Deutsche Telekom has unveiled the world’s first open platform for IoT (Internet of Things) which will bring all players together, including developers, operators, partners and suppliers.
This “hub” will be the new industry meeting place for the Internet of Things. The new industry environment brings together the complete range of the most important elements that are essential for IoT solutions: connectivity, devices, cloud services and solutions for data analysis.
Deutsche Telekom is not only relying on its own IoT offerings. The marketplace with its diverse partner portfolio offers customers the greatest possible flexibility. This considerably simplifies the setup and operation of individual IoT solutions. It also drastically reduces the development time from individual customer solutions to market readiness.
Rami Avidan, responsible for Deutsche Telekom’s IoT business said, “The amalgamation of all IoT solutions into one framework provides a business environment that is unique to date. With this, Deutsche Telekom is establishing the world’s first open IoT network and expanding its role from IoT player to IoT orchestrator.”
The launch is planned for the second half of 2020. The IoT hub will be continuously expanded. Deutsche Telekom invites partners and customers to test the new IoT environment.
“As an independent company, we are more agile and can better address the fast-moving IoT market,” says Rami Avidan, CEO, Deutsche Telekom IoT GmbH.
The newly founded DT IoT will have end-to-end responsibility for the entire IoT business at Deutsche Telekom.
