Skkynet Releases Enhanced DataHub®

DataHub® real-time middleware now supports connections to popular real-time data historians, alarms and notifications, and MQTT Sparkplug B

Mississauga, Ontario, January 11, 2022Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc. (“Skkynet”) (OTCQB: SKKY) is pleased to announce the release of a major new version of DataHub® middleware.  With powerful new enhancements, DataHub middleware for secure, real-time industrial data communications now connects to popular industrial data historians from AVEVA, InfluxData, and OSIsoft.  This innovative release is also able to generate alarms and notifications, and can handle thousands of MQTT connections, including MQTT Sparkplug B.

“This latest release of DataHub is redefining industrial IoT,” said Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet. “Users can now collect historical and alarm data directly from in-plant systems and securely pass it over the Internet to central offices and the cloud.”

Industrial data from virtually any source: pipelines, wind farms, factories, chemical plants, assembly lines, water treatment facilities, and more can be consolidated and then transmitted securely and in real time to corporate analytical systems and data lakes to power AI engines, synchronize digital twin implementations, and feed KPI calculations.

Security is based on Skkynet’s patented technology that uses outbound-only connections to ensure that no attack surface is exposed on a local plant network. It requires no IT policy changes, no open inbound firewall ports, no VPNs, and no extra hardware―while allowing real-time bi-directional data flow through DMZs and network proxies up to the cloud.

The new release also provides enhanced, patent-pending support for MQTT, strengthening IoT communications by allowing users to integrate multiple connections and providing them with more reliable verification of data delivery and status of connected devices.  Additional new features include the ability to generate alarms and notifications from process data as it flows through the system, and to send them via email, text messages, and social media.

Skkynet’s products and services—DataHub software for in-plant, Skkynet DataHub service for Microsoft Azure, SkkyHub cloud service, and ETK for embedded devices—provide secure access to industrial data through open, standard industrial protocols, allowing users to fully integrate OT with IT systems and other applications anywhere in the world. Secure by design, Skkynet’s solution requires no VPN, no open firewall ports, no special programming, and no additional hardware. Secure integration of embedded devices, on-premise systems, and remote locations through seamless, end-to-end connectivity in real time lets users derive maximum value from Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0.

Adding Security and Flexibility to MQTT

The Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) recently published a case study titled Adding Security and Flexibility to MQTT in which an implementation of MQTT was made more secure, and at the same time more flexible, using Skkynet’s DataHub technology.

In a large wood processing plant in North America, managers had planned a data collection and integration system to cut production costs, improve output and enhance network security. However, their chosen protocol, MQTT, did not provide sufficient security and flexibility. The project depended on connecting multiple MQTT inputs to a single MQTT broker in the cloud, while also allowing plant personnel to consolidate, log, and analyze the data along the way. And they had to keep the production system secure behind a DMZ.

No conventional MQTT broker could do all that. Bit they found that DataHub software, with its MQTT Smart Broker, logging, tunnelling, and other features was well suited to the task.
