Redbend Provides Over-the-Air Software Management Solutions for Samsung’s Tizen Smartphones

OTA Solution in Samsung Z1 Will Ensure Quick Updates and Complete Integrity

WALTHAM, Mass.--()--Redbend, the company that catalyzes change in the connected world by keeping more than 2 billion automotive, IoT and mobile devices relevant, today announced it is providing its OTA updating solutions to Samsung Z1 powered by Tizen, an open source multi-platform.

Redbend’s OTA updating solutions will enhance the reliability and performance of the platform and software on Samsung Tizen handsets. This latest collaboration strengthens the two companies’ long-existing partnership: When Samsung launched its first Android-powered smartphones, it adopted Redbend’s solutions to stabilize the platform and improve the performance of the company’s mobile devices.

Redbend’s Smart Delta technology delivers new features as well as application and operating system updates over the air to mobile phones and connected devices globally. The company’s innovative technology optimizes update packages and reduces device memory and bandwidth requirements, ensuring 100 percent fault-tolerant update integrity and completion.

The competitively priced Samsung Z1 is powered by Tizen, launched earlier this year in India and provides a user-friendly experience based on the fast, lightweight platform. Tizen is particularly fast, flexible and open, so the operating system is expected to power not only smartphones but also smart TVs, tablets and wearable devices. In addition, market watchers believe that Tizen will emerge as a core platform for smart homes and connected cars when the Internet of Things, which enables interaction with things via the Internet, becomes mainstream.

“Redbend has partnered with Samsung for years to provide an improved and reliable mobile user experience,” said John Seo, country manager, Redbend Korea. “Our efforts in developing new technologies will continue to ensure that customers can leverage the new Tizen ecosystem more easily and quickly through our solutions.”
