Edge Gateway Elevates Sensor to Server IOT Security

Advanced Edge Gateway

Monnit Corporation recently announced the release of the ALTA® Advanced Edge Gateway. The new gateway aggregates data from Monnit Wireless Sensors to any cloud provider, such as Amazon AWS. Coupling the prominent MQTTS protocol and the IoT’s broadest sensor range.  Monnit’s Edge Gateway fulfills a key Server IoT Security mission of making deployments more agile and productive.

The expansive Internet of Things is inundating businesses with billions of data points, The Edge Gateway helps these businesses cope by decentralising data processing and bringing this processing closer to data-generating ‘things’. Firms will benefit from spontaneous analytics, instant action based on metrics and support for enhanced situation-based applications.

In-the-Field Authentication of IoT Data:

 The Edge Gateway features a web interface for configuring and managing Monnit Wireless Sensors, as well as designating MQTT brokers. As the Ethernet-based gateway receives sensor data, the gateway “fingerprints” the data with a cryptographic validation stamp. This authenticated data is then transmitted to a cloud broker (or multiple brokers), where it arrives in a standard format. The Edge Gateway’s integrated macros enable data configuration in virtually any format, such as JSON or XML, making it a powerful tool for data analysis and action.

 ALTA Edge Gateway  for Server IOT Security Features

  • Scalability — One gateway accommodates up to 100 wireless sensors
  • Security — Data authentication via unique cryptographic validation “fingerprint”
  • Robust processing — Linux® UBUNTU™ single-board computer with a 32-bit ARM
  • Redundancy — Data transmission to multiple cloud providers or MQTT servers, ensuring operational reliability in the event of server failure

As with all of Monnit’s US-made gateways, the new Edge Gateway supports Monnit’s line of 80+ ALTA long-range wireless sensors.
