IoT Simulator 2.2 Release

IoT Simulator 2.2 Release

Simulating various scenarios is essential for testing & developing real-time devices & managers. We believe that event configuration should be much easier & simple so that we can spend more time on validation & analysing the final data. We at Bevywise always strive hard to make our solutions easier & faster for our customers. Hence, we enable CSV Import option in IoT simulator to configure the IoT events to publish time-based messages. With a new update you can save your time by submitting your pre-defined data in csv file.

Assign a bulk publishing event

Sending events with different variable data at different times that is creating a time-based message publishing will make the simulator event generation more versatile & robust. CSV importer will allow you to assign a bulk publishing event during a specific time interval. You can configure the IoT events by uploading your pre-defined data set as csv file. This allows you to add or update events at one time, avoiding the need for updating multiple times.

CSV import option will simplify & saves time on the IoT event configuration. With the new update you will be able to replace the time-consuming methods & get your events to be published in an effortless, simple & faster way.

Supports JSON array

For all IoT implementations, JSON has become a default data format because of its light weightness and scalability which makes it easy to get & load the requested data quickly. JSON is preferred for all IoT applications since it can self-describe. JSON is a way to store information in an organized & easy-to-access manner. The previous version already provides support to simulate more complex nested MQTT JSON data.

Most devices use the JSON array to transfer data in a simple & efficient way. To enable testing in a more efficient way, we have made a simulator to publish messages with multiple data and information. With the new update, IoT simulator provides support to simulate JSON array data which help you check the efficiency of your devices more accurately. By this functionality, you can now simulate any level of JSON to help you test your manager application.

Announcing MQTT 5 Beta release

Announcing MQTT 5 Beta release

“All good things must be replaced with something better”.

We are happy and excited to announce the release of MQTT version 5. MQTT is the more suitable and best available protocol when it comes to IoT development. The extensive endorsement of protocol has created a more hype for further upgrade of MQTT specification. Though MQTT protocol is good as 3.1.1 specification, it is further better in version 5 specification. Bevywise MQTT Broker now supports MQTT 5 specification.

Why MQTT 5?

Though, MQTT 3.1.1 is perfectly scalable protocol specification, the jump from MQTT 3.1.1 to 5 is because of its feature – packed protocol specification. The main function of this key rich update is that it caters enhancement for scalability and large scale industrial deployments.

Absolute Error Handling – An improved error checking provides a more readable information about the error which instructs about the reasons for disconnection. Error handling is favourable for diagnosis to know what actually happened.

Perfect Load Balancing – With the support of shared subscriptions the client load balancing is possible. Shared subscription is an immense method to deliver messages across different MQTT subscribers with standard MQTT mechanisms.

Facile Message processing – Payload format indicator & content type ensures the correct processing of each message without the need of looking into actual payload.

MQTT 5 specification will have its foot prints in all sort of industrial deployments because of its rich features. It has become the apparent and discernible choice for the majority of IoT applications.

We are happy to announce that Bevywise MQTT Broker now supports MQTT 5 beta version. This specification is initially available only for ubuntu users. We will provide the availability for other users soon.

For any suggestions or clarifications, kindly reach us. We would be happy to hear from you.

Announcing Hosted MQTT Broker – CrystalMQ

Announcing Hosted MQTT Broker – CrystalMQ

“The world of reality has its limits,the world of imagination is limitless.” –Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Planning to build an IOT Application that collects data from your cutting edge devices to analyze, process and interpret. Hence, IOT is a complete solution provider for all functional areas.

What are my possible options?

Option 1: The Big4s AWS, Google, Azure & IBM provides a separate device communication layer that allows the developers to choose a list of back end storage and the processing engine needed to build a complete solution that enables the devices to communicate. The starting price for the communication engine will be affordable, but utilizing multiple services you will  end up paying more.

Option 2: Service providers like cloudMQTT provides standalone device communication layer that does communication process and provides building your application at the edge. However it uses the minimal data integration points at the back end to move data to the back end servers.

Option 3: Completely rigid platform that aims to tackle the need for any vertical. This will help you build your requirements for a specific functionality.

Option provided does not fit requirement

Diverse and constantly changing customer requirements need high-quality solution provider. In the market the customer does significant amount of analysis in choosing the best sub-system required to complete their implementation. This finally increases the overall cost of maintenance, upgrade, managing multiple services and servers for your solution.

To avoid the disparity between customers, technology offers and customer service, we have created a framework for device manufacturers to get their solution built by themselves.

Announcing CrystalMQ – Hosted MQTT Broker with maximum flexibility.

As a first step, we are launching CrystalMQ our hosted MQTT Broker solution using the Bevywise MQTTRoute which is a secured MQTT Server application that comes with options to deploy your AI / ML code on the server and comes with widget that can be used to build your complete user interface.

MQTT Broker 2.0 Released – Things you need to know

MQTT Broker 2.0 Released – Things you need to know

Industry 4.0 is the talk of the town since it was first announced. It has become the top priority of current industrial development, which drives industries towards better productivity to remain in competition. Developing IoT / IIoT application should 100% cover the requirements for building up a complete Industry 4.0. Therefore, we have kept this in mind and transformed the MQTT Broker into an IoT application framework. The phrase “Eat your own dog food” helps us identify the enhancement to develop a complete IoT application framework over MQTT Broker. Not like other mqtt broker, by just sending and collecting data, however, our new version MQTTRoute has more application oriented custom options. For instance, it provides a complete IoT application including user interface customization, custom storage configuration and Data preparation.

