How to reduce latency with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams – Part 2

In this, part 2 on how to reduce latency in media managed by Amazon Kinesis Video Streams (KVS) I describe the techniques in which to configure KVS, the media producer and the media player for optimal latency settings. Then, I introduce the Amazon Kinesis Video Stream Web Viewer and perform a number of experiments on […]

How to reduce latency with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams – Part 1

In this two part series I describe how to reduce latency of streaming media managed by Amazon Kinesis Video Streams and how less than 2-second latency can be delivered with robust video quality across a variety of network conditions. Then, I provide a practical demonstration showing that with the Amazon Kinesis Video Stream Web Viewer, […]

Integrating AWS IoT SiteWise and Fleet Hub with IAM Identity Center and Okta

Introduction Many organizations are using an external identity provider to manage user identities. With an identity provider (IdP), you can manage your user identities outside of AWS and give these external user identities permissions to use AWS resources in your AWS accounts. External identity providers (IdP), such as Okta Universal Directory, can integrate with AWS […]

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 […]

Greengrass V1 Overall Solution

How to securely connect an AWS IoT Greengrass v1 device to AWS IoT Core using AWS PrivateLink

Introduction Competitive environments generally result in bottom line pressure for manufacturers, driving leadership to explore additional innovations for revenue growth such as implementation of Industrial Internet of Things(IIoT) solutions. In this post, we discuss how to secure network traffic between a device running AWS IoT Greengrass on your Operational Technology (OT) network and your Internet […]

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 […]

Connecting with mobile BLE to AWS IoT Core using FreeRTOS and Nordic nRF52840-DK

As an IoT solution architect, customers often ask me how they can connect to AWS IoT Core (cloud) using a microcontroller unit (MCU). One solution is to use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) as the connection from the MCU to a mobile device; from there, the mobile device connects to the cloud. BLE works for consumer […]

This image shows what happens when you Click over to the History tab in the AWS IoT Device Defender console. You can see all the alarm events that occurred over the past 24 hours (you can select additional options from drop down to display up to 30 days. The green line represents alarms cleared and red indicates devices still in alarm. Hovering over the lines and dots, you can see the date, time, and status of the alarms during this timestamp.

AWS IoT Device Defender Announces ML Detect GA

Today, AWS announced the general availability of AWS IoT Device Defender Machine Learning Detect and Mitigation (ML Detect), a new feature that automatically detects IoT device-level operational and security anomalies based on learnings from past device data. Customers can already use AWS IoT Device Defender’s Rules Detect feature to manually set static alarms. ML Detect […]

Integrate open source InfluxDB and Grafana with AWS IoT to visualize time series data

Across numerous types of implementations, a large portion of IoT applications collect large volumes of telemetry data. From industrial use cases to healthcare, and from consumer goods to logistics, IoT telemetry data points are highly time-dependent. In most IoT solutions, when the data is collected and reported matters for several reasons. For instance, in attribution […]

Converting industrial protocols with AWS IoT Greengrass

Gaining access to sensor data or telemetry of industrial machines is a key requirement for implementing high-value use cases around smart manufacturing or Industry 4.0. For instance, predictive maintenance or automated quality control is not possible without having such data at a high temporal resolution. Given the heterogeneous environment of modern industrial production lines with […]
