KnowThings and Capstone Metering Partner to Bring Simulation to IntelliH2O Platform

By Ken Briodagh August 28, 2018

In a recent release, Capstone Metering, a provider of the IntelliH2O intelligent water meter for residential use, has announced its partnership with KnowThings to enhance the IntelliH2O Metering DevOps platform toolkit by integrating the KnowThings IoT simulation tool. Knowthings.io is a CA Technologies Accelerator startup project that uses patented technologies to help developers build advanced virtual devices to test at scale for integration and performance.

This partnership allows Capstone Metering to bring an unprecedented value to global water industries by effectively managing, controlling, and conserving water through their IntelliH2O water meter. The new solution will enable Capstone to provide a more robust offering to their customers.

“The capabilities provided by KnowThings are critical to growing our platform,” said Jim Williamson, VP, Engineering, Capstone Metering. “A combined solution using KnowThings will empower IoT development teams to build advanced virtual device prototypes and early-stage test and development scenarios with realistic data to bring their ideas to fruition faster and at a lower cost.”

KnowThings’ IoT virtualizer is a self-learning simulation testing tool that helps accelerate IoT solution software development. Based on its patented service virtualization algorithms and machine learning technology, the KnowThings IoT virtualizer can learn the network interaction and communication patterns between IoT devices. Armed with this data, KnowThings handles test edge cases which would otherwise be difficult to test.

“We have a continuous integration/continuous delivery(CI/CD) platform that not only manages smart meters on the field, but also analyses it and presents it to the user,” said Matt Ouille, director, IoT engineering, Capstone Metering. “We wanted to truly simulate our device information, without requiring us to build time consuming schemas to test out our ideas. With that data, we could learn not only how our platform reacts but also learn how our devices would fail. This is where KnowThings fits into the existing DevOps tooling that we provide to our customers today.”
