Technical details of the project
The basis for this project was a complex solution with 30 Docker containers per gateway - for OpenThread Border Routers as well as for AI inference.
K-PORT simplifies handling: in future, the distribution of the containers to the devices in the field will only require a manual upload to the system and selecting the target systems regardless of their location.
In addition, it is possible to test updates first in small groups and check them in real-time on the corresponding device using the remote function. An automated mass roll-out can then take place.
Advantages for the customer
Using susietec® KontronOS significantly reduces the monthly data volume required for each device. Modifying the firmware of the OpenThread modules also ensures that individual modules can be used directly from a Docker containert.
Another advantage is that susietec® KontronOS runs on the components that are actually needed: in its hardened state, the operating system transmits only delta updates by comparing the current status in the device with the latest version on the server.
This reduces the bandwidth of the integrated LTE modems as well as the roaming costs incurred.
