Internet of Things (IoT) Architectures

With existing enterprise customers leading the charge, more and more companies are choosing the AWS IoT Platform for the depth of AWS services that lie below the surface. Trek10 has deep expertise in designing, building, and supporting serverless IoT architectures on AWS. When you pair the benefits of a serverless implementation that leverages Lambda alongside other AWS managed services, which significantly reduces the overall development effort and time to deployment, with the dramatically low (and predictable) operational costs that are characteristic of serverless architectures, and you begin to understand why so many companies are selecting AWS as the foundation for their IoT initiatives.

When it comes right down to it, building an enterprise-ready backend infrastructure that can elegantly scale, in both functionality and capacity to support additional devices and future product lines, has never been easier than it is today. Learn more about how Trek10 can help you get started.

"We've already connected seven million devices and built our own platform." - Jeroen Tas, CEO, Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services, Philips



Trek10's Expertise + the AWS IoT Platform

Trek10 builds massively scalable, highly available backend infrastructures for our clients, delivering IoT solutions that can be rolled out quickly, with minimal upfront investment and incredibly low operating costs.

Trek10 has a proven track record of designing and implementing advanced IoT solutions and is one of an esteemed group of AWS Consulting Partners worldwide that have been awarded the IoT Competency by AWS. Trek10 solutions architects have amassed deep experience building event-driven solutions on AWS that leverage AWS Lambda alongside other AWS platform services such as API Gateway, DynamoDB, and S3, and thanks to the AWS IoT Platform, these services are now helping to redefine how the physical world connects with the virtual one.


The AWS IoT Platform is an extension of the largest and most robust cloud offering in the world, including features such as:

  • AWS IoT Device SDK
  • Device Gateway
  • Authentication and Authorization
  • Registry
  • Device Shadows
  • Rules Engine

The real power comes from being built on top of core AWS services:

  • Compute (EC2, AWS Lambda, AWS Greengrass)
  • Storage (S3, Glacier)
  • Data Ingestion (Amazon Kinesis)
  • Database (RDS, Redshift, DynamoDB)
  • API Management (API Gateway)
  • Environment Monitoring (CloudWatch)
  • Search & Logging Analytics (ElasticSearch)

    CloudProse Blog: Manage Your AWS Greengrass Lambda Functions with SAM
    A few tools are starting to emerge that take away some of the Greengrass deployment pain. A Cloud Guru has published AWS Greengrass: The Missing Manual and the associated greengo deployment tool, IOpipe just released a Greengrass image for the Pi called Grassbian. But all these examples call the Lambda API. That’s not how we want to deploy our Lambda functions! We want to manage our Greengrass Lambdas the same way we handle any other serverless code, using a framework like the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM).
