To serve the needs of system integrators and engineers developing applications for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Moxa has launched the IIoT Gateway Starter Kit, which includes built-in support for Amazon Web Services (AWS). This data-acquisition-ready kit provides a reliable ready-to-use platform that simplifies development of IIoT solutions by providing all the essentials needed to get data from edge devices to cloud services, and with little to no programming required. This results in faster development, integration, and time to market, giving system integrators the boost they need.
The first main component of the starter kit is ThingsPro Gateway, a ready-to-run data-acquisition software platform that simplifies the complex task of transferring edge data to the cloud.
To simplify getting your data, ThingsPro Gateway provides a Modbus framework to easily connect with Modbus RTU/TCP devices and SCADA systems. It also includes extensive network support for 4G connectivity, wireless failover, firewalls, and VPN to ensure that your data can be securely retrieved from remote field sites.
Furthermore, with the built-in Cirrus Link Sparkplug SDK, you can easily connect your IIoT Gateway to the Inductive Automation Ignition Platform or another MQTT server.
