Orange Business Services (OBS) has teamed up with Siemens to launch a new set of IoT tools for industrial companies.
The suite of solutions will aim to help the sector use connectivity to optimise their operations and analyse their data.
Customers will be able to access a range of pre-packaged offerings such as asset tracking as well as customised solutions and applications.
Alongside connectivity products including cellular and LPWA, OBS will contribute Datavenue, its end-to-end management service for enterprises looking to launch IoT products.
OBS will also provide consultancy, systems integration and app development services.
Meanwhile, Siemens will add its IoT operating system MindSphere, which stores operational data and provides it to users through digital applications.
Olivier Ondet, SVP for IoT and Analytics, Orange Business Services, said: “By combining our strengths we are providing industrial enterprises with new opportunities to exploit their data and unleash the power of IoT to drive significant competitive advantage.”
Kai Brasche, VP of MindSphere Partner Management EMEA at Siemens, said: “Orange Business Services supports Siemens’ MindSphere Global Ecosystem with its leading IT, system integration and application development expertise, ultimately benefiting our joint customers.
“The global IoT connectivity offering from Orange supports requirements where digital products and digital processes can be integrated in our MindSphere platform. Our customers will now benefit from worldwide coverage, which supports new business models and scalability.”
OBS has signed several new customers for Datavenue over the last 12 months including an Italian bike security start-up in September, a Finnish wearables company in August and a Finnish cargo-handling company in December.
