Modernizing the Manufacturing Industry with MQTT
Many manufacturing organizations are beginning the process of modernizing their factory operations to achieve greater efficiency and flexibility. This modernization process requires a substantial upgrade of the existing software infrastructure. A cornerstone of factory modernization is the ability to break down the data silos that prevent a business from obtaining an accurate picture of their overall operation. Several factors favor the use of MQTT as the standard protocol for modernizing the messaging infrastructure of a factory:
– The MQTT protocol uses a publish/subscribe architecture
– MQTT creates interoperability between the many different systems deployed in a factory
– MQTT provides the bi-directional messaging that a scalable, reliable, and secure messaging system requires
– MQTT can easily integrate with existing security systems
Due to its performance scaling capabilities, 100% implementation of all MQTT 5 features, and professional support services the HiveMQ Enterprise MQTT broker is well suited as the MQTT platform used to operate the messaging system that is needed for modern digitized manufacturing. This whitepaper discusses the goals of modernizing the manufacturing industry and the architecture patterns for the modernization as well as how the factory can be connected using MQTT & HiveMQ.
