More efficiency in production, better services, new business models – these are what the Internet of Things (IoT) make possible. But many companies still lack the imagination as to how to make profitable use of data from digitally connected machines, systems and goods. Customer-specific IoT solutions such as those offered by AKKA Digital (formerly GIGATRONIK) in cooperation with TELEKOM Deutschland GmbH are the key to success.
Digitised machines, products and processes deliver enormous quantities of data. The real art is in cleanly collecting the relevant information, filtering it specifically and identifying the economic potential behind it. This is a skill which the specialists at AKKA Digital possess. With interdisciplinary knowledge from IT and electronics, they analyse operational processes in companies, identify the technological need and highlight how future-proof concepts up to and including new business areas can be realised with the help of individual Industry 4.0 solutions. Telekom takes on the role of carrier, transporting digital data and hosting the "Cloud of Things" platform. Telekom also hosts, manages and optimises the traffic and the management of devices and sensor data using their two IoT platforms, "M2M Service Portal" and "Cloud of Things". AKKA Digital integrates the software applications and hardware components into a smoothly functioning overall solution. More information on the potential of customer-specific IoT solutions can be read in the following interview.
