Establish two-way communication with millions of IoT devices
Easily connect IoT assets with Azure IoT Hub. Use device-to-cloud telemetry to find out the status of devices and assets and take immediate action as soon as devices need attention. Reliably send instructions and notifications to connected devices using cloud-to-device messaging, and track message delivery using confirmation receipts. Adapt to intermittently connected devices by sending device messages with persistent methods.
Use familiar platforms and protocols
Add new devices and connect existing devices with open source device SDKs that work on multiple platforms (including Linux, Windows and real-time operating systems). Use standard protocols and custom protocols including HTTP, Premium Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) and Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT).
Increase the security of IoT solutions with authentication for every device
Set identifiers and credentials for each connected device to help you keep cloud-to-device and device-to-cloud messages confidential. To maintain system integrity, please revoke access permissions for specific devices.
Manage IoT devices on a large scale using device management
Using Azure IoT Hub’s device management function, administrators can remotely maintain, update and manage IoT devices on a large scale, eliminating the need to develop and maintain custom device management solutions and expend further resources on maintaining global assets, and delivering savings in terms of both time and costs.
Make use of the intelligent edge via the Azure IoT gateway SDK
The IoT SDK provides a powerful framework to generate, configure and deploy edge logic, enabling you to do even more with Azure IoT. Whether you are choosing strategies or other data processing to connect to old devices, reduce bandwidth costs or improve security, the IoT Gateway SDK simplifies the deployment process, so that you can focus on the issues that really matter.
