MAINFLUX - IIoT SYSTEM

The combination of Mainflux’s IoT platform and its MFX-1 EdgeX Gateway will provide
an open source full-featured system for 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.

MAINFLUX LABS CONTRIBUTION TO LINUX FOUNDATION
EDGEX FOUNDRY PROJECT

Due to the leading edge design of the Mainflux open-source IoT Cloud platform, Linux Foundation invited Mainflux Labs
in 2017 to participate as a member of its EdgeX Foundry Project and later LF Edge organization with companies
including AT&T, Dell, Baidu, HP, Ericsson, Huawei, NOKIA, Red Hat, Samsung, Intel and IBM.

Considering our contribution to the EdgeX, Mainflux Labs received two awards from the community of 80 companies:
Contribution Award for Exemplary Leadership and Innovation Award for Extensive Technical Contribution

LINUX FOUNDATION EDGEX FOUNDRY
