'Living Wall' Creator Cultivates and Builds IoT Solution

Cradlepoint, the global provider of cloud-delivered LTE and 5G Ready wireless network edge solutions, has announced that Sagegreenlife, an award-winning creator of natural “Living Walls” spaces, has rolled out a “Build Your Own IoT” (BYOIoT) solution using Cradlepoint´s NetCloud Edge Connector for Microsoft Azure IoT Central, the company said.

The solution is the foundation of the Sagegreenlife IoT strategy, allowing it to remotely monitor the health of thousands of plants at customer locations.

Using the new BYOIoT solution enables Sagegreenlife to analyze its Living Walls in real time, identify problems and alert maintenance teams to protect plant health. By installing IoT-enabled sensors into its irrigation systems, Sagegreenlife collects performance data and transmits it via Cradlepoint NetCloud and LTE routers to a monitoring application hosted on Azure IoT Central.

The Cradlepoint NetCloud Edge Connector for Azure IoT Central is now available for active subscribers of the NetCloud Service. The service provides a simple-to-setup, reliable and secure edge-to-cloud connection for sending IoT data directly into Azure IoT Central and runs on select Cradlepoint wireless router solutions for branch, mobile and IoT networking. It includes an update to the NetCloud Operating System (NCOS) as well as simplified workflow within NetCloud Manager.
