Firmware Over-the-Air

Smith Micro’s firmware over-the-air (FOTA) technology is a turnkey client-server solution that empowers OEMs, M2M system integrators and enterprises to update device firmware/software over-the-air, to proactively monitor device health with rules-based business logic, and efficiently manage connected devices throughout their entire lifecycle.

Harness the Scalability of the Cloud for Firmware OTA

Connected devices and the systems they comprise must be able to scale and adapt to support dynamic use cases and marketplace demands. To achieve this level of scalability with FOTA updates, your backend management server must be up to the task as well. As a turnkey, cloud service, Smith Micro’s FOTA offering can support connected devices at any scale. Learn how Kona S integrated FOTA technology into their device management platform.
