NetCloud Edge Connector for Microsoft Azure IoT Central


The powerful combination of NetCloud Edge Connector and Microsoft Azure IoT Central enables customers to easily and confidently deploy IoT applications to drive business outcomes. Optimizing operational efficiency, increasing customer satisfaction and reducing CAPEX/OPEX for deployments are example benefits this solution can deliver.

NetCloud Edge Connector enables reliable and secure orchestration of IoT sensor data from Cradlepoint LTE edge routers to Microsoft Azure IoT Central. Now, Cradlepoint or Microsoft partners can easily build, deploy and securely host IoT applications at scale for their customers driving IT/OT convergence.



  • Secure – Enterprise-grade TLS security from NetCloud Service to Azure IoT Central
  • Scalability – Connect many unique sensors to Cradlepoint routers and easily deploy one to many routers for deployments.
  • Simplicity – Quick time-to-market with a low-code environment
  • Reliable LTE connectivity
  • IoT Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for management and analytics
  • Eliminate costly overhead associated with dedicated IoT overlay networks

System Architecture

Business intelligence from IoT sensors depends on reliable and secure connectivity to aggregate data from multiple sources, and then to derive visibility, management and actionable insights. The following system diagram provides an example of an end-to-end IoT solution delivering edge-to-cloud connectivity with security.
