What's a Smart MQTT Broker?

The power of DataHub emerges when you leverage it's smart abilities to deal with some of the limitations of MQTT, specifically in it's ability to 

  • Bidirectionally convert protocols - MQTT to OPC DA, OPC UA, OPC A&E and back to MQTT
  • Automatically extract data into an array of 
    • Name
    • Value
    • Quality
    • Timestamp
  • Connect points to topics
  • Manage and propagate "Not connected" Quality so that MQTT clients know how to interpret the data received

This power is further extended with the Sparkplug B support and ability to add security not found in MQTT including Sparkplug B.
