FEATURE BRIEF IOT Using NetCloud Edge Connector for easy integration with Azure IoT Central Simplified Way to Reap the Benefits of Cloud-Based LTE Connectivity and IoT Management and Analytics Challenge IoT use cases are permeating virtually every industry and are increasingly having a greater impact on business outcomes — from monitoring crop health in agriculture to monitoring mission-critical environmental conditions in industrial applications. Today's businesses depend on data to make smart decisions about their business. The confluence of sensor data, predictable connectivity, and analytics are factors that drive increased operational efficiency, improved customer satisfaction, and/or reduced CAPEX/OPEX. In reality, end-to-end IoT deployments are typically complex, requiring specialized expertise, and costly, due to dedicated overlay networks. As a result, more than 60% of IoT initiatives never make it to production, impacting the organization's time-to-market and bottom line. Solution Cradlepoint and Microsoft Azure IoT Central deliver a framework that enables IoT deployments easily, securely, and at scale. NetCloud Edge Connector — a new feature within Cradlepoint's NetCloud Service — enables easy integration of a large number of distributed connected sensors with Azure IoT Central. Now, Cradlepoint or Microsoft partners can confidently build, deploy, and securely host IoT applications for their customers, who benefit from an end-to-end IoT solution driving IT/OT convergence and optimized business outcomes. System Architecture Business intelligence from IoT sensors depends on reliable and secure connectivity to aggregate data from multiple sources, and then to derive visibility, management and actionable insights through analytics. The following system diagram provides an example of an end-to-end IoT solution delivering edge-to-cloud connectivity with security. ©Cradlepoint.
