Orange Business Services and Siemens have decided to drive the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the industrial sector by simplifying integration and promoting IoT innovation.
As part of the IoT agreement, Orange Business Services and Siemens will develop solutions around asset tracking and asset monitoring to optimize the supply chain and improve efficiencies. They will develop digitally enhanced products to increase customer satisfaction and create new business models.
Orange Business and Siemens will assist their business clients to connect their machines and physical infrastructure to the digital world. Advanced analytics and digital services will help them increase productivity and efficiency across their business.
The IoT alliance is built around Siemens’ MindSphere, the cloud-based open IoT operating system, and Datavenue, the Orange IoT and data analytics modular offering.
Orange Business Services will connect systems and objects via MindSphere. Customers have the option of pre-packaged offerings such as asset tracking, or customized solutions and applications.
Orange Business Services will provide connectivity components from Datavenue, including cellular and Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks. Other Datavenue components will follow.
Olivier Ondet, senior vice president, IoT and Analytics, Orange Business Services; and Kai Brasche, vice president, MindSphere Partner Management EMEA at Siemens, were part of the IoT partnership that will initially focus on Europe, starting with solutions to be rolled out in Germany and Austria.
Orange Business Services and Siemens will be present on the MindSphere booth at Hannover Messe, Hall 9, stand D35. Hannover Messe is the world’s leading industrial technology trade fair, April 23-27, 2018.
