The rapidly multiplying devices in an Internet of Things (IoT) deployment 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, the task of managing remote software updates is critical to effective operations of an IoT cloud.
For a technician to service each device for an update would be cost prohibitive. As a result, over-the-air (OTA) updates remains the only viable option. 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.
