- Packages for the gradual migration of business processes
- Router plus line opens up IP-based communications
- Industry 4.0 package to control machinery and devices remotely
At CeBIT 2015, Deutsche Telekom is presenting its “Wirtschaftswunder” packages aimed specifically at small and mid-size enterprises. The packages enable SMEs to access IP-based communications, control their machinery remotely, or offer their customers free Wi-Fi, for instance. “Not all small and mid-size enterprises are ready to embrace the digital world at present. Our packages allow them to migrate their business processes gradually and master key challenges such as greater flexibility and productivity, better collaboration and greater customer proximity,” says Dirk Backofen, Head of Marketing (Business Customers) at Telekom Deutschland.
With the “IP Digitization” package companies can migrate to IP-based communications. Deutsche Telekom supplies a router, which combines the functions of a splitter, a DSL modem, a VPN router and a Wi-Fi access point in a single device. It can also be used as an IP-based PBX for up to 15 subscribers and a maximum 20 devices. The package also includes the new IP line “DeutschlandLAN IP Voice/Data” with Internet speeds of up to 50 Mbit/s including a data flat rate. And a flat rate for calls to the German fixed network and 18 other countries is also thrown in for good measure. The package also comes with a fixed IP address, the IP system telephone “IP 120” and a fault resolution service within a maximum eight-hour response time. A touch variant of the IP telephone is also available as an option.
Software for the digital office
The “Office digitization” package helps companies lay the foundations for their digital office. The scope of supply includes a software package with download versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, which can also be used while on the move on up to five devices. The second component is a freemium version of “TeamLike” for five users, which allows companies to replace their existing intranet. Ultimately, the social business collaboration platform from the TelekomCloud allows employees to share knowledge more easily, network with colleagues, and handle projects more efficiently. Customers will also be able to add on a freemium version for five users as a standalone product in the Business Marketplace. The package also includes “TeamDisk”, a 10 GB online disk drive from the TelekomCloud. Users store their data centrally on a drive, can share data with colleagues and access data from anywhere using any device. The package is rounded off with “Symantec Endpoint Protection”. This software allows companies to protect desktop PCs and laptops against viruses, worms, Trojans and malware – with automatic security updates included. “Microsoft Exchange Online 2010®,” i.e. e-mailboxes from the TelekomCloud, can also be added on as an option. To ease entry into the cloud, the package also features a service package including free consultation from Deutsche Telekom’s cloud experts as well as a telephone setup service for all applications.
The “Hotspot Plug’n’Play“ allows companies such as small restaurants to offer their guests free Wi-Fi by sharing their existing Internet access with customers. To do so, they use the supplied Deutsche Telekom router, which is associated with the network access. The user's data traffic is routed separately from that of the line owner, i.e. usage by third parties does not pose any risk. To use the Wi-Fi, guests access the Deutsche Telekom website that appears in the browser, without having to go through any cumbersome login process. The line owner pays a fixed monthly charge for the “Hotspot Plug’n’Play” package.
Deutsche Telekom is also launching the “Industry 4.0” package at CeBIT which opens up the potential of connected industry. It enables small and mid-sized companies to network their machinery quickly and simply, and monitor production conditions. The package contains everything a machine needs to go online: hardware, SIM card with data rate plan as well as access to the “Cloud der Dinge" (Cloud of Things) online platform to record and process devices and sensor data. Deutsche Telekom hosts this platform on its highly secure servers in Germany.
The “Digitization portal” enables large SMEs to set up their own cloud app store and thus monitor the centralized administration and distribution of applications more effectively. Deutsche Telekom helps companies with integration and hosts the platform in its German data centers. Moreover, only applications that Deutsche Telekom has verified find their way onto the portal. Customers access the Business Marketplace with its solution portfolio tailored specifically to the needs of SMEs. The lineup includes, for instance, office software, applications for efficient teamwork, security software and virtual conference rooms.
Deutsche Telekom is on hand for customers with its “Digitization support” to answer questions relating to digitization, covering everything from selection of the right solutions, setup, right through to ongoing operation. This support package includes, for instance, a digitization check, the possibility of testing all applications for 30 days free of charge with no obligation as well as a setup service – over the phone or with an onsite service for Office 365. The Deutsche Telekom experts are also on hand to answer queries over the phone, via e-mail, using the online chat, and now also personally via the all-new video chat function.
