Akamai unveils new IoT Edge Connect service for in-app messaging

Wednesday 12 June 2019 | 15:36 CET | News

Akamai has announced the launch of a new product in its Edge Cloud range that helps businesses connect internet of things devices and applications at scale. The new service, dubbed IoT Edge Connect, is designed to offer a secure framework and support for resource-constrained IoT devices and applications using Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) for messaging. Its architecture supports hundreds of millions of endpoints and 10 times more messages than other IoT or in-app messaging cloud solutions, said Akamai.

The service also reduces device battery drain and optimises data delivery speed and volume via an all-in-one data stream, distributed database and a key value store. Other benefits include end-to-end mutual authentication between connected endpoints and the Akamai Edge Cloud, allowing businesses to take full advantage of MQTT.
