Product Architecture

Function Description


Modules that transmit messages between IoT devices and IoT platform support multiple communication protocols including TCP, UDP, MQTT, CoAP, and LWM2M. Customers can configure self-defined plug-ins that comply with the protocols on the gateway. Then, message conversion between IoT devices and the IoT platform can be implemented, and IoT devices can quickly access the IoT platform.

IoT Agent

Serialized IoT Agents (such as Agent Rich, Agent Lite, Agent Tiny, and Agent IPC) are deployed on different types of gateways and IoT devices. Multi-vendor devices can be quickly integrated with the cloud platform.

Agents pre-integrated with near-field communication protocols such as Z-Wave, ZigBee, and Wi-Fi are used to manage data links.

Device Management

Bidirectional data channels between devices and the IoT platform are used for device data reporting and remote control.

The full-lifecycle management functions, such as getting devices online, maintenance, network connections, alarms, report analysis, upgrade, and deregistration, are available.

Rule Engine

Simplified and flexible rules enable linkage and triggering of messages, notifications, and alarms between devices.

IoT Data Analysis

The IoT platform processes concurrent real-time data, stores mass data, computes data, and exposes data APIs.

Service Operation & Management Portal

Huawei provides an all inclusive IoT enterprise operation portal for tenants. The portal consists of the following modules: application management, device management, reports management, rule engine, software management, sub-account management, and service status statistics.

API Gateway

Huawei exposes over 170 types of functions, such as device management, rule engine, and data analysis, helping developers quickly create new applications.
