Soracom Funnel payload-only and binary options now available
Soracom Funnel is an adapter service that forwards data from a device directly to a cloud service.
By default, when Funnel forwards data, metadata such as IMSI and timestamp is added to the forwarded data, which can be helpful for many applications. However, in some use cases, you may want to disable this behavior. With this update, you can now select the
Payload only option which will suppress adding metadata and instead send the data as-is.
In addition, when using Funnel to forward binary data to AWS IoT, Funnel will encode the data in base-64 for compatibility before sending it to AWS IoT. This update also introduces a new
Send Payload as Binary option which will send binary data as-is without base-64 encoding.
To use the
Send Payload as Binary option, choose the
service, then select
Binary as the content type, enable the
Payload only option, and finally enable the
Send Payload as Binary option.
You can find additional information in the Soracom Funnel documentation.
