What is AWS IoT Core?

AWS IoT Core is a managed cloud service that lets connected devices interact with cloud applications and other devices. It includes the Device Gateway and the Message Broker, which connect and process messages between IoT devices and the cloud. AWS IoT Core connects AWS and Amazon services like AWS Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon SageMaker, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon QuickSight, and Alexa Voice Service to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyze and act on data generated by connected devices, without having to manage any infrastructure. The AWS IoT Device and Mobile SDKs include open-source libraries, developer guides with samples, and porting guides so that users can build innovative IoT products or solutions on your choice of hardware platforms.

End-to-end encryption is an amazing feature because we use IoT to connect to various devices in order to gather data/ stats in real-time. We're able to publish solutions with ease and at a faster rate because of AWS IoT Core. However, its inability to interact with other IoT tools is a big con that I would like them to improve upon.

AWS iot core is very useful if you need to scale very quickly for managing lots of devices without handling the underlying infrastructure cost. It can enable real time publishing and subscription of devices, monitoring and early stage intervention in case of unexpected issues while developing a full stack solution. However, healthcare scenarios where government intervention is needed should be developed and scaled by following the set of compliance policies of the government and the SLA requirements of the customer. Finally, it is great where you need to do data science research after anonymizing data.

As described earlier, AWS IoT Core was adopted for our customer who runs manufacturing floors across locations. They aimed to connect all their machines, devices, and systems into one network and thus achieve better cost and high productivity. AWS IoT core is strong in providing the capability to do just that, plus it is also natively built within the AWS environment, it can be easily connected to multiple downstream analyses enabled by AI/ML.

If your app is in the AWS ecosystem and you are using queuing service, then AWS IoT Core is your go-to solution. It is very easy to set up complexity wise and when you are new to the cloud you get a lot of things pre-build or pre-setup done.

AWS IoT is best suited for all scenarios where MQTT connection needs to be established as it provides protections for subscribing to a topic or publishing messages with specific scope and context. AWS IoT core met our business expectations for the implementation smart lock mechanism.
Not sure about scenarios where it is less appropriate, As of now not face any such scenarios.

AWS IoT core is well suited in usecases where huge amount of data is to be collected and processed without managing the servers internally. It should be adopted by clients dealing with consumer durables, safety products to learn and enhance the products based on customer usage.
Mostly suitable in auto sector to analyse driver behavior and develop products to alarm drivers.

AWS IoT Core provides a good solution for IoT services required for IoT application development and for IoT startup companies. It is very flexible which means it supports almost any type of IoT device which then can be configured to your customer needs. The speed, access, and ease of use are awesome. While there was and is some change management required to make this leap, it is worth it. It might not be a best option for low-end IoT devices.

FreeRTOS (real-time kernel operating system for embedded devices) is a handy feature. If you care about that you should consider using this product. If you are on a tight budget I would recommend at least having a very clear understanding of the pricing structure before proceeding with this product as the cost structure is not the simplest or clearest and you may end up inadvertently incurring more costs than you initially intended to. This is generally the case with AWS offerings - IoT is no exception

AWS IoT Core is the perfect solution for customers using Amazon Web Services as their main cloud platform. It is very flexible which means it supports almost any type of IoT device which then can be configured to your customer needs. It might not be a best option for low-end IoT devices.

AWS IoT Core provides a good solution for IoT services required for IoT application development and for IoT startup companies. AWS IoT platform provides special packages for IoT startups, helps them in lowering costs, and caters to all their educational and training needs. AWS IoT platform is integrated with powerful AI and ML analytics so IoT startups can focus more on device development and less on backend solutions. I don't see any scenario where the IoT Core would be less appropriate.

AWS IoT Core is well suited when connecting devices to AWS Services and other devices. It is less appropriate to use AWS IoT when resolving problems among our clients or coding data servers to hold our clients' abundant data and information.

We were satisfied with the outcome. Using AWS IoT Core, we can now get production data to analysts in just a few minutes instead of a few days (via the manual process).
