Bosch Launches IoT Software Solutions on Huawei Cloud
Bosch and Huawei announced a partnership to accelerate the development of the internet of things (IoT) in China. The collaborative agreement will see the two partners make Bosch’s IoT Suite software services available on Huawei Cloud.
“The demand for IoT solutions in China is rising. The partnership between Bosch and Huawei Cloud marks a decisive step for Bosch in one of the fastest growing IoT markets in Asia,” said Stefan Ferber, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations. The company expects China’s market for IoT platforms to grow by close to 70 percent over the coming years.
The Bosch software platform connects web-enabled objects to facilitate data sharing across a multitude of digital services and business models. The first service made available to Chinese consumers via Huawei Cloud will be the Bosch IoT Remote Manager, a service for managing and controlling gateways, sensors, and devices. Additional services will follow in 2019.
Following this announcement, two companies intend to develop an integrated end-to-end IoT offering. Huawei is developing IoT hardware gateways that will be pre-configured with Bosch IoT Gateway software and managed through the Bosch IoT Remote Manager to run on Huawei Cloud. This close integration will provide customers with a more complete IoT solution that is easier to deploy and manage.
