Connhex Edge

A pool of services running on your Linux devices that takes care of everything involved in exchanging data between the field and the cloud.

A better way to write firmware

Split your device firmware into separate services and never look back. This allows you to integrate Connhex Edge as much as you need - from only using its communication capabilities to leveraging its most advanced functionalities through addons.

Creating a complete application simply becomes writing your own custom services: Connhex Edge takes care of everything else.

Plug and play integration with Connhex

Connhex Edge is perfectly integrated with Connhex. Just start those two up and they'll start talking to each other without missing a beat - or a bit, that is.

And yes, the connection is automatically encrypted and secured through certificates using MQTTs and HTTPs.

Cut down time to market

Drastically reduce time to market for your new products by developing functionalities on top of an industrial-grade backbone.

We already took care of all the common features an IoT product should have - you can concentrate on what makes your application unique.

A few examples? Your devices will automatically download their configuration files remotely: no need to flash those while manufacturing the device. Every message sent from your devices will be automatically compressed to reduce data transfer rates. Thanks to the integration with Connhex Control, you'll be able to limit the communication of any device by revoking its certificates. And so on.

Addons

Enhance your edge devices without writing a single line of code.

Addons are small software packages that you can add to Connhex Edge. Each addon implements one common IIoT functionality and has been extensively optimized. The reasoning behind it? As usual, we pour lots of effort over developing common features so you don't have to.

Addons are not bundled with the Connhex Edge executable by default: this way, you can minimize memory footprint on the device by adding only the ones you need. And it's really easy too: just a click from Connhex Control and you're ready to go!

A tunnel to the edge

A fully-fledged terminal emulator connected to your edges. Connhex Edge allows us to mimick an SSH connection through MQTT. The result? Out-of-the-box complete access to your devices on the field.

You just need your device to be powered on and connected to the network to be able to access it. And the tunnel is completely independent from the custom firmware on the edge: this is perfect for recovering devices when something goes wrong!
