OptiRTC is an American technology company that has developed a software as a service platform for civil infrastructure. The OptiRTC platform is a cloud-native platform that integrates sensors, forecasts, and environmental contexts to actively control stormwater infrastructure.[1][2] The OptiRTC platform is built on Microsoft Azure and uses internet of things technology to predicatively manage distributed water systems.[3]


In June 2011, the OptiRTC team partnered with ioBridge to develop smart city tech based on ioBridge's hardware solution[buzzword] and OptiRTC's platform.[4]

In November 2013, the OptiRTC team was assigned a patent for "Combined water storage and detention system and method of precipitation harvesting and management" that was co-invented by Marcus Quigley.[5]

In November 2014, the New York Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) selected Opti technology as the winner of the first Smart City Expo World Congress.[6]

In December 2014, OptiRTC was formally incorporated as an independent company through a spin-out from Geosyntec Consultants.[7]

In January 2015, the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) published a research paper on High Performance Green Infrastructure, which focused primarily on distributed real-time control of stormwater infrastructure.[8]

In January 2016, Opti began working with Particle to provide the communications layer for Opti's products.[9]
