Telstra, Software AG sign multi-million dollar IoT deal Featured


Telstra has signed a new multi-million-dollar, three-year contract with Software AG to expand the functionality of its IoT offerings with Software AG’s Apama Advanced Streaming Analytics and Machine Learning solutions.

The new agreement will see Telstra expand the functionality of its IoT offerings with Software AG’s Apama Advanced Streaming Analytics and Machine Learning solutions.

Telstra says it has expanded the core Cumulocity IoT platform with new advanced IoT Solutions, and with further co-development, additional features are expected to market in 2020,

Software AG and Telstra co-developed IoT Water Management platform, announced last year, combines the advanced functionality of Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform with Telstra’s NB-IoT network.

Software AG says Telstra has been extensively involved in the development process and now offers Cumulocity IoT Solution Accelerator for Water Management for sale in Australia as part of its complete end-to-end water utility solution.

Tony Drewitt, Head of IoT ANZ, Software AG, said: “We are now delivering real-time water management to the field, which provides utility providers with greater operational insights, allowing them to make informed decisions about their network that can result in significant savings.

“Our water management platform can save water through leak detection but also reduce energy consumption and the carbon footprint of a water utility which is key to reducing the impacts of climate change.”

“The Telstra IoT Water Solution combines Cumulocity with Australia’s largest IoT network and our NB-IOT enabled Captis devices to present a really exciting opportunity for Australian water utilities,” Gerhard Loots, Global IoT Solutions Executive, Telstra,

“It uses advanced analytics to detect leaks and pressure drops in water infrastructure and provide more detailed water consumption information to the benefit of the utility and the end customer."
