The Cisco IoT Edge Device Manager (EDM) is a secure, cloud native, scalable tool to provision, manage and monitor IoT network devices.
Use the Edge Device Manager to bring new edge devices online in minutes instead of days — and easily manage them remotely with this secure cloud-hosted application. Edge Device Manager streamlines provisioning and provides you with ongoing visibility and control of your Cisco supported network devices from your desktop browser.
For example, in a transportation use case, network devices installed along a roadway can be remotely managed using EDM. All required network configurations can be pushed from a single point in the cloud across all network devices based on user defined templates.
Cisco EDM includes the following main features.
Zero-touch deployment (ZTD)
Quick and easy provisioning of IoT network devices minimizes costly manual work. Using Cisco Plug and Play Connect, Cisco industrial routers call home to Cisco IoT OD automatically, over cellular, or Ethernet, for onboarding and provisioning upon power up. An intuitive UI enables you to create groups and apply configuration templates or custom template to one or thousands of devices. - Accelerate device set up and configuration. - Reduce deployment cost and project risk associated with time-consuming and error-prone manual configuration. - Avoid the training costs associated with more complex deployment models.
