IoT Observability

Industrial Monitoring Solutions

How can we help you?

When we think of an IoT system, we particularly focus on information collectors: sensors that can continuously gather any type of information not generated by a human being. However, the success of an IoT system, i.e., what makes it useful and different, is how this information is managed: how it is stored, processed, correlated, used, and represented. This is where ToBeIT’s Industrial Monitoring Solutions and IoT Observability become key components for digital transformation.

The ability of Industrial Monitoring Solutions to provide comprehensive management of the information collected by IoT devices allows companies not only to store and process data but also to correlate and use it strategically. IoT Observability goes beyond simple data collection, offering an open, scalable, and secure platform like ToBeIT’s to enhance the deployed IoT system.

Furthermore, the extension in the use of M2M (Machine to Machine) communication protocols, along with Industrial Monitoring Solutions and the potential use of cloud storage and processing, opens a universe of possibilities previously unimaginable, mainly for IoT Observability.

Having an Observability platform for IoT systems that facilitates knowledge of the past, present, and future of the devices, as well as the relationship between their behavior, allows for the application of business intelligence. This is complemented by ToBeIT’s Industrial Monitoring Solutions, which are equipped with an advanced, flexible, versatile, and useful representation layer, becoming a must for any IoT system.

The use of the MQTT protocol

The MQTT protocol (Message Queing Telemetry Transport), created for the oil industry, remained private until 2010 and became an official standard in 2014.

MQTT is based on the TCP/IP stack as a basis for communication. Unlike other protocols, it keeps the connection open by reusing it in each communication (the sensor connects, subscribes, and publishes in a queue to which it is subscribed). The simplicity and lightness of its operation and the fact that it includes a quality-of-service mechanism have made it a widely used standard.

Moreover, the protocol includes security measures (applicable or not depending on the IoT devices) such as SSL/TLS or authentication by user/password or certificate.

ToBeIT's IoT Observability Solution

ToBeIT proposes an IoT Observability platform based on the use of the MQTT protocol.

The information transferred from the IoT devices is sent to a push messaging service in subscription mode that is ingested into ToBeIT’s platform based on Elastic acting as a datalake. Among the Internet of Things Observability platforms, we recommend this solution.

ToBeIT’s IoT Observability platform facilitates the application of machine learning models that allow for advanced observability by identifying patterns and trends of the IoT device matrix. Its architecture is based on dockerized servers on Kubernetes, which facilitates its rapid deployment and security.

The representation of the information is done with Grafana, integrated within ToBeIT’s Industrial Monitoring Solutions, an open de facto standard that allows integrating visibility information from the IoT system and other sources in the same layer.

Observability Operations Technology

ToBeIT’s Operations Technology Observability, also known as OT Observability, is a practice increasingly used by operations teams. OT Observability allows operations technology teams to monitor the performance of IT infrastructure in real time, identify issues, and take preventive measures before they become serious problems.

Operations Technology Observability enables the collection, analysis, and visualization of data from different sources, such as logs, metrics, and traces, to gain a complete view of the infrastructure and its behavior.

Effective implementation of OT Observability can help reduce downtime and improve user experience. Additionally, Operations Technology Observability allows operations teams to make informed, data-driven decisions on how to optimize system performance and apply continuous improvements.

At ToBeIT, we pride ourselves on leading the forefront in the development and implementation of Industrial Monitoring Solutions, providing businesses with the necessary tools for effective management of their IoT systems.

Our expertise in IoT and OT Observability ensures that your company can fully leverage the capabilities of your devices and systems, maximizing operational efficiency and innovation. With ToBeIT, you are equipped not only to respond to current challenges but also to anticipate future needs in Industry 4.0.
