Customer Gateway: Connected X

Customer Gateway: Connected X



 

Connected X consolidates all the activities that are aimed at developing gateways as the control and interaction points for its users' personal and working lives. In turn, they make it possible to offer new value-added services, some of which are being realized in cooperation with third-party providers.

The development of the next generation of customer gateways focuses on open router architecture for a variety of application scenarios. This open router platform will make it possible to execute new services, features and network configurations flexibly and implement them quickly on a modular basis. The application scenarios not only cover all areas of connected life, but also open further opportunities in the areas of network security, data privacy and infrastructures such as TeraStream.

The Health@Home solutions will supplement the Smart Home service portfolio in future: innovative applications such as improved situation detection and intelligent alert management will not only make it possible for older people to live independently in their own four walls as long as possible, but will also improve personal safety for everyone. Moreover, the ongoing expansion of a strong partner ecosystem promotes the introduction of highly attractive communication, health care and household services.

Wallet Evolution and Open Wallet Across Devices are projects for universal mPayment solutions that will promote growth in the mCommerce market, and they are based on a multidevice "Open Wallet" ecosystem with payment, ticket and ID management based on the most modern web technologies.

The development of smart M2M automation and management services, such as optimized transport and logistics and telematics services, combined with location-based data and its incorporation in various areas of industry, such as transportation and agriculture, are the subject of Industry 4.0.

 Customer Gateway

 

Connected X refers to all activities for preserving the critical control point at the customer premise, attracting partners and introducing further value-adding services beyond providing mere interconnection. The project known as Next Generation Customer Gateways involves the development of next-generation customer gateways using a platform for a modular and flexible router architecture for various application scenarios (e.g., TeraStream, Bot Net Protection, 'Qivicon-lite' via Router, Microkernel for Customer Gateways).

Solutions with improved situation detection and intelligent alarm management are being developed to enhance the Smart Home service portfolio for families and the elderly. Health @ Home is also striving to set up a strong partner ecosystem (Smart Home/ Health, etc.) for extremely attractive services. Wallet Evolution and Open Wallet Across Devices are projects for universal mPayment solutions that will promote growth in the mCommerce market, and they are based on a multidevice "Open Wallet" ecosystem with payment, ticket and ID management. Projects such as Telekom Micro Smart Grid and Industry 4.0, as well as collaboration initiatives with Hamburg Port Authority, Claas, Lekkerland and Transporeon, are promoting the development of intelligent M2M automation and management services, for example, traffic and logistics optimization, telematics services combined with on-site data and the application transfer of Industry 4.0.
