IoT Channel Using Amazon Pinpoint architecture

Use the architecture diagram to build an Amazon Pinpoint project that will contain the settings, segments, and campaigns for the solution’s customer engagements. The guidance also launches an AWS Lambda function that is configured as an Amazon Pinpoint custom channel. The function publishes your targeted messages to an MQTT topic. Connected devices subscribe to the topic to receive the messages. As of the date of publication, creating custom channels with AWS Lambda is a feature that is in public beta and subject to change.
