There are more IoT connected devices than there are humans. We are becoming more and more reliant on these devices, so ensuring IoT systems scale and provide high availability is crucial. This session provides an overview of the architecture Hughes Network Systems used to implement Hughes Active Power Edge, an IoT smart plug designed to monitor and control power to mission-critical equipment. Additional topics of discussion include MQTT, Google Cloud and SkySQL Cloud Data Service, running Xpand for distributed SQL.
