Softdel’s extensive experience with multiple communication protocols and gateway development influenced the customer to partner with us and develop a firmware and software system for their platform, which could enable easy Over-The-Air (OTA) firmware upgrades, be commissioned via a mobile application, and integrate with building management systems (BMS).
