The rapidly multiplying embedded devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) require remote management capabilities for constant updates of the embedded software. With a multitude of assets dispersed across geography, terrain, industrial environments, office spaces or customer locations in an IoT deployment, the task of managing remote software updates is critical to effective operations of an IoT cloud. Industry verticals such as automotive, manufacturing, mining, agriculture, e-health and connected spaces rely ever more on a high performing IoT cloud for desired outcomes.
IoT delivers the potential for a strong ROI for organizations looking to adopt a solution for cost reduction, productivity advantages, or business transformation. However, like all IT deployments, ROI can only be realized through streamlined execution. Remote Management of IoT Solutions involves firmware upgrades, diagnostics, basic troubleshooting, security patches, and configuration changes, all of which could be delivered remotely and securely to the IoT devices - wherever those may be - from a central location. For a technician to service each device for an update would be cost prohibitive. As a result, over-the-air (OTA) updates remain the only viable option.
