Introducing new MQTTv5 features for AWS IoT Core to help build flexible architecture patterns

Introduction We are excited to announce that AWS IoT Core now supports MQTTv5 features that help enhance communications of large-scale device deployments and innovate device messaging patterns. Customers who already have MQTTv3.1.1 deployments can make use of the new MQTTv5 features as AWS IoT Core provides seamless integration between both versions and supports heterogeneous deployments […]

Connect to remote devices using AWS IoT Secure Tunneling

Introduction When devices are deployed behind restricted firewalls at remote sites, you need a way to gain access to those devices for troubleshooting, configuration updates, and other operational tasks. This is where, secure tunneling, a feature of AWS IoT Device Management has been helping customers to do remote tasks. To help elevate customers even further, AWS has […]

Impacting Food Waste & Foodborne Illness with AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN Cold-Chain Sensors

In that sense, ConnectedFresh’s IoT solutions provide the ability to continuously monitor food temperatures throughout production, processing, transportation, and retailing. This blog will highlight […]

Implementing time-critical cloud-to-device IoT message patterns on AWS IoT Core

Introduction Widely adopted Internet of Things (IoT) communication standards for device-to-cloud and cloud-to-device are typically asynchronous, enabling event-driven patterns to ensure resilience, cost savings, and failure tolerance. However, customers across industries need to enable synchronous communication patterns to ensure time-critical logic in their edge devices. Automotive manufacturers, for example, want their connected vehicles to be […]

Planning a Seamless Migration to AWS IoT Core

Introduction The Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem has evolved rapidly over the last several years with an explosion of connected devices and data. This has also resulted in a shift for some customers as they look to evolve and adapt their solutions to match their business needs, or simply transition away from less scalable and […]

Connected vehicles telemetry – Processing Protobuf messages with AWS IoT Core

Introduction In connect vehicles applications, telemetry data is usually very extensive, containing structure and unstructured data. To send data over to the Cloud you can use Protocol Buffers (Protobuf – binary format). Protobuf provides the application with an efficient yet well structured compressing mechanism. The built-in protocol documentation makes data serialization and deserialization more manageable […]

Build resilient IoT device applications that remain active using the AWS IoT Device SDKs

Introduction In this blog post, we provide recommendations on how you can build resilient Internet of Things (IoT) device applications using AWS IoT Core, AWS IoT Device SDKs, and MQTT protocol. These recommendations cover: managing your MQTT client, publishing and reception of messages, initiating the device application process, setting up the network connection, performing software […]

Simplify multi-account device provisioning and certificate authority registration when using AWS IoT Core

Customers often manage multiple AWS accounts to separate their development, staging, and production environments. When deploying IoT workloads on AWS IoT Core, customers usually use unique X.509 certificates for identifying devices and certificate authorities (CAs) for validating the signature of device certificates during provisioning. In this blog, we will demonstrate how to use the newly […]
