Torizon OTA is a convenient and secure mechanism that enables remote over-the-air updates for either a single unit or a fleet of devices. After updating a single device, we will create a fleet to start a software update on multiple devices.

For this Quickstart Guide:
Note: This is a requisite for the entire Quickstart, but our Torizon OTA app will run on any browser, on any Linux, Windows or MacOS.
For this lesson:
Go to the Dashboard again and click on "Add Fleet", insert a name for your fleet and click on Continue.
Click on the three horizontal bars icon in the upper left corner of the page to expand the menu, select "Fleet Manager", and then click on your new fleet.
Add new devices to your fleet, by clicking on the (+) button.
Note: In our case, we only have one device, but you can add more if you have additional devices.
Go to the Dashboard again and click to initiate an update in your fleet:
Warning: Be sure to click on the button corresponding to your fleet, not your device.
Update your fleet the same way you did with your device in the previous lesson.
All the devices in your fleet will start upgrading, as shown in the dashboard. Wait until the process finishes.
During the early phases of evaluation and development, such as when going through this Quickstart Guide, you will most likely have only one device. This lesson illustrates the power of OTA management systems at a later stage of development when you will need to plan how you will update various devices on the field. Torizon OTA already solves that for you, helping to bring your solution to the market faster.
