Azure IoT Development Cookbook

By: Yatish Patil

Overview of this book

Microsoft’s end-to-end IoT platform is the most complete IoT offering, empowering enterprises to build and realize value from IoT solutions efficiently. It is important to develop robust and reliable solutions for your organization to leverage IoT services. This book focuses on how to start building custom solutions using the IoT hub or the preconfigured solution of Azure IoT suite. As a developer, you will be taught how to connect multiple devices to the Azure IoT hub, develop, manage the IoT hub service and integrate the hub with cloud. We will be covering REST APIs along with HTTP, MQTT and AMQP protocols. It also helps you learn Pre-Configured IoT Suite solution. Moving ahead we will be covering topics like:-Process device-to-cloud messages and cloud-to-device messages using .Net-Direct methods and device management-Query Language, Azure IoT SDK for .Net-Creating and managing, Securing IoT hub, IoT Suite and many more. We will be using windows 10 IoT core, Visual Studio, universal Windows platform. At the end, we will take you through IoT analytics and provide a demo of connecting real device with Azure IoT.

Using AMQP library to communicate with IoT Hub

AMQP is a binary transfer protocol made for server-to-server communication, but nowadays, it is widely used in IoT solutions. Azure IoT SDK supports the AMQP communication protocol.

However, in this recipe, we will be using the Amqp.Net Lite library that provides an AMQP protocol stack written in C#. This can be used across multiple .NET-based platforms such as console or UWP applications.

Getting ready

IoT Hub expects secure connectivity with AMQP by making a connection over port 5671 when data is ingested from the device to the IoT Hub.

In this recipe, we will make a sender link and a receiver link. The sender will be used for telemetry data to the cloud and the receiver will...
