REALWEAR ANNOUNCES DEUTSCHE TELEKOM PARTNERSHIP TO DRIVE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION TO THE FRONTLINE
CCI opens its doors to industry customers wanting a demonstration of the show case combining RealWear’s HMT-1 and Deutsche Telekom’s Campus network, beginning in July
July 7, 2020 – Amsterdam, NL – RealWear, Inc, a global leader of hands-free head-mounted tablets for digital transformation in industry, today announced a new partnership with Deutsche Telekom as part of its 5G Campus Network strategy for smart factories for digital transformation.
Through the use of the RealWear headsets within 5G Campus Network-enabled sites, industrial workers will have seamless voice-activated access to data from across different systems, such as production planning, suppliers, scheduling and dispatching, saving time and keeping plants running smoothly.
Deutsche Telekom’s 5G Campus Networks portfolio comprises different offers for enterprise customers. Either as a combination of public and private mobile network, or a 5G private only network for a defined local “campus”, such as an office building or factory. These campuses offer extremely high bandwidth, short latencies and improved availability and data security, which are very attractive for industrial companies looking to bring digital transformation to the frontline.
“Strong partnerships are a key part of Deutsche Telekom’s integrated solution approach to provide end-to-end Campus Network offerings to our industrial customers,” says Antje Williams, SVP 5G Campus Networks, Deutsche Telekom. “RealWear, member of our 5G partner ecosystem, contributes with specialist know-how in the field of industry 4.0. I look forward to intensive collaboration to co-create and integrate new solutions together.”
“Our customers are dramatically accelerating their digital transformation efforts to protect their workforce and ensure business continuity in this new normal,” says Sanjay Jhawar, President, RealWear. “Beginning in July, we invite our European industrial customers to the CCI to see the possibilities enabled by 5G and industrial head-mounted devices.”
Industrial and field workers are often required to work in no or low bandwidth areas, making remote service support challenging.
The need for digital transformation within the industrial setting has accelerated after the COVID-19 pandemic began, now making the network characteristics of 5G technologies critical infrastructure for business continuity. Combining RealWear headsets and Deutsche Telekom’s reliable 5G technology will enable organizations, such as manufacturing and field services, to increase insight, productivity, flexibility and sustainability across their organizations.
The Center Connected Industry (CCI) at the RWTH Aachen Campus, a technology test field in Germany, is equipped to drive the vision of networking companies, machines, systems and users in a fast, simple and robust manner. Beginning July 7th, Deutsche Telekom alongside RealWear and oculavis GmbH will begin showcasing within the CCI’s “knowledge transfer factory” enabling customers to explore and experience use cases and accelerate innovation.
