The future market of intelligent networks
Investments in mobile and broadband fixed-line networks create the foundation for a connected economy and society. T-Systems is focusing its innovations on the growth areas of intelligent networks, largely for the automotive, healthcare and energy sectors.
- The Daimler automotive group, for example, relies on T-Systems for car-based online services, such as the communications infrastructure for the Command Online multimedia system in Mercedes Benz vehicles. This system allows the driver and passengers to use applications through the Internet while in the vehicle, including real-time traffic information, mobility services, personal radio and access to social networks.
- In the healthcare sector, more and more patients, doctors, health insurance providers and other important players are getting connected. This streamlines processes and cuts costs, for example, by coordinating the care and treatment of patients across hospital doctors, family doctors, specialised therapists and rehabilitation centres. Hospital doctors, for instance, can use tablet PCs to access patient data on their daily rounds, in the accident and emergency unit and even in the operating room. Health insurance providers cut overhead costs by using electronic cost estimates instead of paper. And telemedicine can help mitigate shortages of medical staff in rural areas. Patients can record their vital signs on their smartphones at home and forward them to their doctor.
- In the strategic business area of energy, T-Systems consolidates the relevant expertise for the energy sector and already works with 30 percent of the largest energy providers around the world. In this area, the Telekom subsidiary offers flexible, modular solutions and services to meet the energy sector's current market needs. T-Systems combines its extensive expertise from telecommunications and information technology to design and deliver solutions for IT areas such as smart metering, smart grids, energy efficiency and the connected home.
