Mainflux- MFX-1 IoT EdgeX Gateway is implemented on Solid Run HummingBoard-Edge hardware platform. It was developed to meet the B2B market demand for a high performance and includes a whole new set of features:
The architecture supports communications “north, south, east and west” as needed in the IoT
“fog” and can be deployed on a variety of edge nodes in a tiered computing architecture.
The deployment of combinations of different plug-and-play microservices simply depends
on the use cases and capability of the host device.

The combination of Mainflux’s IoT platform and its MFX-1 EdgeX Gateway will provide
an open source full-featured systemfor IoT solutions development.
The turn-key system is designed for scale, performance, operational efficiency and the ability
to create intelligent products and value-added services across the range of industries.
For the full functionality, special middleware connectors are created both on
the IoT Platform and IoT Edge Gateway side and additional original application
with user-interface for the control and management of the whole IIoT System.
IoT Platform is a remote control of the IoT Edge Gateway, management, storage, advanced analytics
and learning, acting as meta-instance of more immediate processing data needs.
