Welcome to IoT Edge Connect


IoT Edge Connect will be decommissioned on August 31, 2024.

IoT Edge Connect provides a real-time communication and data processing protocol to ​Akamai​ connected devices. It uses the message queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) and HTTP protocols to ingest messages and to process and deliver data back to devices in real time, on a publish-subscribe basis.

The MQTT-based mechanism reads from and writes to message queues. Connecting through this interface, delivers messages in topics automatically.

The HTTP interface provides an HTTP-based mechanism for reading from the same message queues that are processed by the MQTT interface. Connecting through the HTTP interface delivers messages in topics on client request via a REST API.
