Advantech, global top market-share holder in the field of industrial computing, announced it has joined Microsoft Azure Certified for Internet of Things (IoT), ensuring that customers can get IoT solutions up and running quickly with hardware and software that has been pre-tested and verified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services. Advantech IoT devices certified by Azure allow businesses to reach customers where they are, working with an ecosystem of devices and platforms, which allows for faster time-to-production.
There are already five Advantech IoT devices certified by Microsoft Azure which turn IoT solution into a new era. These devices focus on vertical markets in industrial automation, transportation, and the IoT field, which will be expanding rapidly in the near future. To speed up the implementation of POC and product prototyping, Advantech offers a further IoT starter software development kit to help realize customers’ IoT applications as efficiently as possible.
“To promote IoT industry development, Advantech works with Microsoft to build our WISE-PaaS software service, which integrates Advantech’s IoT software solutions and Microsoft’s Azure cloud services,” said Allan Yang, CTO of Advantech. “To accelerate clients’ IoT deployment, we’ve joined the Microsoft Azure IoT Certified program to ensure our IoT gateway UTX-3115, ARK-1123C, ARK-2121L, in-vehicle computer TREK-674, and automation controller UNO-1372G are pre-integrated with Azure cloud services. By doing so, we can provide clients with more comprehensive, end-to-cloud IoT integrated solutions.”
“We are able to jumpstart customers’ IoT projects with pre-tested device and operating system combinations that are validated through Microsoft Azure cloud services,” said Vice President Miller Chang. “Decreasing the usual customization and work required for compatibility ensures Advantech helps customers get started quickly on their IoT solutions.”
