Welcome to the Active Network

OpenWay Riva is the only IoT solution available that delivers both adaptive communications technology and distributed intelligence to meters, network devices and sensors at the edge of the network. And the same edge computing power that enables OpenWay Riva to deliver adaptive communications also powers data analysis at the endpoint, allowing action to take place where it makes the most sense—which is increasingly at the edge of the network.

With OpenWay Riva’s methane sensing and smart disconnect features, gas service may be shut off at the customer premise immediately, saving precious resources, time and money in the wake of a potentially dangerous situation.

The Active Network: Intelligence Where It's Needed

Collecting lots of data is no longer enough. Today’s business and operational challenges require intelligent devices to analyze data at the edge of the network. They require a diverse ecosystem of network devices and assets, communicating and collaborating across the network to solve problems, create opportunities and manage rapidly changing conditions. Only OpenWay Riva applies intelligence exactly where it's needed—everywhere it's needed—to improve safety, efficiency and reliability.
