Support for Sparkplug
Sparkplug adds additional context to MQTT data to get the most out of IIoT deployments. HiveMQ is a fully Sparkplug compatible broker as defined by the latest Sparkplug 3.0 specification. 

HiveMQ Edge
HiveMQ Edge converts proprietary OT protocols like Modbus and OPC-UA into the MQTT format at the edge, simplifying the integration of manufacturing data with enterprise and cloud applications.

HiveMQ MQTT Client Libraries
HiveMQ produces reliable and performant open-source MQTT clients, and supports other MQTT-compliant clients to simplify development cycles.

HiveMQ's open API lets applications send and receive data as JSON objects over standard HTTP and secure HTTPS.

HiveMQ has delivered the stability and reliability that we required for our system. We have been running the VDS using HiveMQ for 4 years and the HiveMQ broker has not gone down. It is rock solid, completely reliable. When we do have to restart the broker, it is a very fast process so our downtime is minimal. This is very important since we can’t stop the factory assembly line.

A big reason we chose HiveMQ is that we can run HiveMQ everywhere: AWS, Google, Azure, really on any cloud or on-premise. We can run HiveMQ on top of OpenShift or Kubernetes. There is no vendor lock-in with HiveMQ and we aren’t forced to send our data to a single vendor’s platform. The ability to run HiveMQ on-premise or on customer-provided infrastructure is also an important requirement. HiveMQ gives us this freedom.
