Based on real customer examples and pilot projects, Deutsche Telekom is showing how easy it is for business enterprises of all sizes and in all branches of industry to benefit from the Internet of Things.
Connecting machines and devices with each other through the Internet of Things is leading to new business models such as condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. Hörmann, a German manufacturer of industrial high-speed roller doors and rolling gates, is equipping many of its products with sensors and wireless technology to connect them with the Cloud of Things, the Deutsche Telekom cloud platform for the Internet of Things.
Maintenance work at an early stage
Hörmann service employees use a web portal to access the status, fault and diagnostic information of door controllers so that they can respond quickly to problems or door malfunctions. The connected solution supports Hörmann in providing remote maintenance for its doors worldwide: If the system identifies wear at an early stage, the company can take immediate steps to initiate maintenance work at an early stage, minimize outages, and extend the lifetimes of high-speed doors that are subject to heavy use.
Roambee and the uninterrupted supply chain
Together with Roambee in the United States, DT has developed an innovative solution for monitoring transport worldwide in real time. Business enterprises get a complete overview of the supply chain, showing precisely when and where valuable goods are picked up from factories and delivered to sales locations. Roambee also supports status monitoring and predictive maintenance of elevators and equipment.
The connected carrying case
Technical field service staff at Kaeser relies on carrying cases that contain high-value measurement and inspection devices. These cases are delivered to customer sites by an independent transport company. Thanks to an integrated sensor and wireless connection to the Cloud of Things, each carrying case can be tracked and located at any time. What's more, an alarm signal is activated if a case is opened without authorization. This kind of transparent logistics process prevents carrying cases from being lost or stolen. In addition, field service is more efficient and costs can be reduced dramatically.
