Latest news about the Cogent DataHub®

Major new release of Cogent DataHub v9.0 enables Industrial IoT by adding MQTT Client, Broker and more.


January 2, 2019 - Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc., a global leader in real-time cloud information systems, announces that Cogent Real-Time Systems, a Skkynet subsidiary, has issued a major new release of its Cogent DataHub® software which is now IoT enabled.  Directly connect your operations data to popular IoT services or create your own hybrid solution for added security and flexibility. Choose from any of:


With Version 9 we have added support for MQTT. Not only are we providing MQTT client capabilities,

Skkynet is the first to provide an industrial class MQTT broker. With the MQTT broker support, customers can now aggregate data from MQTT sensors or other data sources and integrate that data into their existing systems using standard protocols like OPC, Modbus, ODBC, and DDE.


For our MQTT Client capabilities, we have looked at the tools currently available and we have developed what our beta users say is the easiest tool to use. With our smart configurator for Azure IoT Hub, AWS and Google, the DataHub is the easiest and fastest way to configure and connect industrial data to the cloud – for both publish & subscribe.


With the DataHub IoT solutions customers can;


  • Utilize edge processing to filter their data and reduce cloud processing fees
  • Send their data to Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), device clouds, and Big Data analytics platforms.
  • Easily create a secure, robust hybrid cloud that isolates the devices inside their plant, protecting them from attack or Internet disruptions, while at the same time making the data available in any supported cloud service.


Secure Remote Configurator Tool

Included in the Core component of every DataHub license pack, customers will now be able to configure the DataHub remotely and when it is as running as a Windows service. With this feature, a customer can configure a network of DataHub installations from a single location. In addition, we have added security around remote access, so you can control who is authorized to configure the remote DataHub, and what options they can configure.


DataHub is now a 64bit application

DataHub version 8 and earlier are 32‐bit applications and are limited to about 1.5 GB of memory. DataHub version 9 can now use the full memory of the computer to increase point counts and scalability.


IP Camera support

We have added support for IP cameras. Customers that currently license our Camera support will now notice they can connect to an IP camera, as easily as they did with USB cameras.


Enhanced WebView

As many of you know, WebView uses Silverlight, which will be end of life October 2021. With our latest version, we have included a desktop version for those customers that do not want to use Silverlight.  Silverlight has not been removed and will continue to be available.
