MindSphere

MindSphere is a cloud-based platform as a service (PaaS) operating system (OS) for IoT devices in industrial and manufacturing sectors used to collect data from sensors in real time. MindSphere is created and owned by Siemens.

deviceWISE's MindSphere extension allows you to establish a secure connection with MindSphere using Siemens MindConnect Library core asset. You will be able to connect any devices through the deviceWISE core to the MindSphere. The Mindsphere is used by a gateway to exchange information (data and commands) with the Siemens IoT Operating System.
