The Bosch IoT Suite is a comprehensive toolbox in the cloud provided as Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

This flexible IoT platform bases on open standards and open source, leveraging different Eclipse IoT projects – many initiated and actively driven by Bosch Software Innovations. The Bosch IoT Suite consists of various cloud-enabled services and software packages that enable the fast, easy, and secure development of sustainable applications in the Internet of Things. It thereby serves as the platform on which Bosch and its customers can build a broad range of solutions and projects.

The Bosch IoT Suite is available as a package of fully managed, shared services in the Bosch IoT Cloud and on Amazon Web Services. The device management capabilities of the Bosch IoT Suite (the Bosch IoT Remote Manager) are also available on other clouds such as Microsoft Azure and SAP Leonardo, and they can be installed on-premise as well.

Scope of the Bosch IoT Suite

Using the Bosch IoT Suite services, developers can quickly build, implement, and operate cloud-based and highly scalable IoT applications. The Bosch IoT Suite provides core functionality for the most common IoT scenarios:

  • reliably managing devices, machines, and gateways
  • providing secure access management
  • executing software rollout processes
  • connecting third-party systems and services
  • and analyzing data.

Connectivity

Devices can be directly connected to the cloud via the Bosch IoT Hub and the Bosch IoT Remote Manager. The Bosch IoT Suite’s connectivity layer abstracts the communication protocols of the devices. It processes both telemetry ingestion and command and control messages, and it includes security aspects like authentication and authorization as well.

Alternatively, the Bosch IoT Gateway Software supports indirect connection of devices via gateways (i.e., for data privacy reasons and many other user cases). This software is fully hardware independent and runs on Bosch gateways but also on third-party devices.

Digital twin

Bosch IoT Things enables the creation of an abstract representation of a real-world asset/device (any “thing”) in the cloud. This so-called digital twin comprises all the capabilities and aspects a physical thing provides. It works like a mirror that keeps the real and digital worlds in sync. Furthermore, the digital twin layer handles relationships between assets, e.g., through topologies.
