Moxa Industrial Linux (MIL) is a high-performance industrial-grade
Linux distribution developed by Moxa to help accelerate your industrial
projects. MIL is based on Debian and the standard Linux kernel, which
makes it easy to deploy your applications on multiple systems.
To address the long-term
system needs of smart cities and industries such as power, water,
oil and gas, transportation, and factory automation, every odd-number
version (e.g., MIL v1.0, MIL v3.0) of MIL comes with 10-year Linux
support that includes security patches and bug fixes, making industrial
projects secure and sustainable.
In addition, Moxa is working with industry leaders to
create a reliable and secure Linux-based embedded software platform
that can be sustained for more than 10 years. Moxa is a member of
The Linux Foundation® and is part of its Civil Infrastructure Platform
(CIP) project that aims to create an open-source platform for managing
and monitoring smart cities, civil infrastructure, and factories,
to make them secure, reliable, scalable, and sustainable.
Over-the-air (OTA) Software Updates
Because gateway computers
are usually located at remote sites, it is a challenge to upgrade
the system and applications. A suitable way to upgrade the firmware
on remote computers is to use wireless technology such as cellular
or Wi-Fi. Moxa Industrial Linux supports an Advanced Packaging Tools
(APT) software-upgrade mechanism for remote upgrades.
Moxa Industrial Linux allows
users to keep the same kernel version and Debian user space without
having to frequently upgrade the entire system. In addition, subscription
services for Moxa Industrial Linux, throughout its 10-year life-cycle
phase*, provide security updates and bug fixes that include:
