FEATURES





Open source & Patent Free

Apache 2.0 license. All the benefits of open source solutions: transparency, control, community testing, support and bug fixes. No client access licenses issues. No vendor lock.




Secure

Enhanced and fine-grained security via deployment-ready Mainflux Authentication and Authorization Server with Access Control scheme based on customizable API keys and scoped JWT. Mutual TLS Authentication (mTLS) using X.509 Certificates. NGINX reverse proxy for security, load-balancing and termination of TLS and DTLS connections.




Performant

Thanks to Golang language, and microservices, it has tested performance, deployment speed, fast and robust execution, small footprint.



iot platform extensibility

Built for Extensibility

Adding new functionality for vertical solutions and applications does not require reconfiguration or modification of the core platform.



integration

Seamless Integration

Open, modularized and flexible architecture with many iot protocols and easy-to-use APIs, ensures seamless 3rd-party integration with existing enterprise systems ( (e.g., ERP, BI, CRM), databases, and analytics programs, back-end systems and/or other cloud services.




Protocol and Device Agnostic

Multi-protocol support and hardware agnostic. Connectivity for any device and any application. PUB/SUB multiprotocol messaging bridge (HTTP, MQTT, WebSocket, CoAP) based on NATS ultra-performant broker.




Scalable and Responsive

Microservice-based architecture, built using open-source technologies resulting in high-performance, scalability and fault-tolerance.




Scale down - Deployable

Deployable from multi-datacenter scale to RPi class devices.




Low Opex
