New enterprise software makes it quick and easy to remotely deploy and control LINCWorks products.

Today Olea Networks announced the availability of its new remote software management suite—Olea EDGEWorks Fog Computing Platform—that significantly enhances the functionality of Olea Network’s product portfolio, the LINCWorks line of rugged mobile gateways. The new offering makes it incredibly simple, fast and efficient to deploy LINCWorks RDA and VAN units and provides an intelligent controller that allows administrators to access, monitor and control devices, networks, applications and data. With its open architecture, the Olea EDGEWorks platform allows enterprises to remotely install and manage applications anytime, anywhere.

Olea EDGEWorks enables remote configuration, provisioning, deployment and monitoring of LINCWorks devices, applications installed onto those devices, and data aggregated from wireless sensors and distributed networks connected via the LINCWorks devices. Enterprises using cellular, Wi-Fi or mesh communication services now have greater flexibility in how they choose to operate and control remote deployments. The on-board Linux-based computer in each LINCWorks product, with open APIs, means that organizations can provision devices with applications, diagnose connectivity and service devices remotely via a secure, intuitive, web-based management interface.

Olea EDGEWorks advanced security establishes highly secure, trusted networks utilizing an intelligent certificate management approach. Each connection ensures devices are authenticated and authorized, safeguarding trusted communication tunnels. This approach to security improves application monitoring and policy management for improved data billing and services management.

“Our first step as a company was to enable connectivity remotely to facilitate efficient and consistent communication for organizations regardless of location or the elements,” said Olea Networks CEO Dave Mackie, “and now we are excited to take the next big leap with our Olea EDGEWorks Fog Computing Platform, which utilizes that connectivity to give organizations a high degree of control over the networked products we have enabled. Additionally, we have managed to provide a solution that is highly flexible and extremely secure.”

With the rise of wireless sensors, internet-connected devices and the incredible amount of data accumulated in every imaginable business scenario, mobile devices will require greater processing power. As computing power becomes more necessary at the network edge, devices and sensors will become increasingly more intelligent, requiring new methods of deployment and management. Olea Networks provides a simple yet robust remote management solution that addresses the needs of our information-driven era while anticipating micro-computing and industrial networking on the edge.
