Many have referred to the Internet of Things (IoT) as the “third wave” of the internet evolution. Consumers can’t help but notice the increasing array of connected devices coming online, ranging from washing machines and refrigerators to personal fitness trackers and automobiles, and even intelligent machines imbedded into our clothing, that are popping up everywhere. What many consumers may not realize is that industry is also getting on board in a big way with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). At FrameFlow, we’re acutely aware of how the growing IIoT is dramatically impacting our commercial world, and how important it is to monitor the performance of IIoT devices and sensors.
As FrameFlow evolves with our maturing technological landscape, we are pleased to announce that our software is now capable of monitoring a virtually unlimited range of devices by the leveraging the power of Message Queue Telemetry Transport, aka MQTT. Why is this important? MQTT is a versatile and lightweight messaging protocol that is finding an increasing number of applications on the Internet of Things (IoT).
