Building a bulletproof OTA update system for your IoT devices

Status: Coming up in December 2021!

OTA updates are used for everything from updating the firmware on an embedded device to delivering new features or content to a mobile app. Given the growing popularity and complexity of IoT devices, OTA updates have become a critical tool for managing the firmware on these devices. A robust OTA update system enables teams to resolve bugs quicker, ship more features, and keep customers happy. However, OTA updates can also pose a security risk if not implemented correctly.

To get the most out of OTA updates, it is important to follow best practices such as ensuring the device firmware update code is updateable, and testing OTA update functionality before rolling it out to a larger number of devices. Watch this presentation to learn how to build an OTA system that will ensure your IoT devices are updated safely and securely.
