BlackBerry QNX Over the Air (OTA)

A Customizable OTA Solution to Seamlessly and Securely update and Manage Endpoints.

Addressing the Most Complex OTA Challenges

When you hear about over-the-air (OTA) updates, you may think of remotely updating software on smartphones over a mobile network. But today’s OTA endpoints include systems in vehicles, robots on factory production lines and medical devices. Remote updates to complex systems like these come with increased risk for software bugs, security breaches and safety issues. BlackBerry QNX addresses this complexity with a flexible OTA solution that can be customized to seamlessly and securely update and manage endpoints, allowing you to focus on innovation—not software updates and maintenance.
Protecting Your Technology Investments

Protecting Your Technology Investments

Don’t throw away useful technologies for the sake of software updates. If your technology and processes are working for you, avoid disrupting or replacing them. Because different cloud and IT technologies don’t always interoperate, some OTA solutions require you to replace your existing update infrastructure. But QNX® Over the Air (OTA) works with your existing technology investments, including your authentication mechanisms, endpoint management systems, cloud, software repository and communication protocols.

Customized for Your OTA Project

Because there’s no one-size-fits all solution when it comes to meeting OTA requirements, QNX OTA builds on an initial framework and evolves with your changing needs, continually paving the way to new business opportunities. Our approach is modular, so we can tailor a solution to work with your unique technology environment and update requirements.
Leveraging BlackBerry Security Technology

Leveraging BlackBerry Security Technology

New OTA software updates have the potential to introduce vulnerabilities that could open backdoors to hackers down the road. QNX OTA offers uncompromising security features that are complemented by industry leading security technologies, including BlackBerry® Certicom® PKI, which can uniquely identify and authenticate both the source and target of your updates.
