I want to add a sensor and gateway to a platform?
Which platform must I use? is it okay with The Things Newtwork (TTN) or should i use a specific platform?
I have sensor for temperature with Sim-card (NB-IoT)
This 'The Things Newtwork' seems to be targeted to LoRaWAN devices. But you could probably use any cloud service or the one dedicated to IoT smart devices.
BTW what Thales module do you have?
Thank you for replying me!
Like what cloud service or what do you mean by IoT smart device?
I do not understand this question between what Thales module do I have?
What was meant is that you should select your platform based on the requirements that you have in the project that you are developing. From your description I understand that you are looking for a solution to communicate your device through internet with other services, and you have an NB-IoT SIM card available. So what you are probably looking for are some cloud solutions (e.g. Azure, AWS, or any other) or something even simpler, e.g. an MQTT broker. What you need to consider before making a choice is: what exact requirements do you have? Do you need to exchange a lot of data bidirectionally, to and from the device? Do you need some management system to connect multiple devices at the same time and manage their data exchange? etc.
As for the question regarding the Thales module: what device do you use right now to get the cellular network/internet access with the NB-IoT SIM card? Is it a Thales cellular module or terminal or some other device?
Thank you for replying me. I would like to buy a IoT device (2- 3 devices) which control temperature so, can you recommend me a device? I have NB-IoT sim-kort! and I want cloud solutions to manage these devices.
You mention this thing "Do you need to exchange a lot of data bidirectionally, to and from the device?"
In this situation need bidirectionally, to and from the device or just one way? to get info. from devices (Sensor)?
We can help you here about technical issues of Thales modules but we're not experts in IoT platforms market offer. In general NB-IoT device would be just as any cellular device with data connection. So you need any IoT platform that make it possible to connect to it via the public internet. As you need to connect only 3 devices you probably could search for something free. As you write about IoT device, not Thales module, I have a feeling that you don't look for a module (which is a semi-finished product for which you need to prepare the hardware and software for your solution) you may be looking for some ready to use device that may be providing some kind of connectivity to a certain cloud or over a certain protocol like MQTT for example.
I would like to ask you about MQTT broker as you mentioned above. It is a messaging protocol but as I understand here you mean that it is cloud (Platform) to manage data. Can you explain it please?
Edit after I read about it!
There are two things
MQTT Broker as a server (cloud) to manage data BUT MQTT or MQTT Client is a messaging protocol.
Am I right?
MQTT broker is sitting in the cloud and MQTT client is working on your device. The communication with MQTT protocol can go both ways, the broker may distribute messages to the clients (a client subscribes to a certain topic to receive messages sent to this topic) and clients can send messages to the broker (it sends messages to the certain topic and if your client is subscribed to it, it receives the message). In your cloud account like Azure, AWS, or others you can implement your own logic, own applications on top of for instance MQTT or other protocols.
You are amazing. But I want to make sure if I understand everything’s right.
MQTT broker is sitting in the cloud (Do you mean the cloud here called MQTT broker or the cloud uses this protocol which called MQTT broker, to connect between the sender and receiver of messages?) (I think the last option is right but I want to make sure sir!)
MQTT client (Devise(sensor))
You mention that I can use the other protocol in the cloud so, I think that a cloud uses a protocol which called MQTT broker or I can use another protocol?
Is it right?
MQTT Broker is your server with is the central point of the network and it communicates with the clients. It can sit in the cloud or on your private server.
Clouds can provide different possibilities, MQTT broker may only be one of the options. But you need to refer to a certain cloud provider for details.
