Reinventing the Internet of Things (IoT) Platform for Discrete Manufacturers
The term Industry 4.0 encompasses a promise of a new industrial revolution—for the industrial sector, one that marries advanced manufacturing techniques with the Internet of Things to create systems that are not only interconnected, but communicate, analyze, and use information to drive further intelligent action back in the physical world. Today is the internet moment for manufacturing, and with it comes the gold rush of providers ready to enable the industry’s digital transformation.
Creating Energy IoT Solutions Using Intel SoC FPGA Devices and AWS Services
Power utilities around the world are headed towards the most radical shift in their business since their inception nearly 150 years ago. The digitization of the grid—along with the shifting requirements of regulatory bodies—creates new challenges and opportunities for utilities around the world. Intel and AWS are committed to providing the tools, platforms, and services to make these capabilities a reality. In that context, this post introduces the concept of Energy IoT.
How to Analyze and Action Device Data Using AWS IoT and Splunk
Splunk software collects, analyzes, and visualizes real-time and historical machine data from any source, enabling you to improve operations, ensure safety and compliance, perform predictive maintenance, and better manage the uptime and availability of industrial assets. Learn how to collect data from Internet of Things (IoT) devices using AWS IoT services and ingest that data into Splunk for meaningful and action-oriented analytics using Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose.
Transforming Smart Buildings and Facilities with Cognizant Connected Places on AWS
In today’s increasingly digital world, the nature and function of buildings is constantly changing. Facility managers face increasing pressure to adapt to an ever-evolving workplace and regulatory requirements while improving customer comforts and reducing operating costs. Learn about Cognizant’s smart building solution and why this APN Premier Consulting Partner chose AWS for hosting its application, as well as how AWS helps Cognizant fulfill commitments to customers.
Integrating BICS SIM for Things with AWS IoT to Provide Secure Cellular Connectivity for IoT Solutions
The BICS SIM for Things platform is a global connectivity solution for IoT that provides a single global SIM to securely connect IoT devices all around the world. By leveraging BICS’ network connectivity information customers can achieve enhanced security and extract additional insights from their IoT fleet. Using BICS’ advanced APIs, solution architects can follow the steps in this blog to enable the integration between AWS IoT and SIM for Things.
How to Solve Tricky Embedded IoT Challenges with Insightful Analysis
Dig deeper into Amazon FreeRTOS and take a closer look at the communication stack for AWS IoT Core. Then learn how this communication can be analyzed using Percepio Tracealyzer, ensuring your system doesn’t generate unnecessary data traffic. We’ll present an example where two minor bugs sometimes coincided, causing the system to generate 10 times more data than expected, and how the cause of such issues can be identified.
Adding Secure Element Support Using AWS IoT Greengrass Hardware Security Integration (HSI)
Internet of Things (IoT) gateways enabled with AWS IoT Greengrass connect to the AWS IoT Core service. Here, we explore the AWS IoT Greengrass security framework using AWS IoT Greengrass Hardware Security Integration (HSI) and how it works with secure elements. Learn how to couple Just in Time Registration (JITR) or Just in Time Provisioning (JITP), and how to implement the secure element from APN Partner Microchip Technology leveraging AWS IoT Greengrass HSI.
Tuning Your Amazon FreeRTOS Application for Maximum Performance
By their very nature, embedded applications have to be very tightly written because the microcontrollers used in embedded designs are very resource-constrained. When companies build embedded applications that work with AWS, they look to IAR Systems to provide highly-optimized development tools. In this post, we discuss how IAR Systems provides not only the tools but the insights to help customers deliver optimized products faster leveraging Amazon FreeRTOS.
Introducing New AWS IoT Service Delivery Designations
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next phase of digital transformation, and AWS IoT Service Delivery Partners are driving this evolution. They are improving customer experiences and outcomes by choosing the best approach for the design and implementation of IoT solutions that are optimized for cost, reliability, security, performance, and scalability. At AWS re:Invent 2018, we introduced AWS IoT Service Delivery Partners in three key areas: AWS IoT Core, AWS IoT Greengrass, and AWS IoT Analytics.
Introducing the AWS Device Qualification Program
The new AWS Device Qualification Program makes it easier for APN Partners to qualify their devices on AWS IoT Greengrass, Amazon FreeRTOS, AWS IoT Core, and/or Amazon Kinesis Video Streams so that customers can find and purchase hardware they can trust for their IoT projects. With AWS IoT along with our APN Partners and their qualified hardware, customers will have the intelligence needed to build new services and business models, improve products and services, and strengthen the customer experiences.
