Deutsche Telekom and Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML) have opened their first Internet of Things (IoT) development centre, the Telekom Open IoT Lab, in Dortmund, Germany. Scientists and experts from Telekom and Fraunhofer IML will test IoT products in the manufacturing, logistics and aviation sectors at the center. Fraunhofer scientists will provide hardware and IoT applications expertise at the centre, while Telekom experts will share the company’s IoT and cloud products.

Other companies interested in collaborating with Telekom and Fraunhofer to develop application-specific IoT prototypes can also make use of the IoT Labs. Telekom and Fraunhofer aim to help companies identify requirements and applications for IoT products before creating them by developing and manufacturing hardware, software and connectivity prototypes. The partners will concentrate on products that can later be launched on the mass-market and will initially focus on Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) technology.
