Singtel, in collaboration with Microsoft, announced plans to launch an AI-Powered IoT Network over Microsoft Azure – a unified and programmable platform that combines intelligent connectivity with the cloud for IoT.
Through integrating Singtel’s IoT network functions into Microsoft Azure’s core cloud capabilities, IoT applications can flexibly migrate from devices, to networks and to clouds seamlessly. This collaboration overcomes traditional constraints, empowering enterprises to lower costs, improve performance, and accelerate digital transformation.
With computing powered by Microsoft Azure, the platform will also tap into Azure’s ever-expanding setof cloud services including IoT Hub, IoT Edge and other machine learning and cognitive services to extend cloud intelligence and analytics to devices. With insights-driven AI layered into the network, the platform delivers timely intelligence on the performance of applications and devices to facilitate better business decisions. This simplifies and facilitates the management, development and deployment of IoT devices and solutions in the cloud at scale.
