IIoT Continues to Expand: ClearBlade Introduces Its Latest Lion Nebula Release

The Internet of Things (IoT), along with the associated devices, has been used as a competitive edge for enterprises looking to stand out within their sectors. When leveraged correctly, organizations can gather invaluable data to improve efficiency and forecast the future. Now, amidst digital transformation and the start of a new era dominated by technology, IoT has become commonplace in enterprises of all sizes, permeating into nearly every industry.

The IoT market is booming: according to the latest research, the global IoT market size will grow from $399.41 billion in 2022 to $486.7 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.9 percent. Longer term, experts estimate a market value of $1.1 trillion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 21.4 percent from 2023 to 2027.

While IoT offers advantages regardless of sector, the technology sparked Industry 4.0 and a massive wave of adoption over the last decade and now sweeping through the manufacturing industry, where ROI has proven substantial. IIoT technology allows manufacturers to upgrade to “smart manufacturing,” which can offer benefits related to overall operating productivity, machine efficacy, security, and even employee safety.

ClearBlade, an early mover and global IoT Platform and Edge AI company, recently announced the Lion Nebula Release of its IoT software. The new platform offers new capabilities, as well as enhancements of previous capabilities for its IoT core, IoT enterprise, and IoT edge offerings.

In terms of new capabilities, the new ClearBlade IoT platform offers three main abilities. Firstly, to ensure JSON Web Tokens (JWT) are valid, ClearBlade is enforcing a ten-minute bidirectional time skew. As a result, any compromised tokens are quickly made invalid, and communication between the device and the cloud is protected.

Furthermore, new native-level integrations for Google PubSub communication allow for large-scale registries to run in highly performant modes. This feature, available to IoT enterprise customers, results in huge cloud cost savings when compared to data volume-based pricing.

On top of this, built-in logging tools for Google Cloud Monitoring and Logging for seamless IoT Core migrations. This reduces IoT solution management complexity and enables monitoring of underlying IoT Core infrastructure with native cloud tools.

Moreover, while the new ClearBlade IoT platform offers new skills, it also improves the abilities of past offerings. For example, continued improvements to make marketplace interactions more transparent and easier for end users to connect billing and monitoring. Additional improvements allow for many developers to work within shared registries while all are billed to a common account.

Additionally, improvements in the MySQL and MariaDB external database connectors allow for the latest supported driver features and TLS-encrypted communication. This ensures secure communication between multi-cloud architectures and modern capability availability.

The new platform also sees the replacement of the current MongoDB Atlas driver with the latest release to enable connectivity to the latest MongoDB releases, enabling increased performance and connection speeds.

Finally, it’s now easier to manage users who access Intelligent Assets with direct integration to Azure Active Directory. Microsoft Enterprise grade director access can now control who has access to view and edit field IoT assets.
