Swisscom will use Telit’s platform as it bids to offer a range of IoT services.
Telit said its deviceWISE platform would enable Swisscom to offer end-to-end IoT services and launch new applications quickly.
The cloud-based IoT platform contains the core connection, management and integration functions needed for IoT deployments as well as built-in connectivity and device management, end-to-end-security, big data analytics and app creation capabilities.
It is intended to supplement Swisscom’s System Integration Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), under which the operator is offering Business Process Design, Predictive Analytics and ERP Integration for connected devices.
Sergio Chiandetti, Head of Business Process Solutions & Services at Swisscom, said: “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.
“With the new IoT platform we are prepared to accompany our customers into the digital future.”
In July, Telit launched what it labelled a “pan-European” IoT service that offers Europe-wide connectivity out of the box.
The company is also working on an IoT algorithm with Telenor Connexion and Allianz that will allow connected devices to perform at their best.
Fred Yentz, President and CEO of Telit IoT Platforms, said: “Licensing our IoT Platform to mobile network operators is an integral part of our IoT services strategy and rapidly becoming a growth engine for Telit’s business.
“We are having tremendous traction with leading operators worldwide and Swisscom is among the most innovative operators to recognise early the value and convenience of licensing and integrating a proven IoT Application Enablement Platform to offer new IoT services and generate new revenues.”
