What is the challenge? IoT developers have difficulties finding the right power solution for their devices.
Until recently, storage costs, bandwidth, and processing power restricted the use of digital twins for enterprises. With the IoT, however, the digital twin is now much more cost-effective to implement, and all indications seem to predict we’re on the cusp of a digital twin technology explosion. One of the earliest adopter of this technology is Deutsche Telekom, which launched its IoT Solution Optimizer tool in early 2019.
With this scalable tool, global businesses can assemble a virtual twin of the IoT service they want to deploy. The IoT Solution Optimizer helps model hundreds of potential hardware and applications scenarios within seconds answering many critical questions, such as what battery technology to use. This helps enterprises choose the right solution for their needs, optimize their designs to maximize their return on investment, and shorten time-to-market. The tool streamlines the onboarding experience with a single, unified, cloud-based package.
What is the solution? Saft lithium cells.
In many cases, the effectiveness of each IoT solution is directly related to the quality of the battery. Some technologies cannot power up the chipsets in all necessary operating temperatures or support the required pulse currents. If the lifespan of the device is too short, the investment suffers. To avoid this, Deutsche Telekom opted to have Saft’s range of lithium batteries pre-integrated into the IoT Solution Optimizer’s product shelf. As a result, it is much easier for IoT developers to select a correct match for their configuration.
