Constellation, a company focused on the power of Big Data and the facilitation of blockchain technology, has now taken a step towards integrating another frontier technology, IoT. Constellation has integrated the Quant Network, which will enable companies to build cross-platform and interoperable Big Data, IoT and AI production, prototypes, and sandbox test environments.
These environments will be powered by Constellation’s HyperGraph and Quant Overledger’s interoperability capabilities – with 11 permissioned and permissionless blockchain networks and protocols.
The importance of this integration lies at the heart of interoperability and interconnectivity of the two technologies. Constellation has already branched out with Chainlink in order to better associate smart contracts with its Big Data capabilities and will now be looking to do the same with IoT.
The hope is through this integration is that there is the possibility of opening up large data sets by HyperGraph to access new users, clients, and networks through Overledger.
Quant, with its world-first blockchain operating system called Overledger, allows customers to choose between multiple blockchains and protocols to create decentralized applications. It also enables enterprises to benefit by creating a single gateway connecting to blockchain infrastructures.
Meanwhile, Constellation provides a secure communication protocol, a network called HyperGraph, built to process and organize data streams, developer tools to integrate with existing data management and tech stacks, and consensus as a service, based on reputation, for real-time democratic verification of data.
To further the integration, Constellation will create a connector to join the Overledger, and will provide a new set of features, to the growing network of protocols. These will include consensus-as-a-service and the use of PRO (proof of reputable observations), securing data pipelines, and the HyperGraph network that topologically orders data for high computational needs (artificial intelligence and machine learning).
Constellation’s integrations and partnerships thus far have been pretty impressive. Their potential has been identified by the United States Airforce, where Constellation’s technology will help securely unlock traditionally siloed and non-accessible data and data sources. This is commonly referred to as Multi-Domain Command and Control (MDC2) at the U.S. Air Force.
More so, they have also integrated with Chainlink to provide data and blockchain services, validate streaming data for the Chainlink ecosystem by becoming a Chainlink node operator.
This integration was also a key step in the interoperability of technologies as through Constellations “Blockchain for Big Data” approach, the company is able to assist in providing data infrastructure tools for developers to enable interoperability between legacy and cloud data systems.
