Iridium to partner with Amazon on Cloud IoT services

Iridium has announced that it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) and has been collaborating with AWS on the development of Iridium CloudConnect, a satellite Cloud-based system for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Planned for launch in 2019, this new service will make Iridium IoT services available on Amazon’s existing AWS IoT managed Cloud platform, allowing Iridium customers to take advantage of AWS IoT services.

Iridium partners will also be able to adopt AWS services due to the automated translation of the Iridium network’s proprietary protocols and industry standard IoT protocols supported by AWS IoT, to and from appropriate devices and databases.

“Iridium CloudConnect will completely change the speed at which a satellite IoT solution can be deployed and will allow existing AWS customers to keep everything the same on the back end, while opening up the opportunity to quickly expand their coverage,” said Iridium CEO Matt Desch.

“This is a major disruption for satellite IoT. Costs will drop, time to market will speed up, risk will be reduced, and AWS IoT customers that choose Iridium CloudConnect can now enjoy true global connectivity for their solutions.”{/mprestriction}
