ControlBEAM™ Issued Patent for Interoperable, Event-Defined Systems for Edge Computing

United States, California, Irvine – 02-21-2020 ( — New Patent Bolsters Licensing of Edge Computing Platform to Microcontroller and Edge Gateway Manufacturers, 5G Network Operators, and Smart Cities. 

On January 28, 2020, ControlBEAM was awarded its sixth U.S. patent for unique methods incorporated within its BEAM RT™ event-driven, no-code, portable runtime system for edge computing. This system comprises an event and query processor that generate applications, and the platform itself, entirely from an event ledger, removing the need to code and compile applications. This architecture enables new and refined system processes to be distributed real-time to connected devices. 

The new patent, US 10545933, describes methods to: 1) synchronize and execute event-defined system processes, and 2) synchronize and accept an event-defined connection (party relationship) for sharing system information. 

ControlBEAM is leading the evolution from the concept of Software-Defined Everything to Event-Defined Everything™, including event-defined computing processes and connections that form a dynamic ecosystem of interoperable systems and devices. 

With a footprint under 20 kilobytes, the BEAM RT runtime system can easily be embedded into any microcontroller as well as run on edge gateways, smartphones, and cloud servers.   BEAMable™ systems are transported between connected devices and processed in-memory to dynamically render a user interface, manage data, and/or control a device without any cloud dependency, providing native app performance while minimizing network traffic.

“The ControlBEAM platform was developed ground-up to define, manage, and control everything through distributed events, enabling intelligent and autonomous systems to simply interoperate at scale”, notes Doug Migliori, Chief Architect at ControlBEAM, Inc. “The platform is an extremely compact, unified solution for Edge Computing that redefines how applications and systems are built and deployed – eliminating the constraints and inefficiencies of programming languages.”

The ControlBEAM platform can support any data-centric application from a device on/off switch to an e-commerce website to task-driven mobile workforce management and mission-critical supply chain management – all modeled as event-defined systems.
