Continuous Integration / continuous deployment is getting more and more important in IoT OTA.

qbee is your go-to platform for all your IoT OTA (over-the-air) update needs, whether you want to update your IoT software or patch your base Linux library. Stay informed about new upstream versions and CVE vulnerabilities and update your devices as needed.

Delivering software updates over the air can be done in many ways, such as packages, tarballs, or file distribution with additional scripting and advanced installation logic. qbee offers multiple options to achieve the goal of an always-updated device fleet.

Our pull and state-based approach is particularly useful if devices are seldom online or are kept offline for long periods. Even spare devices will immediately converge to the last defined state and apply all relevant IoT software updates via OTA instead of missing a pushed update.

Many of our customers use our REST API and GitHub to run a CI/CD pipeline. We offer qbee GitHub runner functions to simplify the process, but our continuous integration/continuous deployment can be used with any other tool as well. Uploading a program file to the file manager can trigger IoT OTA updates for the whole fleet, a specific group, or a single device. Just reach out and we can show you how this works.
