AWS IoT is announcing a new feature for AWS IoT Core called Fleet Provisioning, which makes it easy for customers to onboard large volumes of manufactured devices, like vacuum cleaners or construction excavators, to the cloud. For many customers, particularly those manufacturing large volumes of devices like OEM’s, the process of uniquely configuring and connecting IoT devices to the cloud (e.g. bootstrapping and provisioning) remains manual and time-consuming step in their IoT implementation process.

Fleet provisioning is offered at no additional charge to customers. This new feature of IoT Core is available in beta in the US East (N Virginia) region with limited SDK (C-SDK). To see how you can automate onboarding of manufactured devices to the cloud at scale with a simple, template-based workflow, read the Fleet Provisioning documentation here. You can also view our blog post to learn more.

AWS IoT Core is a managed cloud service that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT Core 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 Core, your applications can keep track of and communicate with all your devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected.
