For the supported devices and sensors, some settings need to be set as part of the device’s configuration, typically setting values for:
- FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of Platform Connect’s receiver cluster.
- Port number (varies per device protocol)
- Protocol Type (varies per device protocol)
Once the device/sensor is added to Platform Connect with a unique identifier, Platform Connect will accept, process, and store messages and data from the device.
Data can then be accessed via the platform’s API or through the Connect web administration portal.
