The key features of the Default Integration are:
- Handling uplink and downlink messages: The Things Stack publishes uplink messages to IoT Core and subscribes to downlink messages that you sent from IoT Core. Also, you receive all downlink queued, sent, failed, acknowledged and not acknowledged events in IoT Core
- Creating and claiming devices: manage things in IoT Core, or claim things securely on The Things Join Server by proving ownership
- Encrypting and decrypting message payloads: leverage true LoRaWAN end-to-end encryption by unwrapping the AppSKey from the Join Server
- Updating device state in shadow: monitor devices using useful metrics reported in the shadow state, like signal quality and number of covering gateways
This integration comes with a AWS CloudFormation template to deploy in your AWS account.
