- Fail-safe OTA upgrades of both operating system and application, with comprehensive device and operations management
- Cloud middleware to address varied real-world use cases and enterprise integrations
- Widely available pre-provisioned modules, enabling easy device manufacturing

The Electric Imp Platform integration with Azure IoT Hub is based on the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP), enabling advanced IoT solutions for users that require commercial- and industrial-scale custom edge processing and data integration capabilities.
“We built our integration to virtually eliminate the complexities of deploying, commissioning, securing and managing IoT devices at scale for Microsoft Azure IoT Hub deployments,” said Hugo Fiennes, Electric Imp CEO. “We’re very pleased that customers can now focus on capturing and using their valuable business data instead of worrying about overcoming the constantly-changing challenges of first mile connectivity and security.”
Sam George, Director, Microsoft Azure IoT at Microsoft Corp. added, “Enterprises are looking for offerings backed by deep expertise as they adopt IoT. Electric Imp has many real-world, large scale industrial-grade IoT deployments.
