Sierra Wireless's Edge-to-Cloud Integrates with Azure IoT Central

By Ken Briodagh June 25, 2019

Sierra Wireless, which is a provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the IoT, will begin a strategic collaboration with Microsoft to provide one of the industry’s first full-stack IoT solutions.

Sierra Wireless’s’ new Octave edge data orchestration solution has been successfully connected with Microsoft Azure IoT Central. Once in production, the solution will simplify and accelerate the process of getting edge data to the cloud. This will enable enterprises to achieve the value of IoT for the industry 4.0 world. This will also allow businesses and organizations to utilize the value of IoT for the industry 4.0 world. Sierra Wireless intends to migrate its existing cloud infrastructure from AWS to utilize Azure’s full complement of cloud services.

“The combination of Sierra Wireless’ full suite of IoT solutions and Azure IoT Central addresses a critical gap in the marketplace. We’ve consistently heard from customers about how complex it is to integrate IoT technology, which takes time and focus away from their core business. This collaboration creates a category-of-one IoT solution that will accelerate edge data into the cloud, allowing enterprises across the globe to monetize IoT,” said René Link, CMO and SVP, corporate strategy and Go-To-Market operations, Sierra Wireless.

Microsoft’s Azure IoT Central is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that allows customers to build and deploy production-grade IoT applications in hours without cloud computing experience or specialized skills. Sierra Wireless’s Octave merges edge devices, network and cloud APIs into a single platform that securely extracts, orchestrates and acts on data from remote assets at the edge to the cloud. This integration will enable users to focus on building their business rather than reinventing technical infrastructure. This will also allow for dramatically reductions in costs and development time from several months to days.  

“As a leader in integrated IoT solutions, Sierra Wireless’ edge-to-cloud capabilities are an ideal complement to Microsoft Azure IoT Central. Together with Microsoft’s Azure IoT Central offering, this strategic collaboration will enable cloud developers to deploy secure, intelligent and reliable IoT device connectivity and collect data as an extension of their Azure IoT Central experience,” said Tony Shakib, principal group PM manager, Azure IoT, Microsoft.

Currently, the product is in preview with lead customers only.
