Speaking of NVIDIA, Microsoft Developer takes a look at the latest device in the NVIDIA Jetson line of GPU-accelerated IoT devices, the Jetson Xavier NX.

A device which brings supercomputer-class performance to Edge applications in an ultra-compact form-factor.

To demonstrate this, we configure the device with Azure IoT Edge and deploy the NVIDIA DeepStream SDK Module from the Azure Marketplace to produce object detection telemetry with Azure Stream Analytics then push those results into Time Series Insights and Power BI.

Come see how the pairing of NVIDIA devices and Azure IoT Services make for a first-class solution of AI at the Edge!

The powerful combination of NetCloud Edge Connector ( and Microsoft Azure IoT Central enables customers to easily and confidently deploy IoT applications to drive business outcomes.

Optimizing operational efficiency, increasing customer satisfaction, and reducing CAPEX/OPEX for deployments are example benefits this solution can deliver.

NetCloud Edge Connector enables reliable and secure orchestration of IoT sensor data from Cradlepoint LTE edge routers to Microsoft Azure IoT Central. Now, Cradlepoint or Microsoft partners can easily build, deploy, and securely host IoT applications at scale for their customers driving IT/OT convergence.
