About Predix Edge Cloud Gateway

The Cloud Gateway Edge App provides functionality to publish both to Time Series as well as Event Hub from one container. It also features the ability to publish to multiple Time Series or Event Hub instances simultaneously, and it provides detailed logging among other features.

The Cloud Gateway is your single solution to get data from the Edge to the Cloud. This low footprint Edge App can subscribe to multiple topics on a MQTT Broker and forward that data to both Predix Time Series and Predix Event Hub simultaneously. The client ID field is passed directly to the MQTT client, and must be unique across all applications connecting to the same broker. For more information, refer to the Mosquitto MQTT broker documentation.

The following diagram shows a simple use case where data from multiple external data sources is forwarded to the Predix Edge Broker via Protocol Adapters and then to Time Series and Event Hub using the single Cloud Gateway.
