Through the “Strategic Alliance Program”, Konica Minolta is partnering with other leading technology companies globally to identify synergies and value-adding products, services and solutions to drive mutually beneficial new business opportunities.
The first partner to join the Konica Minolta “Strategic Alliance Program”, signing a memorandum of understanding is Deutsche Telekom, to jointly develop and market innovative technology solutions.
Alliance partnerships will provide joint clients with standardised and scalable solutions built around the best of each partner’s technology and expertise. The partnership with Deutsche Telekom provides mutual value elements to both companies and is the first of several strategic partnerships that will be announced in the near future.
The collaboration starts with bringing together Konica Minolta’s wearable augmented reality (AR) solution AIRe Lens for industrial applications with advanced mobile network services from Deutsche Telekom. It enables the smart glasses to be enhanced with mobile connectivity allowing for use in remote applications. This can be utilised on public mobile networks or industrial campus networks based on LTE and 5G NR. An embedded connectivity module will allow seamless integration of advanced mobile connectivity to the smart glasses. Together, both Konica Minolta and Deutsche Telekom will further evaluate and collaborate on this pioneering solution.
