Using a Telefonica Data Bridge to Connect Narrow Band IoT Devices to AWS IoT Core
AWS IoT Core supports billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS endpoints and other devices reliably and securely. AWS IoT Core requires X.509 certificates for authentication, but the X.509 standard consumes battery power, negating LPWAN’s advantage in that area. Telefonica developed a data bridge to enable IoT devices to connect securely to AWS IoT Core, while preserving the long range, low cost, and low power advantages of LPWAN connections.

Terraform and AWS CloudFormation allow you to express infrastructure resources as code and manage them programmatically. Each has its advantages, but some enterprises already have expertise in Terraform and prefer using it to manage their AWS resources. To accommodate that preference, CloudFormation allows you to use non-AWS resources to manage AWS infrastructure. Learn the steps to create a CloudFormation registry resource type for Terraform and deploy it as an AWS Service Catalog product.
