3. Develop and Integrate

Develop your products and seamlessly integrate our network stack into them. RT-Labs are always ready to help you with the integration, either through the included support package or through a full integration project.

Purchase a deployment license and

3. Deploy

Finally, deploy your products in the market, paying only for the units you intend to produce.

Deployment licenses are purchased on a yearly basis and grant you the right to produce up to the specified license level. A deployment license can only be purchased if you have an active development plan or previously had one.

Each year, RT-Labs assists you in coordinating and balancing the deployment license level for the upcoming year, ensuring you have the appropriate licensing for your production needs
