The combination of Eurotech’s rugged Multi-service IoT Edge Gateways – enriched with Everyware Software Framework (ESF) – and Microsoft Azure IoT services, offers a solid foundation to quickly develop and deploy secure and scaling Edge to Cloud IoT applications.
The application optimized IoT Gateways, but also Edge Servers and CPU Boards, are designed to meet the requirements and certifications of vertical markets, including industrial, energy & utilities, medical, transportation and smart agriculture, are extended with a powerful IoT device middleware, seamlessly integrated with the Microsoft Azure IoT offering. This allows customers with a wide range of assets on the operational technology side of their business, to efficiently tap into the rich offering of cloud applications and services of Microsoft.
“The Microsoft Azure IoT Edge certification is a further validation of our ability to jumpstart customers’ IoT projects with proven and integrated hardware and software solutions” said Robert Andres, Eurotech CSO. “By eliminating integration efforts, this combination of Eurotech and Microsoft IoT building blocks ensure lower risk and a faster time to market for those companies that are pursuing digital transformation or getting started with new IoT projects.”

IoT projects are complex and take a long time to implement. Customers find that choosing and connecting the right set of devices, assets or sensors to the cloud can be time-consuming. To jumpstart their IoT projects with confidence, customers are looking for certified devices and platforms that are tested for readiness, compatibility and usability with the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite. By choosing a partner from the Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT program, customers can save time and effort on project specs and RFP processes by knowing in advance what devices and offerings will work with the Azure IoT Suite.
