HiveMQ and 4IR Solutions Partner to Enable Cloud-First Industrial IoT Deployments
4IR adds HiveMQ to fully managed, hybrid cloud infrastructure to help manufacturers deploy advanced IIoT use cases rapidly
22 June 2023 – Landshut, Germany - HiveMQ and 4IR Solutions today announced a partnership to help customers deploy cloud-first, integrated, and extremely scalable Industrial IoT solutions that enable improved factory productivity. 4IR’s FactoryStack and PharmaStack are curated Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings for life science and general manufacturers that now include HiveMQ to move MQTT data reliably, securely, and scalably from the factory to the cloud.
“Our primary goal is to remove complexities for our customers who are working to scale their plant floor systems using the cloud,” said James Burnand, CEO, 4IR Solutions. “One of the primary challenges manufacturers face is extracting value from factory data at enterprise scale. We chose to partner with HiveMQ because their MQTT platform moves data seamlessly with any number of connections to sensors, machines or factories to the cloud where manufacturers can extract value from that data to improve operations.”
4IR and HiveMQ will work together to help manufacturing customers deploy a cloud infrastructure with secure, best-in-class technologies. The solutions are powered by Inductive Automation’s Ignition, an industrial automation toolset that allows users to connect to PLCs, devices, databases and more. HiveMQ is the MQTT platform that moves data from Ignition into the cloud. Customers can deploy in-house or via a fully-managed service from 4IR.
“Over the past several years we’ve seen manufacturers rapidly working to digitize the factory, but what is going to take them to the next level is fully embracing the cloud as they scale up,” said Dominik Obermaier, Co-Founder and CTO, HiveMQ. “4IR has the expertise to talk to both operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) teams to help them bridge the gap and solve challenges. We are already working together on some large customer implementations and look forward to expanding the relationship.”
