What is this service all about?

The Bosch IoT Remote Manager provides a backend device management and monitoring system for various classes of gateways and devices. It is based on the ProSyst technology and comes with all of the features that are also available in the on-premise ProSyst mPRM remote device management and software provisioning system product and enables the following use cases:

  • Platform, application and service life cycle management (remote install, update, uninstall, configure – on the fly)
  • Firmware and file update
  • Remote configuration and provisioning
  • Remote monitoring and diagnostics (life status checks, logging, monitoring, etc.)
  • Remote security administration

The Bosch IoT Remote Manager supports the most common industry standards for remote device management, such as TR-069 and OMA DM, so any IoT gateways based on these protocols can be easily connected and managed. This proven technology is already used in many commercial product deployments in smart home, manufacturing, connected car, and eHealth.
Bosch IoT Remote Manager provides the basis for end-to-end IoT solutions.
