The powerful combination of NetCloud Edge Connector (https://aka.ms/iotshow/cradlepoint) 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.

Looking for a good DIY (Do It Yourself) IoT project?

There are so many interesting things that we can do with a few components and a little creatively.

In this video, Cam Soper comes on to show us how he automated his home with .NET Core, Hubitat, and Azure with his open source project called Puppet.

    Azure Maps Weather services (https://aka.ms/iotshow/AzureMapsWeatherService) add a new layer of real-time, location-aware information to Azure Maps portfolio of native Azure geospatial services.

    Bringing Weather Services to Azure Maps means IoT developers have a simple means of integrating highly dynamic, real-time, historic and forecasted weather data and visualizations into their applications through their existing Azure subscriptions.

    The Weather Service APIs for Azure Maps are brought to life in partnership with Accuweather. Weather is a critical factor for many scenarios—whether it’s to ensure the safety of mobile assets, model and forecast need for renewable energy, or predict risk and assess claims in the insurance industry.

    Outi demonstrates how a few of these APIs can be used to enhance data visualizations with radar and infrared map overlays with an Azure Maps Web SDK, and how call APIs to make weather-based decisions with current and forecast based weather, as well as weather along route.

    Databricks recently hosted an online tech talk on Delta Lake.

    Predictive Maintenance (PdM) is different from other routine or time-based maintenance approaches as it combines various sensor readings and sophisticated analytics on thousands of logged events in near real time and promises several fold improvements in cost savings because tasks are performed only when warranted.

    The top industries leading the IoT revolution include manufacturing, transportation, utilities, healthcare, consumer electronics & cars. The global market size for this is expected to grow at a CAGR of 28%. PdM plays a key role in Industry 4.0 to help corporations not only reduce unplanned downtimes, but also improve productivity and safety.

    The collaborative Data and Analytics platform from Databricks is a great technology fit to facilitate these use cases by providing a single unified platform to ingest the sensor data, perform the necessary transformations and exploration, run ML and generate valuable insights.

    Even as threats to IoT devices increase, very few of them are being designed with security in mind. Azure Sphere introduces a trusted and secure platform to build software upon, combining the security of open source with Microsoft’s Seven Properties of Highly Secured Devices. Let’s walk through our security model and what it takes to keep a system secure for the next decade. Learn more: https://aka.ms/iotshow/defenseindepth

    Azure Sphere is now generally available (http://aka.ms/iotshow/azuresphere), marking an important milestone in Microsoft’s commitment to provide an end-to-end security solution for securing any IoT device.
