AWS IoT Core

Easily and securely connect devices to the cloud. Reliably scale to billions of devices and trillions of messages.

What is AWS IoT Core?

AWS IoT Core is a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely. With AWS IoT, your applications can keep track of and communicate with all your devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected.

AWS IoT makes it easy to use AWS services like Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon CloudWatch, and AWS CloudTrail, to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyze and act on data generated by connected devices, without having to manage any infrastructure.

How does AWS IoT Core work?

Connect and manage your devices

AWS IoT allows you to easily connect devices to the cloud and to other devices. AWS IoT supports HTTP, WebSockets, and MQTT, a lightweight communication protocol specifically designed to tolerate intermittent connections, minimize the code footprint on devices, and reduce network bandwidth requirements. AWS IoT also supports other industry-standard and custom protocols, and devices can communicate with each other even if they are using different protocols.

Secure device connections and data

AWS IoT provides authentication and end-to-end encryption throughout all points of connection, so that data is never exchanged between devices and AWS IoT without proven identity. In addition, you can secure access to your devices and applications by applying policies with granular permissions.

Process and act upon device data

With AWS IoT, you can filter, transform, and act upon device data on the fly, based on business rules you define. You can update your rules to implement new device and application features at any time. AWS IoT makes it easy to use AWS services like Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon CloudWatch for even more powerful IoT applications.

Read and set device state at any time

AWS IoT stores the latest state of a device so that it can be read or set at anytime, making the device appear to your applications as if it were online all the time. This means that your application can read a device’s state even when it is disconnected, and also allows you to set a device state and have it implemented when the device reconnects.
