IoT Connectivity

Before firmware is developed to communicate to the cloud, implement a secure, scalable connectivity platform to support the long-term growth of your devices over time. Based on the anticipated volume of devices, an IoT platform must be able to scale the communication workflows between devices and the cloud, whether that is simple ingestion of telemetry or command and response communication between devices.

You can build your IoT application using AWS services such as Amazon EC2, but you take on the undifferentiated heavy lifting for building unique value into your IoT offering. Therefore, AWS recommends that you use AWS IoT Core for your IoT platform.

AWS IoT Core supports HTTP, WebSockets, and MQTT, a lightweight communication protocol designed to tolerate intermittent connections, minimize the code footprint on devices, and reduce network bandwidth requirements.
