T-Systems, a German provider of IT solutions and services, has developed a Web-based radio frequency identification technology (RFID) and Internet of Things (IoT) platform, with sensors that allow users to collect data such as location, humidity, temperature, movement, gases in the air, shock and other environmental variations. The solution works with a smart device from Roambee, a Silicon Valley company from which T-Systems has become a $3.1 million investment partner for Deutsche Telekom Strategic Investments.

Large companies in Brazil are already testing the T-Systems platform with the Roambee device, which can be configured with the necessary sensors for each application—for example, with GPS for location tracking and GPRS for communication. The companies piloting the technology in Brazil have not yet authorized the release of their names, but they work in the mining and metallurgy areas.

The device acts as a beacon, periodically emitting signals with sensor information, which allows remote tracking and decision-making. "The longer the interval between Roambee's signals, the longer the battery life of the device," said Luis Fernando Tadei, T-Systems Brazil's head of digital transformation.

To meet a wide range of segments, the solution allows, for example, the monitoring of the temperatures and locations of sensitive medicines during transportation, using real-time data and alerts that allow actions in case of need. Roambee will provide software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications that include wireless portable sensors and cloud-based software, robust reporting and predictive analytics. The solution will be delivered from a scalable T-Systems platform, providing access to a global infrastructure of secure data centers and cloud solutions from its partner ecosystem.
