Skkynet Enhanced DataHub

Jan. 11, 2022

Skkynet Cloud Systems Inc. released a new version of DataHub middleware. DataHub middleware for secure, real-time industrial data communications now connects to industrial data historians from Aveva, InfluxData and OSIsoft.  This release also can to generate alarms and notifications, and handle thousands of MQTT connections, including MQTT Sparkplug B.

Industrial data from virtually any source can be securely consolidated and transmitted in real time to corporate analytical systems and data lakes to power AI engines, synchronize digital twin implementations, and feed KPI calculations. 

Security is based on Skkynet technology that uses outbound-only connections to ensure that no attack surface is exposed on a local plant network. It requires no IT policy changes, no open inbound firewall ports, no VPNs, and no extra hardware―while allowing real-time bi-directional data flow through DMZs and network proxies up to the cloud.

The new release also provides enhanced support for MQTT, strengthening IoT communications by allowing users to integrate multiple connections and providing them with more reliable verification of data delivery and status of connected devices. Additional new features include the ability to generate alarms and notifications from process data as it flows through the system, and to send them via email, text messages, and social media.
