Metromatics presents the ALTA advanced edge gateway, recently released
by Monnit Corporation for IoT applications.
The new gateway aggregates data from feature-rich Monnit wireless
sensors to any cloud provider such as Amazon AWS. Coupling the prominent MQTTS
protocol and the IoT’s broadest sensor range, Monnit’s edge gateway fulfils a
key IoT mission of making deployments more agile and productive.
With the expansive Internet of Things inundating businesses with
billions of data points, the edge gateway helps them cope by decentralising
data processing and bringing this processing closer to data generating
‘things’. Firms will benefit from spontaneous analytics, instant action based
on metrics and support for enhanced situation-based applications.
In-the-field authentication of
The edge gateway features a web interface for configuring and managing
Monnit wireless sensors, as well as designating MQTT brokers. As the
Ethernet-based gateway receives sensor data, the gateway ‘fingerprints’ the
data with a cryptographic validation stamp. This authenticated data is then
transmitted to a cloud broker (or multiple brokers), where it arrives in a
standard format. The edge gateway’s integrated macros enable data configuration
in virtually any format, such as JSON or XML, making it a powerful tool for
data analysis and action.
Key features of ALTA edge gateway include scalability with one gateway
accommodating up to 100 wireless sensors; security with data authentication via
unique cryptographic validation fingerprint; robust processing with Linux
UBUNTU single board computer with a 32-bit ARM; and redundancy with data
transmission to multiple cloud providers or MQTT servers, ensuring operational
reliability in the event of server failure
Similar to all of Monnit’s US-made gateways, the new edge gateway supports
Monnit’s line of 80+ ALTA long-range wireless sensors.
