IoT Hub

Connect, monitor and manage billions of IoT assets

Establish bidirectional communication with billions of IoT devices

Rely on Azure IoT Hub to easily and securely connect your Internet of Things (IoT) assets. Use device-to-cloud telemetry data to understand the state of your devices and assets, and be ready to take action when an IoT device needs your attention. In cloud-to-device messages, reliably send commands and notifications to your connected devices – and track message delivery with acknowledgement receipts. Device messages are sent in a durable way to accommodate intermittently connected devices.

IoT Hub works with platforms like Windows, Linux, Java and Microsoft .NET

Work with familiar platforms and protocols

Add new IoT devices – and connect existing ones – using open-source device SDKs for multiple platforms, including Linux, Windows and real-time operating systems. Use standard and custom protocols, including HTTP, Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) and MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT).

Authenticate per device for security-enhanced IoT solutions

Set up individual identities and credentials for each of your connected devices – and help retain the confidentiality of both cloud-to-device and device-to-cloud messages. To maintain the integrity of your system, selectively revoke access rights for specific devices as needed.

Manage your IoT devices at scale with device management

With new device management capabilities in IoT Hub administrators can remotely maintain, update and manage IoT devices at scale from the cloud. Save time and money by removing the task of developing and maintaining a custom device management solution or spending resources on travelling to maintain global assets.

Extend the power of the cloud to your edge device

Take advantage of Azure IoT Edge to make hybrid cloud and edge IoT solutions a reality. IoT Edge provides easy orchestration between code and services, so they flow securely between cloud and edge to distribute intelligence across a range of devices. Enable artificial intelligence and other advanced analytics at the edge, reduce your IoT solution costs, ease development efforts, and operate devices offline or with intermittent connectivity.
