Azure IoT Edge for Industrial IoT

3 parts - 90 mins

This sample shows how to simulate an industrial environment and use a hierarchy of IoT Edge devices to extract data from industrial assets, visualize it offline and upload it to the Cloud.

Manufacturing networks are often organized in hierarchical layers following the Purdue network model (included in the ISA 95 and ISA 99 standards). In these networks, only the top layer has connectivity to the cloud and the lower layers in the hierarchy can only communicate with adjacent north and south layers.

In a first part, we'll simulate in Azure a Purdue network, industrial assets and a hierarchy of IoT Edge gateways to acquire industrial data and upload it to the cloud securely without compromising the security of the network.

Simulated Purdue Network with a hierarchy of IoT Edge devices

In a second part, we'll remotely deploy workloads to IoT Edge devices in order to 1/collect data from industrial assets over OPC UA with OPC Publisher, 2/store this data in a local SQL Edge database and 3/visualize this data locally even when offline. We'll build these workloads using a CI/CD pipeline with Azure DevOps.

Offline dashboard to monitor IIOT assets

In a third part, we'll remotely monitor the health of all our IoT Edge devices independently from the network location.
