Opti also utilizes a standard suite of hardware for their platform, which can be configured in a number of different ways. This allows for their platform to interface with a wide variety of different infrastructures, and makes it easy for municipalities and private commercial customers to slowly scale its deployment by reducing the complexity of the watershed-scale solution.
Opti’s capabilities aren’t limited to flood prevention. The platform offers a wide array of functionality, including rainwater harvesting, environmental monitoring, and hydromodification.
After selecting Particle, Opti went about integrating the Electron with their existing CMAC platform and getting their new units deployed in the field. What Bedig and the rest of the Opti team found with Particle was a resounding success. Perhaps most importantly, the Particle-based solution was faster and more responsive than their previous version. However, because they were on a tight time schedule, their time to market was also mission critical.
