Q-loud to operate Techem's data hub

- Development and operation of one of the largest IoT platforms in the energy sector
- Bespoke mix of standardisation and individual solutions
- Q-loud's IoT hub to act as Techem's data hub

Cologne, 9 September 2019 - Q-loud, the IoT subsidiary of QSC AG, is set to develop and operate what will be one of Germany's largest IoT platforms in the energy sector on behalf of the energy-related services provider Techem.

"Once the proof of concept was successfully implemented, we immediately opted for Q-loud's solution, which is set up to handle large volumes of data and meets our requirements in terms of hardware and software. When it comes to IoT, the competence Q-loud can offer is absolutely unique in the market", comments Frank Pawellek, Head of Application Development at Techem. "The system will support us in becoming the preferred digital partner to the real estate sector." As one of Germany's largest providers of building energy-related services, Techem will in future rely even more closely on networked appliance infrastructure and data-based solutions. These will focus on energy saving, CO2 avoidance and more efficient building operating processes. Today, Techem's solutions already enable around 7 million tonnes of CO2 to be avoided each year.

Highly scalable and individually adaptable IoT platform

Looking ahead, Q-loud's IoT hub should act as the sole data hub providing information for Techem's different cloud environments and decentralised systems. The modular structure of the IoT hub is based on proven technologies, is highly scalable and can also be adapted to individual customer requirements. The IoT hub will be operated by Q-loud in line with the utmost security standards and data protection requirements.

"We are delighted by this order from Techem. It shows that our IoT hub meets all requirements in highly scalable IoT ecosystems, particularly in terms of resilience and availability", explains Dr. Myriam Jahn, CEO of Q-loud GmbH, and adds: "The ability to develop bespoke customer solutions on this basis is also a key benefit for SMEs". Together with QSC AG, the IoT hub at Q-loud GmbH offers an exemplary solution for challenges in industrial IoT. It prevents vendor lock-in and its transparent pricing is based on the number of devices connected. Not only that, it supports multi-cloud environments and edge computing and can also securely integrate data collected directly at the end appliance.
