How do you update IoT devices that are disconnected in a hierarchy of IoT Edge devices, like you would see in an Industrial IoT environment with an ISA-95 network?

Device Update for IoT Hub and Microsoft Connected Cache preview IoT Edge module enables update for devices that are disconnected at any level of a hierarchy of IoT devices. We’ll demonstrate update of an Ubuntu package and a RP3 image on disconnected devices in a hierarchy.

Azure IoT Edge devices can now be nested to securely collect data across networks organized in hierarchical layers. Industrial customers commonly use layered networks to isolate and secure their most critical assets, as recommended by the ISA-95 standard.

With this new IoT Edge capability, customers can quickly overcome the challenges of collecting data from each layer and gain local insights to help reduce unplanned downtime, increase equipment efficiency, and reduce product defects while fully complying with strict industry standards.

Putting together a demo or a simple proof of concept for your Vision AI at the edge project has become pretty simple. But bringing this project to pilot then to production can be daunting.

Mahesh Yadav joins Olivier on this new episode to introduce the open source project VisionOnEdge which gives you all you need to rapidly get your project to a production ready state.

Here is how to update your disconnected IoT devices with Azure Update for IoT Hub.

The Microsoft Connected Cache Preview IoT Edge module will provide Device Update for Azure IoT Hub customers with the capability of an intelligent in-network cache, which enables image-based and package-based updates of Linux OS-based devices behind and IoT Edge gateway (downstream IoT devices).

In cases where downstream Azure IoT Edge devices do not have internet connectivity or may not be allowed to download content from the internet, this capability is important.

See how the Azure IoT team is working with the Smart Cities ecosystem to enable interoperability by providing DTDL-based ontologies.

Common representation of places, infrastructure, and assets will be paramount for interoperability and enabling data sharing between multiple domains. It is our goal to provide a DTDL-based ontology definition to provide common ground for modeling environments leveraging well-established industry standards, accelerate developers time to results, and enable interoperability between DTDL-based solutions from different solution providers. In this episode we present the work we have been doing with our partners Sirus/ OASC to provide DTDL based Smart Cities ontology starting with ETSI CIM NGSI-LD models.

Getting started with IoT devices is not trivial.

It usually involves lots of tooling, complex connectivity, and more.

Ryan Winter from the Azure IoT Developers and Devices team is creating Getting Started Guide that will walk you through connecting a new device to Azure IoT using the Azure RTOS, and the Azure RTOS IoT middleware in under 30 minutes.

Ryan will even demo one of these guides and will build Azure RTOS on an STMicroelectronics Discovery Kit and connect it to Azure IoT Central in about 5 minutes!

Microsoft IoT Developers’s Olivier Bloch shares his experience with an IoT Starter kit.

I was skeptical, but now stand corrected: you can connect an IoT Starter Kit designed for kids and beginners to Azure IoT Hub with no code, and it definitively is not that hard. See how that’s done with the M5Go IoT Starter Kit from M5Stack, based on an ESP32 chip and using Blocky.

Learn how to develop real-world Internet of Things solutions built with Microsoft Azure services from experts from around the world.

In this single-day event, we will cover topics ranging from IoT device connectivity, IoT data communication strategies, use of artificial intelligence at the edge, data processing considerations for IoT data, and IoT solutions based on the Azure IoT reference architecture. At the end of this event, you will have the knowledge to begin your journey to become a certified Azure IoT Developer!

Azure Defender for IoT is an agentless security solution for Operational Technology (OT) networks incorporating specialized IoT/OT-aware behavioral analytics from Microsoft’s recent acquisition of CyberX.

The new solution enables industrial and critical infrastructure organizations to secure their existing or brownfield devices without any performance impact or changes to existing environments. It’s also deeply integrated with Azure Sentinel and supports 3rd-party tools such as Splunk, IBM QRadar, and ServiceNow.
