Deutsche Telekom and GE Digital are teaming up as part of a drive to tackle the industrial Internet of Things.

The partnership centres around Predix, GE Digital’s cloud platform for industrial data and data analysis, to which DT will add connectivity, IT and security capabilities.

DT will begin working with GE Digital, a subsidiary of American industrial company General Electric, this summer.

The Germany-based operator’s enterprise arm said it wanted to offer “one-stop shopping for digital innovation” in verticals such as manufacturing, transport, energy and health.

It revealed it is also working with Microsoft, Cisco, Huawei and SAP on industrial IoT initiatives.

Manufacturer "neutrality” is key to building up a platform for the industrial IoT, according to DT.

Anette Bronder, Head of T-Systems’ Digital Division, said: "The task is now to move services for digitization out of the laboratory into real-life practice.

"Nobody is capable of mastering the Internet of Things on their own.

“That's why we are investing in an ecosystem of platforms, partners and products to put us in a position to offer our business customers a full IoT end-to-end solution quickly and easily.

"The market is now beginning to gel, with customers experimenting in order to discover what's possible.

“Pilot projects will quickly become sample solutions for an industrial sector, and then turn into standard products. You simply have to get started."

T-Systems saw revenues climb 2.6 percent last year.
