campus network program 2021


The Program

T-Systems and Deutsche Telekom shape the digital future of their customers. Together, acting as an integrator, telco expert and trusted advisor, customers appreciate their smart solutions which are scalable and sustainable – in Automotive, Logistics, Retail, Healthcare, and many other industries. 

For this reason, we are very pleased to announce that we are partnering up with T-Systems to jointly search partners for a new topic area called “Campus Edge”!

The age of data and advancing digital technology brings new innovations and improvements but also confronts the customers with new challenges. To pave the way for its customer digital roadmap and to successfully overcome these challenges, T-Systems built a powerful ecosystem for Edge Computing in combination with Telekom 5G Campus Networks called Campus Edge to provide the right solutions. Additionally, T-Systems works together with Hyperscalers such as AWS, integrating with their ecosystems.

Now, T-Systems is looking for Best-in-Class Business solutions representing the benefits of Edge Computing and 5G Campus Networks. We are inviting solution providers to become T-Systems partners and join their ecosystem.

Customers benefit from an end-to-end ecosystem out of a trusted hand – scalable, efficient, and able to grow with their future needs.

Partners benefit from T-Systems capability to embed their solutions into a holistic ecosystem and helping them to scale their offering. Depending on the kind of partnership T-Systems will potentially merge go-to-market forces with partners, integrate solutions into their framework or cover of maintenance and support.

As part of this program and potential joint go-to-market, we will invite partners to demonstrate their capabilities in demo centers of T-Systems and participate in marketing events.

Let us meet and discuss how we can together shape the digital future!

If you are interested, just submit your application!

Challenge & benefits for you

With this program we are inviting every company which believes its solutions fit the benefits of Edge Computing and 5G Campus Networks to get in touch with us.

However, we are especially interested to find partners which contribute to the ‘Computer Vision Challenge’.

Challenge description:

Computer Vision among Artificial Intelligence is one of the key drivers for digitalization we are discussing with our clients. The potential of this technology is tremendous: whether to automate, make existing processes more reliable or make new use cases even possible.

To leverage the full potential of Computer Vision, we ever more often find the best solution with specialized providers which have the best-in-class solution for specific use cases. But often they seek for a broader market access and a partner, to be able to provide an optimal integration of their product into a customer environment.

At T-Systems we have developed a Computer Vision Framework that allows us to integrate our own solutions alongside with partner solutions in a very convenient way.

With this challenge we are looking for partners providing standalone Computer Vision solutions, services or models to join our Computer Vision framework.

Solutions which support the following use cases are being sought:

In Public Areas:

  • People Counting
  • People Traffic, Movement & Time of Stay
  • Crowd density & distancing calculations
  • Public Transport (passenger counting, searing capacity)
  • Detection of an emergency situation
  • Traffic Management (Traffic Flow, Traffic Jams, Vehicle Counting)

In Logistics:

  • Automated Inventory Process

In Manufacturing (& Health):

  • Spare parts management
  • Automated Quality control (& Health)
  • Process  control (& Health)
  • Smart assembly

In Retail:

  • Person Attributes and Demographics
  • Traffic, Movement & Time of Stay
  • Customer Flow Analysis

Your solution does not fit any listed use case?

In this case you should still send us your application when you are convinced that your solution offers a significant added value to customers in combination with edge computing and/or campus network infrastructure.

What’s in it for you:

  • Chance to benefit from Magenta sales activities and to reach out to our business customers
  • Opportunity to test your solution on 5G Campus Network infrastructure
  • Access to experts regarding Campus Networks as well as Edge Computing
  • Possibility to integrate your solution within the product portfolio of DT and to commercialize them by means of the DT Sales Channels

We are looking for:

  • Startups or medium sized companies willing to adapt their solutions for 5G Campus Networks and T-Systems CV Framework based on its Edge Computing platform (if necessary).
  • Highly innovative solutions especially focusing on one of the CV use cases above that make use of the advantages of campus networks, e.g. low latency, high bandwidth, reliable and secure connectivity as well as of the edge computing capabilities, e.g. high performance, low latency and secure onsite computing  
  • Companies that already offer their products on the market and that are – in a commercial and personal regard – capable of positioning their products into the market in the scope of a partnership with DT
  • Long-term Partnerships

Campus networks are custom mobile networks for the industry. They allow machines and processes to connect with each other without any delays.

A campus network is a combination of the public mobile network and a private network. Both networks jointly cover a defined company site, a university, or individual buildings. The private network cannot be accessed from outside. That means the campus network’s capacity can only be used by the customer at any time. Another reliable feature of campus network’s is the period within which the network reacts, which is called the latency or response time in the network. That allows machines to communicate with one another or with a data center, for example, without delays. Thanks to the low latency, even vehicles can move across company premises autonomously using sensors.

As a result of the provision of the campus networks together with the public mobile network in parallel, external applications are also possible on the campus with no problems. One example is remote maintenance of machines performed by manufacturers.
Additional advantages of campus networks: High level of data security, fast data transfer, and high reliability. Qualities that are essential for digitalized production sites.
