Intelligent Could Connect Demo - Easy cloud onboarding for global IoT deployments

Showcase, December 8, 2021 - 2:54am, 1492 views

In this article we will demonstrate how easily the Intelligent Cloud Connect solution can help our customers to onboard IoT devices with AWS subscription/connectivity.

For detail of Intelligent Could Connect solution, Please refer to our portal as below:

IoT deployments simplified (cloud onboarding for LTE Terminals) (thalesgroup.com)

In the demo we will use Intelligent Cloud Connect LTE Terminal (PLS62T-W with Eseye subscription) to retrieve data from an environmental sensor BME280, and we will also utilize AWS IOT SiteWise to visualize our sensor data in real time.

The AWS certificate provisioning are all done in the background, no configuration from UE side at all.

 

Device setup as below:

More detail about this sensor:

BME280 Environmental Sensor, Temperature, Humidity, Barometric Pressure (waveshare.com)

The Java Application talks to sensor via I2C interface, also takes push button signal as input via GPIO11 to start/stop sensor data collection. Once enabled it publishes data to AWS IoT via Eseye MQTT commands every 5s.

This is indeed an easy cloud onboarding system. I'm also using it successfully in a monitoring system.

An additional question I have is if there is a standard procedure / template for an aws iot job to remotely reboot the system and re-open a set of topics (or reference job)?

System-rebooting is a hardware specific operation, i don't think there is any template you can get from AWS. But it can be easily implemented from Terminal side by monitoring certain topic and triggering the reboot accordingly.
