MQTT provides security protection & shield to prevent data getting attacked by intruders. This publish or subscribe messaging protocol allows client authentication which accredits a two-way hand shake. In relation to security in MQTT Broker , identity, authentication, authorization, and encryption should be taken heed of to protect your data. Know how best the Bevywise MQTT Broker handles security.
MQTT Gateway acts as an intermediate agent between the sensors and the MQTT Broker/Server providing a data logging solution. It has built-in functionality to detect all available sensors on the network running around the gateway. The detected sensor and device are allowed to communicate with each other and managed from the central IoT platform. It also advertises itself, and hence the MQTT clients will be able to find the gateway.
Secure the sensor / device in your facility behind the Gateway. Connect your sensor / IoT edge device inside your facility with a Gateway to any IoT Platform / Cloud platform for secured IoT solution. Gateway sends / publishes messages to the connected platform or server. Also, it aggregate and send sensors data to the central IoT Platform. It also supports TLS / SSL encryption for all data sent from an IoT sensor / devices connected. You can enable secure communication & mqtt connection between devices by creating your own certificates.
The communication between the sensor / device can be either via Wireless or Bluetooth. These mediums support MQTT-SN based sensors. You can easily connect your Sensor/Device to the Gateway via Bluetooth. For MQTT and Websocket, Communication is either wired or long range wireless. By default, Bevywise MQTT Broker listens on port 1883 for MQTT client connections when the gateway is connected. On the other hand, The MQTT broker will connect the MQTT Client on 8883 port if TLS is enabled.
The MQTT gateway acts as a bridge for the IoT / MQTT sensors and devices. When the MQTT devices you manage distributed across different locations, we need data on a shared server for analysis. You can deploy it at each place and consolidate the data in a central location.
Industrial IoT gateway works seamlessly with IBM Watson, Azure IoT, AWS IoT and Google Cloud IoT. It decodes & send data it receives from the sensors to the IoT platform in MQTT protocol format once user subscribes to its MQTT topic. And also, the gateway can be added with more protocol interfaces as needed. It runs on the Windows, Linux, and can be customized to store data locally and a User interface to manage local devices.
