DeviceOps® Release Management


DeviceOps is a Release Management Solution for Rigado gateways.

Based on our work with companies deploying thousands… then tens of thousands… and then millions of devices in the field, we saw first-hand the challenges those teams faced in keeping connected products updated with their latest firmware and configuration.

To address those challenges, we created the DeviceOps Platform as a set of tools to power customers’ large-scale gateway and device updating and management solutions.

Quickly deploy builds
Free during development, DeviceOps integrates with existing CI tools for over-the-air updating of prototype gateways. There’s also a Web UI for easy access.

Securely provision devices
For production customers, Gateways can be provisioned at the point of manufacture – with secure IDs and encrypted keys – to enable verified updates in the field.

Orchestrate updates to devices in the field
DeviceOps integrates with other management systems to flexibly schedule, manage and apply updates to Rigado Gateways.
