SOLUM is now a member of Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT

Verified hardware and software enhance interoperability and allow faster time to production.

SOLUM announced it has joined Microsoft Azure Certified for Internet of Things (IoT), ensuring customers get IoT solutions up and running quickly with hardware and software that has been pre-tested and verified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services.

Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT allows businesses to reach customers where they are, working with an ecosystem of devices and platforms, allowing for faster time to production.

SOLUM provides state-of-the-art electronic shelf label solutions that keep retail businesses in touch with the digital age, including its own set of gateways. These make sure that updated information from the server is securely and quickly transmitted to all connected ESLs, thus being able to change the displayed information at all times.

The Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT program involves verification that one´s hardware, platforms and services are compatible with the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite. This is specifically the case for Solum´s portable ESL USB Gateway SLG-DM101.

The small form-factor sized device is largely aimed at cost-savvy clients, who are looking for a small-scale implementation of ESL´s and supports up to 5K labels. It comes integrated with a high-quality WIFI access point provider and can be easily connected to a computer or even directly to a WIFI access point, without the hassles of having to worry about gateway installation in the ceiling and setting up cables.

Why is SOLUM getting Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT?

IoT projects are 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. To jumpstart their IoT projects with confidence, customers are looking for certified devices and platforms that are tested for readiness, compatibility and usability with the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite.

By choosing a partner from the Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT program, customers can save time and effort on project specs and RFP processes by knowing in advance what devices and offerings will work with the Azure IoT Suite.
