What You Need to Know About Confluent MQTT Proxy
Confluent MQTT Proxy is included with Confluent Platform to deliver a simple and efficient channel for sourcing IoT data into your streaming platform. It enables IoT devices and gateways to publish data into your Kafka cluster without requiring an independent MQTT broker. The MQTT Proxy supports the widely used MQTT 3.1.1 protocol, and uses Transport Layer Security encryption and basic authentication. And of course, it inherits the scale, reliability and performance advantages of Apache Kafka and Confluent Platform.
Stream IoT Data on Kafka
Confluent MQTT Proxy makes it easy to write data from hundreds or thousands of devices to your enterprise streaming platform. Combine your IoT data with existing enterprise streams to enable real-time actions and insights from a complete, central source of truth. Make your IoT data easily available to any applications or microservices.
Confluent MQTT Proxy takes advantage of the distributed and scalable architecture of Kafka to provide a simple, scalable solution to sourcing IoT data. It eliminates the need to deploy and manage independent MQTT Brokers.
Ensure Reliability and Performance
Confluent MQTT Proxy supports the highest level of message delivery guarantee and ensures the timely delivery of complete data sets. It provides secure and predictable service by supporting all levels of quality of service (QoS 0/1/2). It inherits the high performance, low latency advantages of Confluent Platform.
IoT devices and gateways are areas of security risk. The MQTT proxy increases security by leveraging Confluent Platform’s ability to reuse, extend and comply with your existing security practices and protocols. In addition, IoT data streamed on Confluent can be protected with automatic encryption protocols for more secure access.
