Introduction to AWS IoT

There are billions of devices in homes, factories, oil wells, hospitals, cars, and thousands of other places. With the proliferation of devices, you increasingly need solutions to connect them, and collect, store, and analyze device data. AWS IoT provides broad and deep functionality, spanning the edge to the cloud, so you can build IoT solutions for virtually any use case across a wide range of devices. Since AWS IoT integrates with AI services, you can make devices smarter, even without Internet connectivity. Built on the AWS cloud, used by millions of customers in 190 countries, AWS IoT can easily scale as your device fleet grows and your business requirements evolve. AWS IoT also offers the most comprehensive security features so you can create preventative security policies and respond immediately to potential security issues.

Broad and Deep:

AWS has broad and deep IoT services, from the edge to the cloud. Device software, Amazon FreeRTOS and AWS IoT Greengrass, provides local data collection and analysis. In the cloud, AWS IoT is the only vendor to bring together data management and rich analytics in easy to use services designed specifically for noisy IoT data.

Multi-Layered Security:

AWS IoT offers services for all layers of security. AWS IoT includes preventative security mechanisms, such as encryption and access control to device data. AWS IoT also offers a service to continuously monitor and audit security configurations. You receive alerts so you can mitigate potential issues, such as pushing a security fix to a device.

Superior Integration with AI:

AWS is bringing AI and IoT together to make devices more intelligent. You can create models in the cloud, and then deploy them to devices where they run 2x faster compared to other offerings. AWS IoT sends data back to the cloud for continuous improvement of models. AWS IoT also supports more machine learning frameworks compared to other offerings.

Proven at Scale:

AWS IoT is built on a scalable, secure, and proven cloud infrastructure, and scales to billions of different devices and trillions of messages. AWS IoT integrates with services such as AWS Lambda, Amazon S3, and Amazon SageMaker, so you can build complete solutions, such as an application that uses AWS IoT to manage cameras and Amazon Kinesis for machine learning.


AWS IoT customers are building industrial IoT applications for predictive quality and maintenance and to remotely monitor operations.

Connected Home:

AWS IoT customers are building connected home applications for home automation, home security and monitoring, and home networking.


AWS IoT customers are building commercial applications for traffic monitoring, public safety, and health monitoring.

The above is a brief about AWS IoT. Watch this space for more updates on the latest trends in Technology.
