This allows the devices to be deployed anywhere in the world immediately after delivery. The devices can be managed via ecom’s online platform and updated remotely at any time during operation, without the need for an on-site IT staff or headquarters.

In addition, the platform analyzes historical data to identify critical software events, installations, and other safety-critical processes. A statistical accumulation of events can be used to establish correlations and causalities between software errors, geographical data, and Wi-Fi coverage, for example.
