About this Partnership

Industrial IoT and Smart Manufacturing are important industries for HiveMQ and MQTT adoption. There is a clear need in these industries to modernize their software infrastructure to enable new factory processes like predictive maintenance, flexible manufacturing and remote asset management. MQTT and HiveMQ are receiving a lot of interest from these industries as a solution to modernize.

In IIoT, partners are key to being successful, since potential customers look for a total solution that includes hardware, software and system integration. This is why we are thrilled to announce our new partnership with INS3, which has deep experience in IIoT deployments.
