Building Scalable IoT Applications with AWS IoT

With the explosion of IoT devices across the world, handling communication with those devices in a secure, scalable and globally distributed manner is becoming increasingly important. Protocols such as MQTT offer a means for communicating with these devices but managing the infrastructure required to support this communication proves to be extremely costly. Managed cloud-based solutions such as AWS IoT provide companies with an immediately available solution capable of handling communications with billions of devices.

This talk will provide an overview of the AWS IoT platform. Topics covered will include device communication, the MQTT protocol, server-side message routing, device state management, security and monitoring.
