Suitable for constrained environments with low network bandwidth or high latency, and for remote devices with limited memory and processing capabilities, the MQTT protocol’s light payloads reduce bandwidth needs for high-volume data collection from mechanical and enclosed equipment and facilitate remote execution of real-time status monitoring and event handling.

Advantech is now offering a complete range of MQTT-capable products, such as its WebAccess software platform, WISE-4000 wireless sensor nodes and ADAM-3600 RTU and ADAM-6000 Ethernet I/O modules, ECU-1152 protocol gateways and SmartSwarm 300 cellular IIoT gateway. Advantech’s IoT devices, specifically the WISE-4000 series and ADAM-6000 series, can be directly connected to the cloud or ERP/MES systems and communicate using the MQTT protocol without needing a gateway or converter. Such device-to-cloud architectures not only reduce equipment costs and facilitate device authentication, access control and network intelligence, they also offer nearly instant communication between enterprise applications and the cloud network.

Integrated with Advantech’s WebAccess/SCADA software, Advantech devices with MQTT capabilities support plug-and-play installation on cloud platforms. This eliminates the time-consuming configuration of individual sensor nodes and reduces installation costs and turnaround time for large data acquisition systems.

Advantages of using the MQTT protocol with WebAccess/SCADA include the ability to resume operations from any breakpoint without data losses. Moreover, during network interruptions, data can be buffered in the WISE-4000 module until network communication is resumed and a client device reads the data. This not only prevents data loss, it also allows users to manage the information flow to network nodes.
