Paul Simon wrote that it’s all happening at the zoo. It’s all happening at the edge these days in this market. I just wrote about a new edge orchestration service. This is news from HiveMQ about some more Edge-Optimized technology.
HiveMQ announced the availability of HiveMQ Edge, an open source software gateway with an edge-optimized MQTT broker. HiveMQ Edge helps manufacturing organizations simplify and modernize their Industrial IoT infrastructure by converting proprietary OT protocols like Modbus and OPC-UA into the standardized MQTT format at the edge for easy integration with enterprise and cloud systems.
“We see a clear need for HiveMQ Edge in the market as manufacturers struggle to solve complex edge connectivity challenges on their path to digital transformation,” said Dominik Obermaier, Co-founder and CTO, HiveMQ. “We’re making it faster and easier to connect the edge and reap the full benefits of IIoT with an open gateway that converts proprietary and legacy protocols to MQTT. We added a built-in broker for efficient messaging so users can deploy rapidly, drive costs down, and scale up easily.”
HiveMQ Edge helps companies modernize their IIoT infrastructure with these benefits:
- Seamless data integration to enable a Unified Namespace
- Plug-and-play integrations for protocols like Sparkplug and OPC UA
- An edge-optimized MQTT broker to drive costs down
- Intuitive UI and API-based operability
- Open source with a rich SDK for maximum extensibility
HiveMQ invites developers to download the OSS version of HiveMQ Edge on Github, connect it to devices at the edge, run workloads and provide feedback in the HiveMQ Community Forum.
