The HiveMQ Enterprise Bridge Extension makes it possible to stream MQTT data between different brokers and broker clusters. For instance, organizations can use the bridge extension to set up regional MQTT broker clusters that stream key MQTT data to a central MQTT broker in a data center that allows for detailed data analysis across regions.
The Enterprise Bridge Extension is a scalable and secure solution to bridge between a HiveMQ broker and any other MQTT broker. Features of the bridge extension include:
HiveMQ Enterprise Bridge Extension is available for free download and evaluation. This extension only works with HiveMQ Professional or HiveMQ Enterprise.
The evaluation version is limited to operate for only 5 hours. You will need to restart HiveMQ each time you want to reset the 5-hour limit. Please contact HiveMQ sales if you would like a longer evaluation license.
This extension is preinstalled in your download of the HiveMQ platform and disabled. To enable the HiveMQ Enterprise Bridge Extension, locate the folder of the extension in your HiveMQ installation and remove the DISABLED file.
The extension is now enabled and needs to be configured for your individual MQTT broker bridges and topics. See the configuration chapter in the official documentation for all possible configuration options.
You can verify that the extension is installed and configured properly by checking your HiveMQ log files.