User Interface Customization

User Interface is one of the most critical success factors for Industry 4.0. As the utilities of user interface differs with industrial requirements, it is fair to provide a custom UI option. The Extendable user Interface module provides option to present the data in a way your industry needs. You can configure your dashboards to add live charts and graphs. You will be able to design your user interface to make it flexible for your industry. Our next version of the MQTTRoute will be focussed on dynamically adding widgets from the User Interface for live dashboard & historical reports.

MQTTRoute – Custom Storage Configuration

Storing and retrieving data alone will not make any improvement in your industrial race rather than it requires a perfect analytics. However, it needs data visualization and interpretation for powerful analysis and decision making.  Hence it is best to hook the received payload and store the data into any of your analytics. MQTTRoute has an extension to store the data in any of the big data engine for powerful analysis. This functionality was already available. In addition, the new additional hooks will help you add event based triggers with comparison of event data & analysed data and notify the dashboard and other communication channels.

Data Preparation

ML & AI works best when the data already collected is processed better. Scheduling module helps in processing of data on a predefined time interval. You will able to aggregate data using your own algorithm and store it in the indexed buckets of elastic or your customized storage engine. You can add your own widgets and notifications to the dashboards as required for your industry.

This new IoT application framework will help building and managing industrial IoT applications faster and much easier.

Feel free to write to support for a complete Demo.

Voice Control Devices using Alexa & Googlehome

Voice Control Devices using Alexa & Googlehome

Human race has been tied to actions by touch for a prolonged period. Touch is something bound to the extend to which you can stretch your arms and body. Sound and Vision goes a long way beyond horizons. The advent of image processing techniques largely influenced the addition of visual recognition to the machines. Along with the Industry 4.0 and the current home automation trend, a lot of innovation is happening over Sound. We can control everything around us with voice using voice hearing robots like Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa, Microsofts’ Cortana, Google Home / Assistant.

Home Automation leads the Voice Race

Voice and IoT go hand in hand, freeing users from being tied down by screens, data and physical inputs. Voice commands have arguably become one of the greatest and quickest way to control home devices. Just give a voice command from anywhere to automate your device at home. Turning on the air-conditioning before actually stepping inside the home. Turning off the lights when no one is in the room and controlling the brightness of light for energy efficiency. Adding connectivity to fire safety devices can provide house owners with the ability to monitor remotely and even send alerts to neighbors in the event of emergency. When you develop smart home for your customers, you need to get the IoT platform that already has voice integration. Bevywise IoT platform is one such platform that comes out of the box with integration for Google Home / Assist & Amazon Alexa.

Voice control in Industries

Industries today has not started embracing the voice as a primary medium. The world has been fed up with typing for a long time. It is time to rethink the integration of voice into the manufacturing echo system. Sirens has been used for a long time to mark time and alarms for emergency. However, we believe more reporting in the future will happen using voice than the need for texual reading and writing. Wherever you go the lighting and temperature controls all perform in concert to optimize your comfort based on your pre-determined personal indictors. In order to check the growth of a particular year, you can use voice control and this will create a graph show-casting the year’s growth in click through rates. This will eventually replace going through files manually.

We can strengthen the security of the industry instead of swiping cards. In addition, The proper functioning of your machines can be monitored periodically with a voice command anywhere, anytime. In order to start the meeting, just give a voice command to your voice assistant, it will turn on the video conference system and dial into the conference hall. The automation creates intelligent processes for monitoring and decision-making and to economize the supply chain and production.

Voice control in Health Care

With the advent of technology in medical care, we are generating a lot of medical records in the format of images and textual PDF. We are storing medical records in a highly secure environment. These data are highly analysed today to make very predictive solutions. One of the major integration we forsee for the medical care for the physicians are the integration of voice. We believe that physicians will be using more and more voice to pull out the medical records of patients and draw conclusions. This will be highly useful during surgical operations. Pulling records using voice will highly save time than manual entry of data on the screens.

The technology of voice recognization has come and long way so that the tools and devices today can understand variations in voice and also identify the owner to act accordingly.

You can connect your devices to the IoT Platform today by signing up to a fresh account.

Refer to the help documentation for how to integrate voice using Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

IoT Simulator 2.0 Release

IoT Simulator 2.0 Release

Security is one of the major concerns of the IoT Manager applications. Keeping this in mind, we built the manager applications with different level of security. IoT Network Simulator is enhanced to support all manager applications based on their security practices. Similar to the previous version, the simulator supports all its options from the user interface itself.

IoT Network simulator for AWS IoT core / Azure IoT hub

The User interface will provide options based on the IoT applications. For example Azure IoT hub supports SAS Token and Certificate based authentication. Users will be able to create a specific network for the Azure IoT core and able to create devices that handshakes with the IoT hub based on the details specified when configuring the device. Similarly, this is possible for the AWS IOT as well.

Simulating IoT Network for Other Manager applications

For all other manager applications like Bevywise IoT Platform, Losant , and others, you will be able to specify a single certificate at the common settings page and get your devices connected to the manager application.

Device level SSL Security

Azure IoT / AWS IoT manages every device to have an unique certificate. In addition, IoT Network simulator supports configuration of the root Certificate in the settings window and ensures that you specify each and every client certificate in the device configuration screen. The WILL , QoS , retain , event messages and command messages configuration are the same as before.

Individual Device IP Address

Simulator runs on a single machine and simulates all its devices. But, The manager will be seeing all the devices from one Host (IP Address). This contradicts the realtime Simulation. In order to overcome this, the 2.0 version has added support for using Virtual IP Address. By this functionality, each simulated device will connect to the manager application from different host Address.
