Integration of MQTT Data into Amazon Kinesis and AWS using HiveMQ MQTT platform


Easily integrate MQTT data directly into the Amazon Kinesis Data Streams service and with the broader AWS service offerings. The HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for Amazon Kinesis makes it possible to:

  • Use flexible extension configuration to leverage Amazon Kinesis Data Streams and unlock the use of additional AWS data processing services on MQTT data.

  • Forward MQTT messages from IoT devices to one or more Amazon Kinesis Data Streams via the HiveMQ broker.

  • Consume Kinesis records from Amazon Kinesis Data Streams and publish to one or more MQTT topics.

  • Ensure that records from your Kinesis Data Streams are forwarded to MQTT clients as expected with the scalability and high availability of the HiveMQ broker.

  • Filter and transform MQTT and Kinesis messages bidirectionally at runtime with the HiveMQ customization SDK.

Ingest MQTT data from any IoT or IIoT device in its original format into Amazon Kinesis, including payload, topic, timestamps, and more.

Specify MQTT Topic with HiveMQ MQTT Platform

Specify MQTT Topic

Deliver MQTT messages from specific or relevant topics to Amazon Kinesis. Optimize processing time and reduce noise.

Linear Scalability

Linear Scalability

Scale easily to meet fluctuating demands. Run locally or on the cloud for ultimate flexibility.

Business Critical Reliability with HiveMQ MQTT Platform

Critical Reliability

Operate mission-critical systems reliably 24/7 with zero message loss and redundant clustering technology.

HiveMQ and AWS

The Amazon Kinesis extension is part of a broader set of technologies that you can leverage to unlock the power of IoT with AWS. We have a complete solution page detailing this approach.

HiveMQ Extensions

HiveMQ extensions are plugins that provide seamless integration with streaming services, databases, data warehouses, and security services. There is a Custom SDK to build tailored extensions for specific integration needs.

Scalability with HiveMQ MQTT Platform


Extensions usage scales along with the rest of the cluster and each enterprise extension is designed and tested for use in a cluster.

Availability with HiveMQ MQTT Platform


Extensions run on each cluster node, so if a node exits the cluster the extension will be present on the replacement node.

Managebility with HiveMQ MQTT Platform


No separate nodes to manage. Easily manage cluster-wide configuration in a Kubernetes cluster with the HiveMQ Operator.
