What is this service all about?

The Bosch IoT Hub allows you to connect devices through various protocols to IoT applications in an easy and secure manner. Using the cloud service, IoT applications are able to retrieve telemetry data from devices either with or without guaranteed delivery (device-to-cloud communication) and send command & control messages to devices (cloud-to-device communication).

Bosch IoT Hub The role of the Bosch IoT Hub within your IoT application.

Application developers are searching for an easy and simple to use solution for connecting devices to their application. As the IoT is characterized through device heterogeneity and diversity this starts with support of a wide range of IoT protocols (from HTTP over MQTT to LPWAN protocols). In addition, a way to ensure secure device connectivity - from transport layer security for the communication up to per-device authentication including management of device credentials - is an important topic in context of IoT.

The Bosch IoT Hub is a fully managed cloud service of the Bosch IoT Suite and offers all of this functionality out of the box. It provides a uniform API to your application to connect devices regardless of the IoT protocol that is used by them. The pluggable architecture allows to support even proprietary protocols via so called custom protocol adapters. Making use of the Bosch IoT Hub application developers can focus on implementing the business logic of their IoT application instead of working on device connectivity related issues.

Key Features

Key features of the Bosch IoT Hub that simplify development of IoT applications are:

  • Full support of device-to-cloud and cloud-to-device communication distinguishing between different communication patterns:
    • Telemetry for processing data generated by devices in a highly scalable manner
    • Events for guaranteed delivery of messages sent by devices to your application
    • Command & Control for changing the configuration of devices or triggering actions on devices
  • Out-of-the-box support for interacting with MQTT and HTTP enabled devices
  • Support for various LoRa network providers to communicate with LoRaWAN enabled devices
  • Management of device identities and credentials to connect devices in a secure manner
  • Per-device authentication and authorization using different authentication schemes
  • Support for gateway based scenarios to connect devices using non-IP based protocols
  • Based on open source and fully API compatible with Eclipse Hono™
  • Off-the-shelf integration with other Bosch IoT Suite services (e.g. Bosch IoT Things)

How can I make use of Bosch IoT Hub?
