Sprint, an Overland Park, Kansas-based leading telecommunications company, in a recent press release statement on Monday, Feb. 25th, 2019, announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has chosen the Sprint’s Curiosity Internet of Things (IoT) platform to bring in actionable intelligence to the network edge.
The announcement further said that the integration of AWS storage and IoT services with Sprint’s distributed and virtualized IoT core network will benefit enterprise customers with unique optimized traffic routing, processing, and IoT data storage offering. This combination of the AWS cloud and the Curiosity IoT native LTE core will enable enterprise customers with capabilities such as processing IoT data locally, distributing IoT applications, and forwarding data to the cloud to run analytics will deliver actionable insights to make informed decisions regarding IoT applications and machine learning use cases.
Further, the said Sprint, AWS collaboration will further enrich the Curiosity IoT with capabilities like:
- Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) offering, which will enable customers of all sizes, from small through to medium to large, to store and protect any amount of data from IoT devices, providing easy-to-use management features.
- AWS IoT Analytics offering, which aligns with the Curiosity IoT tenet of ‘turning data into intelligence,’ makes it easy for customers to run and operationalize complex analytics on massive volumes of IoT data, eliminating the worry about cost and complexity that accompanies the building of an IoT analytics platform.
- AWS IoT Things Graph offering is to further assist the Curiosity IoT in making IoT increasingly standard and accessible, by providing a visual drag-and-drop interface that facilitates connecting and coordinating of devices and web services, enabling developers to quickly build IoT applications.
