Ericsson and PTC Speed App and Service Development for Cellular IoT

By Ken Briodagh May 16, 2018

Ericsson has set out to make IoT development easier through building collaborative ecosystems, according to a recent announcement. The Ericsson IoT ecosystem reportedly has expanded to include PTC’s ThingWorx, a recent release said, including advanced tools for developing IoT applications and augmented reality (AR) experiences.

With the addition of ThingWorx to the Ericsson IoT Accelerator cloud-based platform, the wider IoT market will now have access to applications & AR experience development tools offered by PTC.

“This combination is good for ecosystem partners as well as customers, bringing together the strong brand and presence of Ericsson and its related solutions in the telco market, with PTC’s strengths and solutions in industrial verticals,“ said Tiago Goncalves, CEO, Innowave. “We have worked with both parties and see this as a complementary partnership.”

Hundreds of customers, and more than 250 partners, have selected PTC’s ThingWorx as their industrial innovation platform. System integrators have built IoT competency centers around the ThingWorx technology, and 300,000 developers use ThingWorx to develop their own solutions.

“The Ericsson-PTC collaboration is very complementary given Ericsson’s strengths in handling connectivity at scale and PTC’s ThingWorx’s rapid application enablement platform,” shared Kari Terho, Head of Smart Factory Management, Elisa Industrial IoT, a telecommunications, ICT and digital service company based in Finland.

Ericsson IoT Accelerator removes the complexity from developing and launching IoT applications, which is leading to the rapid diversification of industry-specific solutions. With a cohesive platform to develop, market and manage IoT solutions, Ericsson is moving ever closer to the goal of creating a global IoT ecosystem.

“A collaborative ecosystem is key to IoT development and increasing cellular IoT adoption. We look forward to continuing to work with PTC to make it easier and faster to launch IoT services, said Jeff Travers, Head of IoT, Ericsson.
