Cirrus Link has published an open-source IIoT (Industrial IoT) standard
called Sparkplug which specifies a framework for stateful data exchange
between things (sensors, actuators, gateways) and applications via the
Inductive Automation's Ignition platform with their MQTT Edge module
implements this standard to supply an industrial-strength scalable
IoT application environment. The eco-system of devices that connects
to Ignition via MQTT must support the Sparkplug state machine.
MIMIC MQTT Simulator is designed to perform large-scale development /
testing / proof-of-concept / deployment or training on IoT platforms,
including Ignition. We have applied the open source Sparkplug library
to simulated sensors in MIMIC to integrate a large number of things
This screenshot shows 10 simulated Bosch sensors publishing unique
temperature values to Ignition.
