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.

IoT Edge analytics using a simulator

Edge computing is the next stage for IoT solutions, with Microsoft recently releasing a new service for running analytics at Edge devices. Azure IoT platform is extending the capabilities; this service is called IoT Edge.

The new platform can run on Windows and Linux OS. It can run on devices with 128 MB memory. It provides modules to run Azure services like Azure functions, Stream Analytics, Azure's machine learning, and artificial intelligence capabilities which will all be available on IoT Edge.

As Microsoft Azure states, some of the benefits and advantages of using Azure IoT Edge are as follows:

  • Perform edge analytics
  • Deploy IoT solutions from cloud to edge
  • Manage devices centrally from the cloud
  • Enable real-time decisions
  • Connect new and legacy devices
  • Reduce bandwidth costs
