Manage all of your devices, locations, customers, transactions and other aspects that may be unique to your business.

Streamline Your Operations

When it comes to the Internet of Things, Banyan makes it happen. We bridge the gap between business and technology by working as a trusted partner to companies operating large networks of unattended devices or equipment.

Canopy provides businesses with all of the tools necessary to manage and monitor a network at scale from a single centralized management platform.

An Overview of the Canopy architecture

Introducing Leaf, Our Endpoint Software Agent

Leaf, an easily extensible software agent, ensures secure device instrumentation within the Canopy IoT platform. It runs on any base operating system/device hardware platform. Leaf can be leveraged to centrally manage the distribution of software updates out to the Leaf agents that reside on the network of device endpoints. Also, it allows an operator to securely and safely execute remote commands on devices. Leaf runs on current versions of Linux, Windows and Mac OS. It supports both 32 and 64-bit architectures, including Intel® x86, ARM and MIPS chipsets.

Data Attributes

Upon installation, Leaf automatically begins sending common data attributes like memory, CPU temperature, available physical disc space and more to the Canopy Enterprise. Leaf can easily be extended to obtain additional attributes.

Device Instrumentation

Flexible device monitoring and interaction through an easily adaptable software agent (Leaf) that runs on any base operating system/device hardware platform. Device components can be locally controlled through the Canopy Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) to enable customer interaction.

Software Distribution

Canopy’s Software Distribution service is coupled with Leaf so that it can be leveraged to centrally manage the distribution of software updates out to the Leaf agents that reside on the network of device endpoints.

Preventative & Predictive Operations

Complex event processing for predictive analytics on data flowing through the platform.
