Bosch IoT Suite: Leading for IoT device management
In particular, MachNation cited Bosch’s unique strengths in the following areas:
- Bosch has pre-packaged service offerings for device management for at-scale deployments: customers are alleviated of much of the development effort normally required to integrate various services cohesively.
- Bosch IoT Remote Manager and Bosch IoT Rollouts services provide excellent lifecycle management at scale: specifically targeted at larger deployments of managed devices in enterprise environments, the combination of Bosch IoT Remote Manager for lifecycle management and Bosch IoT Rollouts for software and firmware management provides an effective solution for control over large numbers of devices.
- Bosch IoT Suite services can be deployed in customer selected private clouds, public clouds, and on-premises in a flexible and scalable manner: for customers with more restrictive data security requirements, these options enable the Bosch device management solution to run entirely within customer-owned or customer-controlled systems, while also allowing the flexibility and simplicity of managed service offerings for customers willing to leverage public-cloud platforms.
- Bosch provides flexible and extensible southbound device protocol integration: a protocol adapter layer provides integration with a wide variety of southbound protocols including typical IoT protocols like MQTT and CoAP, device management standards such as LWM2M and TR-069, and a variety of industry-specific proprietary protocols.
