Sierra Wireless, a provider of integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things, announced a strategic collaboration with Microsoft to provide a full-stack IoT solutions. To allow this, Sierra Wireless’ Octave edge data orchestration solution has been connected with Microsoft Azure IoT Central. The solution is supposed to simplify and accelerate the process of getting edge data to the cloud. Sierra Wireless also intends to migrate its existing cloud infrastructure from AWS to utilize Azure’s full complement of cloud services.

Azure IoT Central is a software-as-a-service solution that simplifies building and deploying production-grade IoT applications without need for cloud computing experience or specialized skills. 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. The integration will allow customers to focus on their business rather than spending time with technical infrastructure. This can lead to lower costs and shorter development time.
