Pressac’s sensors and wireless gateway receives Microsoft Azure certification
Pressac Communications has today announced it has received Microsoft Azure certification for its sensor range, along with the already approved wireless gateway, which connects smart sensors to the cloud.
The move means customers will be able to get their Internet of Things (IoT)-based smart sensor solutions up and running quickly and easily, with the benefit of knowing they have been pre-tested and verified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services.
The gateway device takes data from smart sensors and converts it into a format that is compatible with cloud platforms, which enable businesses to display, analyse and respond to this information in real-time.
This new certification means the sensors and gateway have been approved for use with Microsoft Azure, one of the leading cloud platforms.
Jamie Burbidge, Product Manager for Pressac, said: “Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT status validates our ability to quickly get customers IoT solutions up and running with minimal fuss, using pre-tested device and operating system combinations. It also gives them the assurance that our products have been certified by one of the world’s leading technology companies.”
IoT projects can be complex and take a long time to implement. Customers find that choosing and connecting the right set of devices, assets or sensors to the cloud can be time-consuming. Choosing products from a company that is part of the Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT program means they know in advance that their devices will work with the Azure IoT Suite and have been tested for readiness, compatibility and usability.
Jerry Lee, Director of Marketing for Azure Internet of Things, Microsoft Corp, said: “Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT extends our promise to bring IoT to business scale, starting with interoperable solutions from leading technology companies around the world.
“With trusted offerings and verified partners, Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT accelerates the deployment of IoT even further.”
