Onica by Rackspace Technology partnered with Century Engineering, LLC a Kleinfelder Company to extend and enhance an innovative stormwater management solution its team developed, named the SmartSWM™ product that leverages AWS. Onica supported the Internet of Things (IoT) components of the project by designing custom SmartSWM™ hardware and an IoT backend on AWS to realize a more resilient, reliable, and secure infrastructure solution. This helped refine the solution to improve functionality and provide automated, real-time remote stormwater monitoring and IoT connectivity to local weather forecasts.
“Onica by Rackspace Technology was able to listen to our objectives, review our existing system, and apply their in-depth knowledge of IoT and automation to help us implement industry best practices into the SmartSWM™ product,” said Robert “Bob” Bathurst, PE, MSIA, D.WRE, LEED AP®, Vice President, Civil Engineering Department Manager, Century Engineering, LLC a Kleinfelder Company. “The system is a lot more reliable and secure thanks to Onica’s support.”
