Based in San Diego, California, Ectron Corporation announced it’s a collaboration with Microsoft Azure Certified for the Internet of Things (IoT). The partnership ensures customers to find solutions and run smoothly with hardware and software that are already pre-tested and verified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services. Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT helps businesses to reach customers and works with an ecosystem of devices and platforms, which allows for faster time to production.

Gautam Kavipurapu, Ectron’s COO and VP of Engineering, said, “Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT validate our ability to jumpstart customers’ IoT projects with pre-tested device and operating system combinations.” He further added, “Decreasing the usual customization and work required for compatibility ensures Ectron helps customers get started quickly on their IoT solution.”

To this, Jerry Lee, Director of Marketing for Azure Internet of Things, Microsoft Corp., commented, “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.” Lee also said, “With trusted offerings and verified partners, Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT accelerates the deployment of IoT even further.”

Ectron Corporation is a supplier of ruggedized signal conditioners, amplifiers, and thermocouple calibrators. To work with Microsoft Azure, Ectron’s Azure IoT certified family of ECT-ECI edge computers let customers deploy Ectron’s plug and play solution for IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) along with providing edge and cloud analytics.

As IoT projects are complicated, it may take a longer time to implement them. According to customers, selecting and connecting the right set of devices, assets, or sensors to the cloud is a time-consuming task. Customers take the help of certified devices and platforms that have already been tested for compatibility, readiness, and usability with the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite to start their IoT projects in full force.

Choosing the right partner from Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT program helps customers to save time and effort on project specifications and RFP (Request For Proposal) processes. This will again help to know in advance what devices and offerings will work with the Azure IoT Suite.
