Overcoming the Challenges with M2M Device Lifecycle Management
Machine to Machine (M2M) connectivity holds the promise to transform the productivity and potential of virtually every industry vertical, from Transportation, to Healthcare to Industrial Automation to Energy Management and others. In most cases mobile connectivity is the critical network technology. There are parallels that can be learned from the mobile space, as we know it, but there are vital differences in the demands of the M2M end-point compared to that of a traditional mobile device. In particular, is the difference in the device lifecycle.
M2M end-point deployment lifecycles will be years, and in some cases decades, as opposed to the lifecycle of today's mobile devices that is often measured in months. This coupled with the fact that M2M endpoints are often remote and unattended dictates the need to not only monitor these devices, but also to provide software updates to those devices without the high cost of hands on maintenance.
Join QNX Software Systems and Deutsche Telekom AG for this webinar as we address these critical questions:
- How can you ensure deployed endpoints can be seamlessly updated and modified to meet changing requirements?
- How do you future proof the end point to ensure it will have the capacity to take on yet unknown needs.
- Who can companies turn to in order to enable and support these solutions?
Who Should Attend: This seminar is best suited for Business developers, Software engineers and designers; Hardware engineers and designers; and System architects and engineers.Presenters:
