The EKRON Smart City system of systems platform is a revolutionized solution that helps cities with the digital transformation journey
Smart City systems management & Cyber
What is EKRON?
EKRON is a Smart City system of systems open platform for managing all the digital verticals (IT, IoT, OT, and every vertical with an API) of the city. As Ekron connects to everything in the city, it collects and processes information from different point solutions. Ekron draws a new layer of relevant information for stakeholders, using an AI engine.
Simple use case: Ekron knows when the best time for the sprinklers is to spray a public lawn, based on the information it collects from the WIFI or CCTV installations. There are no privacy issues. The EKRON platform contains a cyber mitigation engine that secures the city's infrastructures against cyber threats. Another pillar of Ekron, is a profound IT monitoring build-in solution. The monitoring, cyber, and AI engines produce a single-window view of the city's digital health.
Ekron's adaptive UI is smart and straightforward to use. The UI is customized upon the interest of the user and its role at the organization. Ekron deploys in the cloud or on-premises in disruptive pricing. Ekron freemium model enables IoT makers to use the platform for free in limited metrics.
The EKRON overview screen is a single-pane view of all city systems. As every digital system connects to EKRON, with just a glance, you can comprehend the digital health of the city.
Simple & Smart User Interface
Ekron's user interface is straightforward to use. The user chooses his points of interest in the city and customizes the UI easily
Every digital vertical with an API or native driver can plug in the EKRON platform. EKRON is a system of systems or manager of managers if you like, and there is no limit to type or number of verticals you can connect to.
Ekron brings point solutions that usually focuses on benefits with little attention paid to cyber risks, to work together in one secure platform.
Ekron's main building blocks are:
real-time monitoring of everything that can be monitored
integration of vertical (smart...XYZ)
interoperability between point solutions
smart user interface
EKRON SDN Gateway
Ekron SDN is a Linux-based virtualized solution that scales up from small edge computing machines to commercial enterprise servers. From a single machine to an HA array, from the Data Center temperature to 70° C passive Colling IoT setup. The Ekron software is a highly modular system that runs the same software image across the Ekron family. If you need a powerful internet gateway as part of the EKRON SOS (System of Systems) solution, you can use the EKRON SDN with different hardware settings. EKRON SOS monitors EKRON SDN as it monitors everything else
The EKRON virtual platform is an SDN solution for the enterprise sector. EKRON combines Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) like the SD-WAN, NGFW, UTM, and IDP. The software-driven EKRON gives you the flexibility to create innovative services, such as border FW, Edge Routers, SD-WAN, SD-Branch, Site-to-Site IPsec VPN using edge computing or commercial enterprise servers, i.e., Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS). EKRON runs on an X86 platform with CPU and a memory in different sizes. Adding more RAM to the physical machine brings EKRON to skyrocket performance. EKRON gives you the freedom to scale according to the organization's changes and business demands and eliminates the operational complexities of deploying multiple CPE types to meet many customer service needs. System admins use the EKRON to implement flexible, secure, high-performance services on-premises. EKRON presents the same high-performance functionality as physical CPE, with the added flexibility of dynamic service creation in an open environment.
