Join us for lunch as Steve Willoughby presents how Azure IoT Hub can establish bi-directional communication with billions of IoT devices, work with familiar platforms and protocols, authenticate per device for security-enhanced IoT solutions, manage your IoT devices at scale with device management, and extend the power of the cloud to your edge device. Included will be an overview of an Industry 4.0 installation Logical Advantage has deployed at a key client site. This includes flow from machine spindle proximity switches to an inexpensive microcontroller to the Particle Cloud to IoT Hub to an Azure Function App to… Well you get the picture. If you want to hear about the whole thing, attend the session!
