Amazon Web Services IoT Gateway Interface

Moving data from your local or remote IIoT data sources to (or from) Amazon Web Services IoT Gateway

Product Overview

Moving data from your local or remote data sources to (or from) Amazon Web Services IoT platform?
This is the product.

It doesn’t matter what the data source – with Open Automation Software you can move it to AWS IoT devices.

Data transfer is secure, accurate and fast. Data quality is verified via timestamp using MQTT TLS. Take live local, remote or plant floor data and easily use it in big data analytics.

The Amazon Web Services IoT Gateway Interface allows you to read or write data to and from Amazon Web Services IoT devices using MQTT with TLS (Transport Layer Security). This enables you to take full advantage of any or all of the other services provided by AWS.

MQTT TLS – A highly efficient protocol for remote devices

OAS Amazon Web Services IoT Gateway Interface utilizes MQTT TLS,  a lightweight protocol that implements a client/broker architecture. Originally developed as a machine to machine (M2M) protocol by IBM MQTT is now implemented in several open protocols.

Due to its client/server architecture and its small footprint MQTT is well suited for small devices with limited power or network connectivity. A common application is to use this protocol on hundreds or thousands of remote devices that may have battery or solar power and be utilizing cellular or other limited or expensive communications.

Advantages of MQTT TLS

  • Small packet size = low overall bandwidth usage
  • Great choice for limited connectivity – remote device connects to the broker when possible and publishes its updated state
  • Able to both subscribe and publish to brokers making it easy to take remote device data and View, Historize, Alarm, Trend and Notify via Web, .NET, Email, Voice and SMS.
  • Share non machine to machine (M2M) data and share it with M2M devices and clients utilizing the analytics available on AWS or other Big Data systems.
