Introducing Enhanced Customization and Advanced Features with the akenza Expert Plan
We are excited to announce the release of the new Expert plan as the latest addition to the akenza SaaS offering.
The Expert plan shall support the most demanding IoT projects with advanced features, including enhanced customization and new integrations.
A set of advanced features for large-scale IoT rollouts
Creation of custom rules
To see a detailed demo of the custom rules functionality, check out our webinar on the topic:
Azure IoT Hub output connector
With this new output connector, it becomes possible to connect your Azure IoT Hub instance as a data destination to any Data Flow or Rule Engine of akenza.
Processing IoT data into a Microsoft Azure service has never been so easy.
SIM card management
We are extending further our connectivity management portfolio with SIM card support for all Swisscom CMP mobile accounts.
With this new functionality, users of cellular devices can now automatically synchronize their SIM-cards with the akenza asset inventory.
In addition to MQTT and HTTP protocols, the Expert plan also supports the UDP-based CoAP protocol.
With its small protocol overhead, CoAP enables efficient data transmission and is therefore particularly well suited for NB-IoT devices.
As a complement to our REST API, we now offer the possibility to use WebSockets that allows users to subscribe to a live sensor data feed, removing the need to pull the data periodically.
In addition to this, the Expert plan supports all features present in our Advanced tier:
- Support for different connectivity technologies,
- Custom Device Types,
- Rule Engine,
- Several output connectors,
- and much more.
