Ex-Avigilon Exec Backs Network Outage Prediction Startup (Optigo)

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Apr 01, 2016

Ex Avigilon VP of Engineering Danny Kam is putting his support behind networking startup Optigo.

Networking monitoring and analytics tools that can plot trends or send alerts on failed devices have been around for decades. Optigo Networks is building upon this concept by adding a neural network element to not just alert when a device is down, but notify operators before the device actually fails.

We spoke with Danny Kam, and Optigo's CEO Ping Yao about this idea and examine it's merit for security and IoT devices.
