OpenVault Obtains Patent for Faster Data Retrieval and Processing

OpenVault, a leading source of revenue and data-driven network enhancement and actionable insights solutions for the broadband industry, announced that it was recently granted a patent for techniques that enable faster data retrieval and processing.

U.S. Patent No. 11,275,594, “Intelligent Data Storage and Processing Using FPGA Devices,” aims to eliminate the bottlenecks that increasingly occur as the amount of data flowing through systems exceeds the available processing power.

The patent describes a method in which an array of field-programmable gates (FPGAs) can be specifically configured to receive and perform pipelined processing on streaming data in such a way as to accelerate seek-and-fetch functionality.

While indexing data can speed up recovery, log information is often not indexed. Developing inverted indexes needed to correlate telemetry and logs to feed machine learning models is a difficult task for general-purpose processors. This technology allows a user to quickly deploy a custom FPGA-based processor designed to solve this problem on unstructured data on the fly.

Joe Lancaster, Chief Strategy Officer of OpenVault
Broadband providers face technological shifts towards more flexible, but also more complex, networks to remain competitive. This technology gives providers instant insight into network health and enables seamless network automation at any scale.

Tony Costa, CTO of OpenVault
The faster our broadband operator customers can gain insight into their networks and optimize performance through automation, the more profitable their networks become while improving the customer experience across their entire subscriber base. Using the research and development capabilities of our acquisition of VelociData last year, we have played a leadership role in helping industry and connected consumers extract maximum value from available data.
