Fujitsu Makes Key IoT Announcements in Cloud and Tracking


The Fujitsu Cloud Internet of Things (IoT) Platform is now available in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa regions as part of the Cloud Service K5 ecosystem, according to a recent announcement.

Fujitsu said it developed its Cloud IoT Platform to address the management of IoT deployments, which can be complex, time-consuming and can often require specialist skills. The platform is designed to enable customers to remove complexity and benefit from a comprehensive, plug and play cloud-based solution to integrate selected IoT data into mainstream business processes.

A set of APIs allows the collection and compilation of data from multiple sources, and Fujitsu provides a dashboard for managing data from IoT devices. Consequently, customers can deploy an IoT platform customized to their exact needs, with effortless expansion to accommodate new devices and data volumes. The pay-as-you-consume pricing structure also makes financial planning easier and eliminates the need for upfront capital expenditure.

“Very few organizations buy IoT as a technology. Customers want solutions to address specific business needs, or to find a way of transforming their processes,” said Conway Kosi, SVP and Head of Managed Infrastructure Services, Fujitsu EMEIA. “In providing a complete, managed IoT solution, Fujitsu enables them to jump straight to reaping the benefits of an IoT deployment, leapfrogging complex and time-consuming planning and implementation stages as they integrate the data. Fujitsu's comprehensive Managed Services portfolio allows us to partner with our customers, giving them the opportunity to focus on the end result instead of becoming overwhelmed with the process - enabling them to leverage the valuable IoT data they have generated as they focus on transforming their businesses.”

In other Fujitsu news, BearCom, North America’s largest provider of two-way radio wireless communications equipment and solutions, will deploy Fujitsu’s GlobeRanger IoT tracking solution to manage and track its extensive portfolio of rental wireless devices that are used to support many of the largest events in the country.

The goal is to dramatically simplify the process of managing BearCom’s about 25,000 rental wireless devices. These assets, which include high performance digital radios, are used by a broad cross section of customers including public safety professionals, at large-scale, high-profile events like the Academy Awards and Coachella.

“The beauty of IoT technologies is their ability to be applied to a broad range of existing processes,” said Nabil Lodey, Head of GlobeRanger. “In this case, the asset management process doesn't change - each step is just completed almost instantaneously and with minimal effort. The key to success is working closely with our customers' operational teams to fully understand their processes and the business challenges they want to address, and then working together to co-create and implement solutions that deliver real and measurable results and business value.”
