How to setup and use a SpringPark as an Amazon AWS client

The aim of this demonstration is to configure a SpringPark as a Network SmartReader/AWS client. The SpringPark in this configuration acts as an AWS IOT Core client (using TLS). It sends its tags/informations to Amazon's cloud and can also receive commands.

We won't cover the AWS's side (lamba function, certificates, policies, ...) but focuse on the device's side.

For this howto, we will assume that:

  • your SpringPark is using a default (from factory) configuration.
  • you have some networking basis.
  • you have some MQTT basis.

The communication uses a custom client/server protocol, designed for reliability, security and speed.
