What is an IoT solutions engineer?


IoT solutions engineers combine three core components such as data, technology as well as research. They operate in close collaborations with Business Analytics, Engineering, Data Science, and Design teams. The purpose is to produce the topmost IoT solutions for contemporary issues.

Azure IoT Hub is regarded as the fundamental solution for the connection between the back-end with any device possible. It is a cloud-hosted solution. Azure IoT Hub can be connected to any device or device-to-cloud telemetry and it assists the uploading of files from devices.

Azure IoT Hub endorses monitoring and it also helps you to track your device connections, creations, and failures. In the contemporary world of IoT, the Azure IoT hub is something that everyone will blindly go for. Its obsession and truthfulness with safety and security catch the eye of people at the helm of working.

It enables organizations across various industries to enhance their business to accomplish their IoT goals.

Working of Azure IoT Hub

Azure IoT Hub also allows a particular service that assists communication and further mitigates interactions and communications between back-end systems and devices. This can give us the benefit of a bi-directional and secure communication system. It prioritises security before anything.

Devices are trained not to take up any irrelevant or unnecessary information. Regular check on instructions is made sure of. IoT also gives cues for messages set for communication with devices in areas with network issues. It allows and acknowledges the device before sending anything. It will only send the important data after its validation.

It sets up application payload data. It is separately kept safe. This is done so that any data flowing through will be secured for safe transit through gateways. Before sending or receiving data among devices, it is wrapped wisely. These devices can be configured before reaching a gateway to lengthen the range.

The communication is done via a gateway with Azure IoT Hub.

What is an IoT solutions engineer?

We know that the field of engineering is so dynamic that it holds many disciplines and skill sets under itself.

The job of developing, managing as well as monitoring IoT devices must be performed under professional expertise which is given by IoT developers.

The role of IoT developers and engineers is highly versatile. The areas of concern are security, networking, systems engineering, cloud programming, as well as hardware device programming. A degree of flexibility is delivered by this to the IoT engineers.

What are the responsibilities of an IoT Engineer?

The responsibilities of an IoT engineer include research, build, as well as test IoT solutions with firmware development.

They also perform tasks like development of local IoT device software. This encompasses monitoring and execution.

To learn the functionings of and implement new state-of-the-art tools/techniques to showcase experience in quick prototyping methods and structured implementation. They also design as well as develop the Iot  platform solutions. This is for the cloud-to-edge IoT applications which have configuration that can be customized for various needs and requirements.

What does MQTT imply?

MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is nothing but a lightweight messaging protocol that was developed by IBM and was first released in 1999. MQTT can also be defined as a publish-subscribe network protocol that transports messages between devices.

It translates messages between devices, servers and applications.

Initially, the MQTT protocol was created to link sensors on oil pipelines with communication satellites, with prominence on minimal battery loss and bandwidth consumption. A few out of the several benefits offered by MQTT are minimized data packets, energy efficiency, real-time operation with little to no delay, and retained messages that clients automatically receive after subscribing.


IoT solutions engineers take up the tasks of designing new IoT services for communication among server-side technology as well as the development of MEAN stack solutions if required.

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is responsible for connecting or exchanging data among devices over several networks. It is a network of traditional devices.

More than ten billion devices are connected currently all over the globe. Every year, this number increases exponentially. Everything willing to be embedded with sensors or software can easily be connected over the internet.
