Creator IoT Framework


Published on

Finding a scalable open-source IoT framework that reliably and securely connects your devices to the cloud while fitting your business needs, not dictating them, turns out to be a little more challenging than it first looks.

For a business or professional service, an IoT system needs to be able to offer four things

1) Scalability
Be able to scale the solution in a manner that doesn't have operating costs/bandwidth run out of control.

2) Be secure
Operate in a secure environment that prevents the system losing date or being hi-jacked.

3) Use open-standards throughout
Be based on open-source standards to avoid proprietary lock-in and allow the business to control its own destiny, contribute, collaborate, partner or quickly and easily find help in the community, if required.

4) Manage & Inter-operate
The framework must allow that allow remote day-to-day device management and interoperability with other sensors & systems
