Our Wave NB-IoT device communicates both device status as measurement data over the NB-IoT network to our IoT Gatekeeper Kafka producer. Here the Kafka topics are being attached to the messages and these are placed on the Kafka bus. Any consumer on the Kafka bus which is subscribed to this topic (and has access) is able to consume the message from the bus and process it. Click here to see how it works.
Float offers a Machine Learning consumer called ‘Kit’ on the Kafka stream to enable real-time Machine Learning analysis. This can be used for a variety of use cases: predictive maintenance, fraud detection and security threats. But also customer friendly services as an alert when an elderly has different water usage pattterns which could indicate they need to be checked.
