Chapter 3. Technology Preview

3.1. Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity

The Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity in AMQ Online provides remote service interfaces for connecting large numbers of IoT devices to a messaging back end. This Technology Preview feature includes the ability to use protocols common to IoT and to enable common IoT use cases, allowing you to register devices and credentials. For more information see Getting Started with Internet of Things (IoT) on AMQ Online.

For AMQ Online 1.3, two protocol adapters were added: LoRaWAN and SigFox. For more information, see IoT connectivity concepts.

In addition, a Red Hat DataGrid-based device registry was also added.

A simplified installation method is now available for IoT. Using the OpenShift Container Platform 4.x console, you can install the IoT components using the AMQ Online Operator.
