Founded in 2000, T-Systems is a German global IT services and consulting company. It is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, one of the world's leading integrated telecommunications companies with more than 184 million mobile customers across 50 countries.
T-Systems recently unveiled EdgAIR, an Edge Computing platform that delivers low latency for IoT applications at enterprise facilities. Edge Computing brings computation and data storage closer to the location where the data is generated in order to reduce latency, maintain network reliability, save bandwidth and comply with data security regulations.
This enables companies to use innovative, real-time applications in production, logistics and retail, and includes automated, guided vehicles and augmented and full virtual reality. The EdgAIR platform works directly on-site, which means that the data is not sent via a central computer center or Cloud.
Supermicro, partnered with Intel®, offers a range of highly-configurable and powerful servers optimized for Intelligent Edge computing, and is working with T-Systems to develop an EdgAIR solution.
