Creating and deploying a custom AWS IoT SiteWise MQTT connector with AWS IoT Greengrass

Efficiency, uptime, and the minimizing of costs are three of the most important pillars of a successful industrial operation. Understanding the operating state of equipment, overall efficiency of a piece of equipment, or a whole production line – as well as how these affect costs and revenue across multiple sites – requires a complete view […]

Ingesting and managing data from industrial equipment with AWS IoT SiteWise

AWS IoT SiteWise is a managed service that simplifies collecting, organizing, and analyzing industrial equipment data at scale. With AWS IoT SiteWise, customers can gather data reliably from multiple facilities, structure it, and make it accessible and understandable without developing additional software. With equipment data stored in AWS IoT SiteWise, customers can assess the performance […]

How to manage IoT device certificate rotation using AWS IoT

Introduction The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming business operations and customer experiences across a variety of industries. This unlimited opportunity enables business transformation, but if not implemented correctly, it also brings security, risk, and privacy concerns, compromising your data and brand. In industrial facilities, OT (Operational Technology) environments are leveraging more IT solutions to improve […]

How to detect anomalies in device metrics and improve your security posture using AWS IoT Device Defender custom metrics

Introduction IoT applications and devices can be diverse and are used across industries such as utilities, agriculture, manufacturing, mining, and consumer electronics. With the exponential growth of IoT devices and the increasing threat landscape, it also means that IoT security needs to be accounted for and designed into the solution from the ground up. AWS […]

How to remote access devices from a web browser using secure tunneling

Using firewalls is a common way to protect and secure access to IoT devices. Yet, it’s challenging to access and manage devices deployed at remote sites, behind firewalls that block all inbound traffic. Troubleshooting devices can involve sending technicians onsite to connect to those devices. This increases the complexity and the cost of device management. […]

Strengthening Operational Insights for Industrial Assets with AWS IoT AIML Solution (part 1)

Customers that manage and maintain industrial assets strive to keep them functioning as efficiently as possible, which they can do by monitoring and analyzing the health of their assets. Plant operators measure efficiency with key performance indicators (KPIs) like overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) or mean time before failure (MTBF) and act to improve these metrics […]

How to implement zero trust IoT solutions with AWS IoT

Introduction Zero trust is often misunderstood. It’s not a product but a security model and associated set of architectural principles and patterns. One of the main challenges customers face is determining how zero-trust principles can be applied to Internet of Things (IoT) and how to get started with incorporating zero trust with Amazon Web Services […]
