HiveMQ Releases HiveMQ Edge an Open-Source Edge-Optimized MQTT Broker

Written by Stephen Vicinanza

HiveMQ releases HiveMQ Edge, an open-source edge-optimized MQTT broker. The HiveMQ Edge is a software gateway that is available now that can help manufacturing organizations simplify and modernize their Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure.

The HiveMQ Edge system helps the IoT infrastructure by converting proprietary OT protocols like Modbus and OPC UA into the standardized MQTT. The resulting message basis can then be formatted at the edge for easier integration in enterprise and cloud systems.

In industrial computing, manufacturers face several challenges, when it comes to integrating industrial data from OT to IT. Those challenges include diverse endpoints with legacy connectivity interfaces and point-to-point data integration patterns that can limit scalability.

HiveMQ Edge supports the Unified Namespace architecture, which allows data to be mapped from various sources into a structured and centralized data hub that then allows real-time data analysis.

“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.”

Key Benefits:

  • Open source with a rich SDK that maximizes extensibility
  • Edge-optimized MQTT broker to reduce costs
  • Plug and Play integrations for protocols like Sparkplug and OPC UA
  • Seamless data integration that enables Unified Namespace
  • Intuitive UI and API-based operability
