Deutsche Telekom will be unveiling a new “Cloud of Things Starter Kit” that provides a simple entry-level digitization solution at the HANNOVER MESSE 2016, a leading trade fair for industrial technology. The solution is designed to enable companies of any size to monitor their machinery remotely without any time-consuming installation whether it is construction machinery, a transport box or a refrigerated truck. The combination of ready-to-run device and service from the cloud facilitates machinery and device monitoring.

To provide rapid access to the Internet of Things, the Starter Kit includes hardware in the form of a gateway and various sensors, a SIM card, a compatible data rate plan as well as access to the “Cloud of Things.” The platform which is run in a secure German data center processes the received data, which customers can then access via an online portal.

Sensors measure a series of values such as GPS data, temperature and humidity, which are then transferred to the Cloud of Things. Here various algorithms process the measured data to provide information, which can then be visualized. In this way, threshold values, for instance, can be defined for certain statuses of machinery and devices. If a value exceeds the defined threshold, the customer receives a warning and can immediately take remedial action.

T-Systems and Telekom Deutschland Sales will market the Cloud of Things Starter Kit to corporate customers and small and medium-sized enterprises during coming summer.

Hagen Rickmann, Director for Business Customers at Telekom Deutschland
With the Cloud of Things Starter Kit our customers can, among other things, network machinery, devices or vehicles without a major integration overhead and also monitor these remotely. Companies can try out and test the solution at an affordable price before they migrate large parts of their production and can even leverage the garnered insights to develop new business models which allow them to set themselves apart from the competition.
