IoT Central gateway device using IoT SDKs

Is it possible to implement a gateway device without using the IoT Edge runtime?

The gateway and it's downstream devices would be attached to IoT Central. (There I can create a gateway template no problem, but that alone does not give me gateway functionality anywhere).

A gateway would be a device to which IoT devices can connect to using the IoT device client libraries (which Azure provides for Python and other languages). The gateway would forward these messages to IoT Central.

    Hello @randomrabbit ,

    the gateway device offering is based on the transparent gateway solution, part of the Azure IoT Edge runtime functionality.

    Each child has its own credentials. Messages are flowing through the IoT Edge device routing system.

    To setup a gateway is documented here. Notice this documentation refers to the IoT Hub but this is the same technology used.

    I did something similar in the past. This blog post shows how I set up the transparent gateway.
