Azure IoT Gateway SDK
Build in edge logic as part of a hybrid solution
- Connect new and earlier devices to the cloud
- Perform edge analytics
- Enable quick decision-making
- Operate solutions reliably
- Enhance the security of IoT solutions
- Reduce bandwidth costs
Harness the power of an edge intelligence ecosystem
Whether you want to connect earlier devices, reduce bandwidth costs, enforce security and privacy policies, or do other data processing, the cross-platform Azure IoT Gateway SDK takes care of routine tasks, so you can focus on other issues. Build on the open-source work of others, and extend the SDK in a familiar language—Node.js, Java, C#, or C—to implement logic specific to your scenario, on the platform of your choice.
An auto manufacturer that’s a Microsoft partner monitors their worldwide auto parts production in real-time and has improved efficiency in their factories across the globe. Built on an in-factory gateway based on the Azure IoT Gateway SDK, the solution analyzes production cycles, sends the data to the cloud, and then compares data from multiple factories to detect and identify manufacturing flaws. The on-premises gateway consolidates gigabytes of data produced by assembly line sensors into concise information about the production cycle, even without an internet connection.
Swedish partner Eniga connects residential buildings in Stockholm to the cloud using a LoRa gateway built with the Azure IoT Gateway SDK. Using advanced analytics applied to the data from several buildings, property owners proactively optimize energy resources such as water, heat, and electricity based on smart metering and previous billing. They also use building consumption data to make decisions about future building maintenance and care. Both short- and long-term savings produce higher profitability and better tenant experiences.
Retail vendors like Checkpoint Systems use the Azure IoT Gateway SDK to enable new delivery and in-store experiences. By connecting products with RFID tags to the cloud, Checkpoint Systems uses real-time inventory tracking to provide efficient delivery options for customers, such as buy online/pick up in-store, or buy in-store/home delivery. Also, data from in-store transactions combined with e-commerce and social media behavior provide valuable insights for loyalty program implementations.
