Many companies in the manufacturing industry have come to recognize the importance of digitalization and data in their businesses. As you know, companies that wish to remain competitive have to set up their production in a future-proof and flexible manner and develop solutions for the current and future challenges. And that can only be achieved through better knowledge of central production data 

Irresistible benefits

KUKA knows what its customers want. Engineers have developed intelligent robots that provide the manufacturing industry with completely new horizons. This is not just a matter of performing analyses for optimizing production cycles. It's also about providing simpler service at lower cost, and the possibility of introducing artificial intelligence in order to – perhaps – revolutionize the way we work in the future.

The IT of choice: Edge Computing

IT plays an essential role in establishing a smart factory. KUKA was searching for an experienced partner in edge computing whose managed services could be used to create a turnkey solution. KUKA chose T-Systems for its expertise in the cloud and edge computing. KUKA's robots don't require 5G edge computing – KUKA's customers need reliability and data sovereignty – and a simple EdgAIR setup with Intel hardware (based on 3rd gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors) was the perfect fit.
