Kudzu Analytics

LoRaWAN™ technology has made the deployment of small to large scale sensor networks accessible to everyone. Kudzu Analytics takes care of complexities associated with managing and scaling your network, turning your installation into a production-grade, reliable infrastructure.

Kudzu Analytics is much more than just gateway infrastructure monitoring. By analyzing the aggregated information collected from your gateways, devices and other sources, it can provide elaborate analysis on network level.

We do the analytics, You take actions

Kudzu Analytics web platform goes beyond plain data visualization, suggesting actionalbe items based on the observed network situation.

Using our expertise and the LoRaWAN™ specification, we have created a collection of graded alerts that can be used to pinpoint faults on early stages, before they become critical on your network.

Analytics Infrastructure

How our platform integrates with your solution
icon
— Non-intrusive analytics that fits in any environment

Kudzu collects meta-data information from every packet received by your infrastructure. To achieve this, it integrates with your data stream in various distinct configurations. This allows Kudzu Analytics to fit into any environment.

In any configuration, the meta-data from your packets are anonymized and streamed into our analytics infrastructure for further processing. Application data are neither included, nor required.

infra-proxy

If you are planning to install new gateways to your infrastructure (or if you are developing your own gateway), you can shift the place where the analytics data are collected into your gateway.

This can be achieved using the Open-Source Kudzu Fork of the Semtech UDP forwarder. This is a fork of the official semtech UDP forwarded, with an additional analytics side-channel integrated.

Benefits:

  • Does not require additional components
  • Can target different LoRaWAN™ Network servers without additional configuration

infra-proxy

If you are already using a LoRaWAN™ solution based on the Semtech UDP protocol, you can use the Kudzu Proxy compoment to integrate analytics.

This is a lightweight service that blindly forwards all the received data into a remote server, while extracting the collected meta-data and pushing those into our infrastructure. From the Gateway’s point-of-view, a Kudzu Proxy seems identical to your LoRaWAN™ Network server.

Benefits:

  • Easily integrates with an existing solution
  • Just a single parameter change in the configuration
  • On-premises solution available

infra-proxy

If you have implemented you own, custm LoRaWAN™ deployment, or if you want even more fine-grained control over the data submitted to our servers, you can always interface with out analytics API endpoint.

Benefits:

  • Fully customizable analytics feed
  • Covers future cases, not yet accounted for
