Deutsche Telekom is making big strides towards achieving its vision of becoming global leader in Connected Life and Work at Mobile World Congress this year with a series of announcements.
Deutsche Telekom’s vision of Connected Life and Work will see the same services seamlessly and easily flow from consumers’ mobiles to their PC to their TVs as content and services move onto web-based platforms and broadband becomes faster and more effective at home and on the move.
“There are many components to our strategy of delivering the experience of Connected Life and Work to our customers. Today we are announcing solid progress in each of them,” comments Guido Kerkhoff, member of the board of management at Deutsche Telekom. “By evolving our network, service and product offering simultaneously we ensure that the overall experience for our customers is the best the industry has to offer.”
To achieve this reality; Deutsche Telekom is making a series of evolutionary upgrades to its 3G network, achieving speeds of up to 42Mbp/s via HSPA+ technology. At Mobile World Congress, a Next Generation Mobile Network (NGMN) showcase powered by Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology will see the Deutsche Telekom Marquee connected with sites in Bonn and a mobile NGMN unit in Innsbruck, bringing to life the capabilities of the NGMN for delivering services including high-definition (HD) video streaming, TelePresence and superfast file uploads and downloads.
Deutsche Telekom is also expanding Connected Life and Work services to other European countries in 2010. With these services Deutsche Telekom is responding to the evolving customer demand of having access to everything that matters to them regardless of place and time. Services are intuitive to use with consistent look and feel on mobile, PC and TV enabling customers to store, access and share personal communication data and media files at home and on the move. Deutsche Telekom is also announcing a range of devices to allow its customers to engage with this vision at every end of the market – including the high-end Samsung Wave S8500 and the affordable and compact Android-powered T-Mobile Pulse Mini.
Mobile applications are a key part of the Connected Life and Work experience and Deutsche Telekom is working to bring its customers the widest choice possible. It today announces its intention to partner leading applications stores to deliver a T-Mobile dedicated channel with specific recommendations for its customers and to provide a simplified operator billing platform, allowing customers to charge their content and application payments onto their mobile phone bill instead of paying via credit card.
Deutsche Telekom also announced its support for a cross-industry initiative, the Wholesale Applications Community, which aims to unite the fragmented applications marketplaces to create an open industry platform that benefits everybody – from applications developers and network operators to mobile phone users themselves. As a founding member of this initiative Deutsche Telekom strongly supports the alliance’s goal to create a wholesale applications ecosystem that will establish a simple route to market for developers to deliver the latest innovative services to the widest possible base of customers around the world.
Deutsche Telekom is making strong progress with its vision for Connected Work. It is launching its new International Competence Center for Machine-to-Machine communications (M2M), a technology Deutsche Telekom already provides to its customers in nine different industries. Tasked with driving R&D through close collaboration with Deutsche Telekom’s partners and customers, the new centre will draw on talent from across Deutsche Telekom’s global organization to drive the evolution of the company’s M2M product offering in these industries and beyond.
