Connect a Kafka event stream to PubSub+ Event Broker to route a filtered set of information to a cloud analytics engine. PubSub+ Event Broker keeps bandwidth and consumption low by using fine-grained filtering to deliver exactly and only the events required.
PubSub+ Event Broker supports MQTT connectivity at massive scale, enabling reliable, secure and real-time communications with tens of millions of devices or vehicles so you can stream data to Kafka for aggregation or analytics. And PubSub+ Event Broker supports a variety of popular and open standard protocols and APIs, so you can stream events to Kafka from all your applications, running in all kinds of cloud and on-premises environments.
In addition to supporting the inbound aggregation of events from millions of connected devices, PubSub+ supports bi-directional messaging and the unique addressing of millions of devices through fine-grained filtering. For example, with Solace and Kafka working together you could send a tornado warning alert to a specific vehicle, or all vehicles in or approaching the affected area. The Sink Connector allows PubSub+ to send record events placed in a single Kafka topic to whatever vehicles satisfy a given condition or topic, whether that’s as general as being in the tri-county area or as specific as a single vehicle.
