OTTAWA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Solace Systems, the leading provider of hardware-based middleware, announced today the general availability of its new Geospatial Routing Blade (GRB), which gives Solace 3260 message routers the ability to distribute information based on geospatial coordinates contained within the data stream. Multiple coordinate systems are supported and can be represented in the data as points or polygonal areas of interest.
Geospatial information is increasingly a key component of many distributed information systems for applications including emergency response, social networking and sensor networks. Adding this new capability to Solace’s market-leading message routers allows sophisticated rule-based information management based on topic hierarchies, content-based rules and geospatial coordinates with all of the performance and throughput of a 100 percent hardware solution. Geospatial routing can help organizations such as government agencies, mobile carriers and cloud computing vendors match location-based events in real time with the people and systems that need to know about them.
In aggregate, sensor networks can generate gigabytes, or even terabytes, of data per day which currently flows straight into data warehouses and GIS systems for indexing, ‘after the fact’ processing and reporting. With geospatial routing, this same sensor data can become visible and actionable in real time unlocking a new range of potential location-based services and applications which leverage sophisticated business rules.
Solace also announced today the first public customer of the geospatial routing blade. More information is available in the release entitled: “DHS Domestic Nuclear Detection Office Selects Solace Systems Geospatial Routing Solution for Emergency Management Network”.
"The Solace GRB has the potential to make the use of geospatial data significantly more efficient", said David Sonnen, IDC's senior analyst for spatial information. "By filtering, analyzing and distributing geospatial data in real time, the GRB eliminates many intermediate data management steps and speeds response time."
“It is clear that the future will include more and more data that is tied to physical locations, whether they are generated by sensors, mobile workers or the GPS-enabled phone in your pocket,” said Shawn McAllister, CTO at Solace Systems. “We are very pleased to introduce the first geospatially-aware information routing system and expect it to lead to many innovative new services.”
