secure communication channels over VPN and SSL links
- Integrated web-based application and device management
The Omnitrol IoT EASE-V8™ engine is a fully integrated Smart Infrastructure's™ application framework. Our vision to simplify IoT business and operational intelligence was developed in close collaboration with our customers production environments. The EASE-V8™ engine was developed as an application independent distributed software architecture that can be applied in any industrial or consumer application, in the cloud, on premise, or as hybrid cloud-to-edge solution.

- Bio-hazard monitoring for water and industrial waste treatment for the City of Calgary
- Library and heritage asset management for Utah State Library (USL)
- Work-in-Process tracking in manufacturing for EMC Corporation
- Returnable assets and material tracking for CHEP/Brambles)
- Perishable goods tracking in manufacturing for Grupo Leche Pascual (GLP)

It mitigates technology investment risk by minimizing integration with existing legacy systems; enabling customers to migrate at their own pace while still being future-proofed.
Omnitrol’s cutting-edge solution suite automatically collects information from a large variety of sensors and, through predictive analytics, delivers real-time visibility with accurate forecasting between business partner operations. Potentially, any control system or middleware may help an end-user integrate back-end and shop-floor but Omnitrol infrastructure extends business intelligence directly from the operations-floor without the complexity of multiple software layers, thereby minimizing total investment and improving ROI.
