FAQ

  • Consider the following scenarios -

    1. A customer has 80 devices which send a total of 1,000 MB of data to the Microsoft IoT Central application. In this case the customer incurs a monthly fixed charge of $- per month which allows the customer to connect up to 100 devices.

      • $0 for additional devices (since the number of connected devices is less than the included quantity of 100 free devices)
      • $0 for additional traffic (since the traffic sent is equal to the included traffic)

      Total Monthly Charge =$- +$0 +$0 = $- per month

    2. A customer has 600 devices which send a total of 5,000 MB of data to the Microsoft IoT Central application. In this case the customer incurs a monthly fixed charge of $- per month which allows the customer to connect up to 100 devices.

      • Number of additional devices = 600 - 100 = 500
      • Additional Traffic = 0 MB since 600 devices come with 600*10 = 6,000MB of included traffic

      Total Monthly Charge = $-+(500*$-) +$0 = $- per month

    3. A customer has 800 devices which send a total of 9000 MB of data to the Microsoft IoT Central application. In this case the customer incurs a monthly fixed charge of $- per month which allows the customer to connect up to 100 devices.

      • Number of additional devices = 800 - 100 = 700
      • Additional Traffic = 9,000MB – (800*10 MB/device) = 1,000MB of included traffic

      Total Monthly Charge = $-+(700*$-) +(1,000 MB*$-/MB) = $- per month

  • Customers can go to www.microsoftiotcentral.com to access a trial or paid version of Microsoft IoT Central. Since Microsoft IoT Central is an Azure solution, customers have a variety of flexible payment options to make their purchase, including pay-as-you-go subscriptions, open licensing and enterprise agreements.

  • The Microsoft IoT Central trial allows users to connect up to 10 devices (real or simulated) and lasts for 30 days after activation. During this trial period, customers can test all the features of Microsoft IoT Central. You will not be able to create more devices upon reaching the trial limit of 10 devices or the end of the 30-day trial period. The data of the trial application is not retained after the end of the trial period. Customers will have to recreate the data when they restart the trial or move to a paid application.

  • The traffic is pooled across all devices and additional charges are incurred only if you exceed all available data in a month. For instance, if you have 110 devices you have a total of 110*10 MB/device = 1,100 MB of data. In this scenario you incur additional traffic charges only if you exceed the 1,100 MB of available data across all your connected devices.

    Device charges are incurred only if more than 100 devices are connected to the Microsoft IoT Central application. If 100 or less devices are connected in a month they are covered by the fixed monthly fee.
