Swisscom has licensed Telit’s IoT application enablement platform as the core embedded technology for the new IoT services the mobile operator will be offering. The turnkey IoT platform will enable the Swiss communications provider to offer end-to-end IoT services and rapid application development.
The Cloud-based platform, powered by deviceWISE, is installed in the Swisscom data centre in Switzerland. The IoT platform includes all the critical connection, management and integration functions for scalable and secure IoT deployments.
Telit claims the differentiators provided by its platform include built-in capabilities for connectivity management, remote device management, edge intelligence, enterprise integration, end-to-end security, custom app creation, dash boarding and big data analytics.
The deviceWISE platform extends Swisscom’s service portfolio whereby Swisscom is adding business process design, predictive analytics and ERP integration centred on its customers’ connected ‘things’ under its system integration services.
The IoT platform also supplements the platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering for Swisscom customers. Swisscom recently launched its application cloud for developers. Swisscom aims to help its industrial customers develop solutions that foster efficiency in daily processes, increase customer intimacy and enables business model innovation.
“By 2020, it is expected that over 50 billion objects, machines and devices will be connected to the Internet worldwide, which will enable entirely new business models,” said Sergio Chiandetti, Head of Business Process Solutions & Services at Swisscom. “With the new IoT platform we are prepared to accompany our customers into the digital future.”
