Introducing Honeycomb 3.0 – IoT API Platform

Powered by Honeycomb over 150 enterprise customers rely on our smart logistics application to monitor their shipments in transit. We are now opening up Honeycomb for developers to build other powerful IoT applications, from smart device to smart buildings, smart cities, and everything in between.

Overview

The robust, stateless, and scalable API’s empowers developers and business owners to accelerate and simply IoT adoption. The API’s provide device interoperability, IoT data management, event handling, rules development and application integration in a toolkit. It provides developers with built-in cloud deployment machinery designed to simplify, automate, and eliminate the steps associated with setting up the foundation for your application. You can get your IoT application deployed much more quickly, and iterate, adapt and extend it more rapidly over time. With composable and complete API's, our clean interfaces and abstractions can handle any IoT application needs – from device registry and message delivery to analytics and everything in between.

Platform Benefits

From whiteboard to dashboard in 6 weeks

Manage Sensor Data Efficiently

The IoT API suite offers API’s for collecting sensor data, filtering and transforming data into valuable, actionable, and reliable business information. Developers can use these API’s to collect and deliver aggregated and enriched sensor data to their IoT applications.

Ease of Integration to Enterprise Applications

IoT API suite offers standard interfaces that enable frictionless integration into existing enterprise applications like ERP, WMS, CMDB, middleware, and others.

Click-Through Cloud Deployment

With easy to use deployment and management dashboards, you can deploy your IoT application within minutes and easily scale as it grows. Our cloud comes with rapid scaling, high-performance, highly resilient infrastructure with 24x7 uptime.

IoT API Platform

For Rapid Visibility Application Development

Sensor Simulator

The IoT API platform includes a built-in simulator that lets application developers create virtual sensor devices within minutes or test IoT applications. Using the simulator, developers can rapidly create large numbers of messages with any business data to test their applications.

Data and Reporting

Keep track if sensors and its messages using our built-in reporting features. It can be exported into CSV formatted report for use in spreadsheet apps.

Common API’s for Application Integration

The common API's for application integration provide application developers the ability to integrate sensor data with any system of records such as ERP, WMS, MES, AMS, and others. Application developers can rapidly pass sensor based results to external applications.

Rules Engine

The rules engine APIs facilitate interactions between "Things" and various business processes. An important property of our rules engine is chaining – where the action part of one rule changes the state of the system in such a way that it alters the value of the condition part of other rules. For example, if it is smart logistics application, one can build a rule with the condition that – "Shipments should always be transported using highways between dawn and dusk with no unscheduled stops. The user should be notified instantly between business hours and daily digest sent of all alerts during non-business hours."

IoT Administration Console

The IoT administration console enables application developers to set-up and manages their IoT ecosystems in minutes. Using the console application developers can configure alerts, execute device commands, aggregate and filter data and publish sensor data to external applications. The console also provides developers with a real-time view of all data processed through the IoT API platform which helps in debugging and monitoring.

Common API’s for IoT Devices

The common API's that abstract IoT device functionality provides application developers with hardware interoperability and the ability to manage multiple vendor devices through a single programmatic interface.

Specific functionality provided by API’s include

• Device configuration
• Multiple communication protocols (TCP/UDP/HTTP)
• Support for native devices AT command sets
• Device authentication and diagnostics

Cloud Hosting and Scaling

Built on top of Docker containers and the Kubernetes cluster manager, the IoT API platform offers to deploy to operate tools to enable rapid application development, scaling and long-term lifecycle maintenance for applications of all sizes.

Common API’s for Data Management

These API’s provide application developers the ability to manage raw time series data, optimize sensor data by making sensor data contextual. The API's also support transformation, encoding, and decoding of data in various industry and application formats.

Webhooks

One of the most powerful capabilities a developer has with the IoT API platform is through our Webhooks. Webhooks allow your IoT device data to be sent to third party web servers offering unlimited flexibility to process, react, and control IoT devices. Data passes through micro services that contextualize data. Developers can inject or extract data at various entry points within the platform's architecture.
