A package connecting and managing sensor style devices. Connecting sensors to the cloud, processing data with a digital twin platform, and managing device firmware.

In order to have a better understanding, the following diagram will give you a brief overview of the package.

Eclipse Hono provides the IoT messaging layer. It allows the devices to connect into the cluster using various IoT specific protocols (e.g. MQTT). Connections will be authenticated based on data from the device registry. Messages will be passed through the router, for volatile messages, and through the broker for persistent messages.

Eclipse Ditto will tap into the stream of messages, coming from Hono and the devices. It will pre-process it, so that applications can work with more structured data.

Eclipse Hawkbit will take care of rolling out new messages. For this it will also use the messaging layer provided by Hono.

This enables your Custom Application to easily communicate with the devices, using a structured data model, a scalable messaging layer.
