Interested in running cloud intelligence on edge devices? This path is the place to start to learn how to use Azure IoT Edge to build IoT solutions that require having cloud intelligence deployed locally on IoT Edge devices. Azure IoT Edge is a fully-managed service built on Azure IoT Hub. Deploy your cloud workloads—artificial intelligence, Azure and third-party services, or your own business logic—to run on Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices via standard containers. By moving certain workloads to the edge of the network, your devices spend less time communicating with the cloud, react more quickly to local changes, and operate reliably even in extended offline periods.

In this learning path, you will:

  • Learn more about how intelligent edge can unblock new scenarios
  • Learn how to deploy prebuilt modules to the Edge device
  • Learn how an IoT Edge device can be used as a gateway

Skills learned in the learning path:

  • Set up and deploy an IoT Edge device
  • Develop modules
  • Configure an IoT Edge device

Once you complete this learning path, you will have the understanding on how Azure IoT Edge moves cloud analytics and custom business logic to devices so that your organization can focus on business insights instead of data management.



Modules in this learning path

Explain the essential characteristics of the IoT Edge and the functionality of the IoT Edge components (modules, runtime, and cloud interface). Characterize the types of problems that you can solve with IoT Edge. Describe how the elements of IoT Edge can be combined to solve the problem of deploying IoT applications in the cloud.

Deploy a pre-built temperature simulator module to an IoT Edge device using a container. Check that the module was successfully created and deployed and view simulated data.

This module is theoretical and will walk you through how an IoT Edge device can be used as a gateway.
