BlackBerry QNX Over the Air (OTA)

A custom OTA solution built by the company that specializes in embedded software

Product Brief

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 can include systems in vehicles, robots on factory production lines, or medical devices. Remote updates to complex systems like these can come with an increased risk of 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, enabling you to focus on innovation, not software updates and maintenance.

Protecting Your Technology Investments

Our modular and flexible solution lets you seamlessly provide software updates to disparate technologies on the same endpoint, without the need to overhaul or invest in new cloud and IT infrastructure technologies.

Customized for Your OTA Project

When out-of-the-box solutions don’t meet your needs, rely on BlackBerry QNX. Our custom OTA solution is backed by experienced embedded system professionals to address your most complex needs.

Leveraging BlackBerry Security Technology

Our OTA solution leverages field-proven BlackBerry security technology such as Certicom PKI and works seamlessly with the BlackBerry® Jarvis® binary static application security testing (SAST) platform.

Protecting Your Technology Investments

Don’t throw away the technologies that are working simply to enable software updates. Your technology and processes may already be working for you, so you want to avoid disrupting or having to replace them. Because different cloud and IT technologies don’t often interoperate, some OTA solutions require you to replace your existing update infrastructure. BlackBerry QNX OTA works with your existing technology investments, including your authentication mechanisms, end-point 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, BlackBerry 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

New OTA software updates have the potential to introduce vulnerabilities that may open a backdoor for hackers down the road. BlackBerry QNX OTA offers uncompromising security features that are complemented by industry leading BlackBerry security technologies including BlackBerry Certicom PKI, a solution that can uniquely identify and authenticate both the source and target of your updates and BlackBerry Jarvis, a platform that can ensure the integrity of your software.
