IoT Edge Connect

IoT Edge Connect provides a real-time communication and data processing protocol to Akamai connected devices. It uses the message queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) and HTTP protocols to ingest messages and to process and deliver data back to devices in real time, on a publish-subscribe basis.

The MQTT-based mechanism reads from and writes to message queues. Connecting through this interface, delivers messages in topics automatically.

The HTTP interface provides an HTTP-based mechanism for reading from and writing to the same message queues that are processed by the MQTT interface. Connecting through the HTTP interface delivers messages in topics on client request via a REST API.
