MachNation IoT Test Environment (MIT-E)

MachNation IoT Test Environment (MIT-E)

With over 400 IoT platforms in the market, the only way to know an IoT platform is to use it. And MachNation’s MIT-E is the only IoT platform benchmarking lab that has the experience, independence, and tooling to provide hands-on capability and usability testing. MachNation’s IoT platform testers conduct a set of 110 hands-on tests on IoT platform microservices including access control, analytics, architecture, data management, device management, edge, event processing, external integration, monitoring, and usability. These operator and developer tests benchmark the features of IoT platforms and generate almost 500 comparable metrics per platform. Industrial enterprises, systems integrators, communication services providers, and vendors rely on IoT platform benchmarking to support their M&A activities, competitive intelligence gathering, product roadmap development, and independent benchmarking exercises.

MIT-E Performance Testing (MIT-E Pf)

MIT-E Performance Testing (MIT-E Pf)

MIT-E Pf is the world’s first software built exclusively for performance and scalability testing of IoT platforms and solutions. Built by MachNation developers, MIT-E Pf verifies platform performance up to 10 million IoT devices and 1 million IoT messages per second. MachNation’s testers conduct a comprehensive series of 20 tests for data ingestion, device management, event processing, and a full-stack solution with up to 67 metrics per load tested. MIT-E Pf is Purpose-built for IoT. Our software simulates real-world IoT message flows – every message is uniquely ID’d and tracked. Scalable, cloud-native, and API-driven. MIT-E Pf matches customers’ needs while systematically orchestrating worker spin-up and spin-down. Template-driven tests. Customers can use MachNation’s pre-designed, best-in-class test templates or easily design custom tests in MIT-E Pf. Built on open data and rich analytics. MIT-E Pf delivers rich analytics reports and easily exports performance data into big data

MachNation IoT Test Environment - User Experience (MIT-E UX)

MachNation IoT Test Environment - User Experience (MIT-E UX)

MIT-E UX, MachNation’s IoT platform UX testing service, helps IoT platform vendors differentiate and market their platform and services based on the unique capabilities and usability strengths of their platform. MachNation shows these strengths by building a proof-of-concept (PoC) using the IoT platform vendor’s solution. In MIT-E UX, MachNation developers Collaboratively pick a relevant IoT proof-of-concept (PoC). The PoC should be something that a typical enterprise customer would do with a vendor’s IoT platform. It should be use case-specific and can include edge and cloud components. Identify the evaluation categories and tasks required to build the PoC. MachNation developers use the MIT-E methodology to identify the tasks and evaluation categories associated with building the PoC. Build the PoC twice. MachNation developers build the PoC twice – once using the vendor’s IoT platform and once using a competing IoT platform. Score each task and evaluation category.
