At Computex 2018, Microsoft announced the new Windows 10 IoT Core Services that will provide 10 years of support along with services to manage device updates and assess device health. This will enable Microsoft’s partners to build secure IoT-device based on Windows with the confidence of maintaining their device up-to-date even after years. Microsoft today announced that public preview of Windows 10 IoT Core Services is now available. Unlike Windows 10 IoT Core which is available for free, Windows 10 IoT Core Services will be a paid offering for IoT devices. Learn about the pricing details below.
- Businesses and solution integrators can purchase IoT Core Services through an Azure subscription. The subscription price will be $0.30 per device per month when the product releases later this fall. During the preview period, the price is $0.15 per device per month.
- Partners enrolled in our Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program will be able to resell the service and establish ongoing relationships with their customers. They can sell a flexible, pay-as-you-go subscription as needed to meet device requirements. This option will be available later in the year.
- OEMs can license the service with a device by pre-paying for the service. This option will be available later in the year.
