Bosch Software Innovations and Huawei announced a partnership to make the Bosch IoT Suite available to Chinese IoT customers on Huawei Cloud.
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 of the Bosch IoT Suite will follow in 2019.
With offices in Shanghai and Nanjing, Bosch Software Innovations has been active in China since 2012 and has successfully implemented IoT projects ranging from Industry 4.0 to connected transportation. A leading Chinese automaker has chosen to deploy the Bosch IoT Suite on Huawei Cloud for updating its vehicles’ firmware over the air (FOTA). The solution is expected to be rolled out to millions of connected cars in China over the coming years.
Following this announcement, Bosch and Huawei 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.
