Retail giant Amazon’s intentions to make it large in IoT aren’t hidden from anyone. According to a recent report published in Fortune, Amazon Web Services, the web hosting arm of Amazon registered a few domain names to be used for its IoT business.
The news, first published by a trade blog, Domain Name Wire, stated the names that Amazon’s considering to roll out its IoT operations. Given that Amazon chose AWS Re: Invent Customer Conference to announce these names; experts think that the company is looking forward to take things to all new levels.
Before it rolls out its awaited cloud-based IoT service this week, Amazon has locked five domain names – amazoninternetofthings.com, awsinternetofthings.com, amazoniotplatform.com, awsiotservice.com and awsiotplatform.com. Although this move doesn’t signify anything as of now, it’s a clear indication that Internet of Things is a major part of Amazon’s strategy.
Reporters tried to get in touch with Amazon officials to speak more on this issue, but the company declined to comment anything.
With IoT industry is set to cover over 20 billion devices over the next four years, seems like the retail giant doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned to scale its IoT offerings.
