Engineering Portal

Short introduction

The Engineering Portal is ran by Advantech B+B SmartWorx CZ R&D team.

The basic idea behind this web is to serve a few purposes:

  • Help the complete support chain, partners, and distributors to find actual information materials regarding routers, be it firmware, declarations of conformity, configuration manuals and more.
  • Allow Czech R&D team to provide development instructions concerning source code to distributors and other interested parties and thus properly fulfill the idea behind Opensource components which are being used in our products.
  • Establish information channel so that the right information can be distributed to the right audience in the right form - blog posts, automatic notifications, and by other means.

...

The EP is in its early stage right now. We (Czech R&D) are going to provide more information during time and we would like you to enjoy this portal.

As with any portal, the best way to get a feeling how does this work is to start using it. How? Go to your favourite product, download new firmware version, subscribe to get updates, check DevZone, explore User Modules... just use it!
