Modernizing the Manufacturing Industry with MQTT

Manufacturing organizations are turning to IoT technologies to modernize their manufacturing operations to be more efficient, cost effective and responsive to market demands. A key to modernization is breaking down the data silos and proprietary protocols that dominate traditional manufacturing operations. A new software architecture based on the MQTT messaging protocol is being used by some of the more advanced manufacturing companies in the world. In this white paper, we discuss the motivation and drivers behind software modernization, the technical challenges and architectural patterns that can be used to deliver a reliable, scalable and flexible message platform for a connected factory.


Implementing Interoperability for Smart Manufacturing

Data interoperability is a significant challenge to implement smart manufacturing solutions. Proprietary hardware and software often create data silos that make information sharing difficult. Sparkplug, is a new specification built on MQTT, to address the needs of data interoperability in manufacturing and industrial automation use cases. HiveMQ is active in the Sparkplug specification process and has developed a number of education resources for our community. Check out our Sparkplug Solutions page to learn more.
