Nordic Semiconductor cloud services and the nRF Cloud online portal form an IoT Platform optimized for Nordic Semiconductor's wireless devices. It provides cloud connectivity and services for both prototype and commercial devices using Nordic Semiconductor silicon.
The platform is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a collection of integrated microservices. These offer you and your devices three ways to interact: a web portal, a REST API, and an MQTT API. You can also combine these depending on your use case.
nRF Cloud supports a variety of device types and is suitable for a range of users: hobbyists, hardware or firmware engineers building a new product with Nordic Semiconductor silicon, or web or mobile application developers using the nRF Cloud REST API to build a custom user interface for an IoT solution.
nRF Cloud is free for non-commercial use within monthly free tier limits:
- 10 devices
- 500 Location Services requests across all devices
- 50 firmware over-the-air (FOTA) device updates across all devices
- 3000 messages across all devices
When a limit is reached, further usage beyond the limit is denied. All limits reset on the first day of every month.
If you would like to use nRF Cloud beyond the free tier limits or for commercial purposes, contact Nordic Semiconductor Sales. Account owners who represent an officially registered company (with a legally valid company ID) can soon upgrade to Pro and Enterprise commercial plans.
