DT Launches the First Open Platform for the IoT
Deutsche Telekom unveiled plans to simplify the complex Internet of Things. With its own platform, the company plans to bring all players together, including developers, operators, partners and suppliers.
This "hub" will be the new industry meeting place for the IoT. The most important goal is to make access and operation of an increasingly heterogeneous ecosystem as simple and manageable as possible. DT will not only rely on its own IoT offerings. The marketplace with diverse partner portfolio will offer customers should bring flexibility to simplify the setup and operation of individual IoT solutions.
“With the new hub for IoT we are exploiting the full potential of the Internet of Things," said Rami Avidan, responsible for Deutsche Telekom's IoT business. "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. With the spin-off of the IoT business into an independent company as of July 1, 2020, Deutsche Telekom aims to accelerate its market entry.
