can a Node.js Socket server connect a ThingWorx

our customer need connect thingworx using TCP/IP

and i found TCPExtension guide

TCPThing looks like 1:1

but customer has many sensor or device than 1

they use BUboard to change Network(TCP/IP) to Serial(RS 485)

and socket server use Node.js

board use C socket client

we want to connect a ThingWorx without another protocol like MQTT

What should I do?

What should we prepare?

I'm thinking of using a software.

However, I hope that the information will be delivered to ThingWorks immediately at no additional cost.

Thank you.

Hello, Seonho Cha.

I found a case which asked about a similar situation; unfortunately the result indicates that  MQTT may indeed be necessary.

For some additional information you could also take a look at the post:
