Device Management and Monitoring Solution

The ability to securely remotely manage and monitor constrained Internet of Things (IoT) devices and networks is a key market requirement as:

  • Industrial IoT devices are typically deployed in inaccessible places and the cost of managing and maintaining these e.g. to upgrade the firmware or change configuration settings can be prohibitive
  • Manufacturers and suppliers are under pressure to shorten Time-To-Market of new products – which means that the devices are often shipped and deployed with embedded software bugs or features missing
  • Security is a key concern and the ability to update software/firmware over the long-lived lifetime of industrial IoT devices is essential

To meet this requirement Connect2 Systems have developed a remote ‘Over-The-Air’ (OTA) Device Management and Monitoring solution.
