Introducing the IoT Foundation

IoT Foundation: The Essential Starter Kit for AWS IoT

Get your Connected Product to Market Faster

OST has a long history helping clients imagine, build, and run their own amazing connected products. From smart office furniture to air purifiers, we’ve supported organizations at all points of the IoT life cycle. While the recipe for a successful IoT project can vary, there are three ingredients found within all successful product launches: agility, stability, and security.

The faster an organization can bring a reliable, secure product to market, the faster it can begin to collect real data, real insights, and real revenue. To ensure these ingredients are included in every IoT product our customers are cooking up, OST built the IoT Foundation, a starter kit for building on the AWS IoT Platform.

What is the IoT Foundation?

The IoT Foundation brings all the benefits of Serverless Architecture to your connected product from the start, so you can begin creating value as fast as possible. Embedded into the IoT platform is everything we’ve learned building great IoT products. All of OST’s best practices, frameworks, and connectivity tools needed in any organization’s toolkit when building connected products, including:

  • Connectivity
  • Device Security
  • Device Onboarding
  • Fleet Management
  • User Management
  • Data Collection and Processing
  • Help Desk / Call Center Support.
