Cisco IoT makes digital transformation a reality in factories, transportation, and utilities. Learn how to start integrating with Cisco DevNet.

Yesterday, Amazon announced its much-anticipated IoT platform at re:Invent.

Amazon describes its platform as a managed cloud platform that “lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices.” It will be able to support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and will keep track of and communicate with all your devices, all the time.

You’ll be able to use existing AWS services such as AWS Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon Machine Learning, and Amazon DynamoDB to build robust IoT apps that can gather, process, analyze, and act on data generated by connected devices, without having to manage the infrastructure.

The AWS IoT will support HTTP and MQTT, as well as other industry-standard and custom protocols. It will provide authentication and end-to-end encryption throughout all points of connection, so that data is never exchanged between devices without proof of identity.

With all of the integration with existing Amazon services, you’ll be able to learn from all of that gathered data in real time.

Check out more information about AWS IoT, which is launching in beta, here.

Cisco is a software company. Surprised? Don’t be. Join DevNet to explore APIs, tools, and techniques that developers are using to add collaboration, IoT, security, network priority, and more!
