The results of an industrial M2M collaboration announced last week by NetComm Wireless, Deutsche Telekom and Cumulocity where on show this week at the Hannover Fair. Australian company NetComm Wireless was showing wireless M2M devices designed to manage connected industry applications including Deutsche Telekom's Industry 4.0 offering, which comprises the recently launched Cloud der Dinge platform based on Cumulocity's IoT software.
NetComm Wireless demonstrated how the NTC-6200 3G M2M Router Plus can provide the connection and communications component of Deutsche Telekom's end-to-end digitalisation of the industrial value chain.
Attendees at the show saw how the NTC-6200 can be integrated to increase business efficiencies and reduce maintenance costs through the monitoring and management of remote assets, such as sewing machines that are remotely monitored and programmable.
"Value chains are undergoing a significant digital transformation in Germany and globally, and we are pleased to demonstrate the critical role that our wireless M2M devices play in what has been named the fourth industrial revolution," said David Stewart, CEO and managing director of NetComm Wireless. “Our industrial M2M devices support a scalable transition towards a digitalised future and we are pleased to work with Deutsche Telekom and Cumulocity on the delivery of a solution that brings the benefits of product, project and process digitalisation to businesses of all sizes.”
NetComm Wireless' 3G M2M devices were integrated to enable the remote management of industrial machines and other industrial M2M applications that were successfully shown at Cebit this year through Cumulocity and Deutsche Telekom. Deutsche Telekom maintains its top three ranking on Machina Research's M2M Leaderboard 2014, with an 8.6% share of global M2M mobile network operator expected revenue by 2022.
