Top 10 IoT Platforms


After learning what is the internet of things and learning about its fundamental components it’s time to choose an appropriate IoT platform. But first you should learn a bit about IoT hardware.

2IoT platform: Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT

Last year Amazon announced the AWS IoT platform at it s Re:Invent conference. Main features of AWS IoT platform are:

  • Registry for recognizing devices
  • Software Development Kit for devices
  • Device Shadows
  • Secure Device Gateway
  • Rules engine for inbound message evaluation

According to Amazon, their IoT platform will make it a lot easier for developers to connect sensors for multiple applications ranging from automobiles to turbines to smart home light bulbs.

Taking the scope of AWS IoT to the next level, the vendor has partnered with hardware manufacturers like Intel, Texas Instruments, Broadcom and Qualcomm to create starter kits compatible with their platform.

    Hi Author, you have also not mentioned the Aeris IoT platform, which is the only Integrated Connectivity, application & analytic IoT Suite.

    • Thank you very much @prashantbansal for bringing Aeris IoT platform to our notice. As you can make out that this list consisted only top 10 platforms, competition was tough to decide. However we are accessing all the emerging platforms continuously and if Aeris is worth it we definitely will include in the coming Top 10 list for sure.
