AWS to Integrate Cloud with Sprint Curiosity IoT Platform to Bring Intelligence to the Edge

By Ken Briodagh February 27, 2019

Sprint recently announced it is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to further enrich the capabilities of its Curiosity Internet of Things (IoT) platform. AWS storage and IoT services reportedly will now be integrated with Sprint's distributed and virtualized IoT core network with the goal of providing enterprise customers with more optimized traffic routing, processing, and storage of IoT data. Leveraging the AWS cloud and the Curiosity IoT native LTE core, enterprises can now process IoT data locally, distribute IoT applications, and forward data to the cloud to run analytics and get insights to make better and more accurate decisions for IoT applications and machine learning use cases.

Sprint's collaboration with AWS focuses on further enriching the capabilities of Curiosity IoT by providing customers with access to:

  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3):  Customers of all sizes and industries can use Amazon S3 with their Curiosity IoT deployment to store and protect any amount of data from IoT devices. It provides easy-to-use management features, so users can organize IoT data and configure finely-tuned access controls to meet specific business, organizational, and compliance requirements.
  • AWS IoT Analytics: Aligning with the Curiosity IoT tenet of 'turning data into intelligence,' AWS IoT Analytics makes it easy to run and operationalize sophisticated analytics on massive volumes of IoT data without having to worry about the cost and complexity typically required to build an IoT analytics platform. It is one of the easiest ways to run analytics on IoT data and get insights to make better and more accurate decisions for IoT applications and machine learning use cases.
  • AWS IoT Things Graph: Curiosity IoT also aims to make IoT increasingly standard and accessible, and the AWS IoT Things Graph service assists in this by providing a visual drag-and-drop interface for connecting and coordinating devices and web services, so developers can build IoT applications quickly. Developers can use pre-built models for popular device types, such as switches and programmable logic controllers (PLCs), or create their own custom model using a GraphQL-based schema modeling language.

Curiosity includes a native LTE core that is fully virtualized and distributed geographically. It enables edge and cloud collaboration where IoT applications can be distributed with Curiosity and be responsible for locally processing IoT data and forwarding a subset to the cloud for the long-term analytics.

“Sprint and AWS aim to make the AWS programming environment and services available to developers at Curiosity instances,” said Ivo Rook, SVP, IoT and Product Development, Sprint.

“Additionally, AWS customers and others will be able to procure Curiosity IoT connectivity and services directly on AWS Marketplace, an online store that helps customers discover, purchase, migrate and immediately start using the software and services they need to build products and run their businesses.”

“AWS IoT Core Services coupled with Sprint Curiosity IoT platform can drive actionable intelligence and business outcomes for customer IoT device data on Sprint's next generation wireless network,” said Jean-Philippe Poirault, Head of AWS Telecom, Amazon Web Services. “In addition, providing customers with the ability to purchase Sprint's cellular connectivity rate plans on AWS Marketplace enables businesses of all sizes to securely connect their IoT devices to AWS.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
