DT’s plan for a more connected workforce hinges on integrating workers around the DACH region who presently lack access to high-speed internet at their job site, with Zoom X. Vuzix AR smart glasses provide the optimal hardware complement for DT customers to leverage their 5G network for expanded enterprise use. Combined with Zoom X, a highly secure video software solution specially configured for DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) users, DT and Vuzix create a perfectly balanced platform for accessing new networking opportunities. This easy to use and highly accessible combination of connectivity, software and hardware will bring previously unrealized benefits to connected workers in industries including retail and logistics, manufacturing, field services, healthcare, transportation and energy. Such a solution allows connected workers to significantly enhance their productivity, improve response times, reduce equipment downtime, and work safer.
“DT is dedicated to providing a complete set of end-to-end telecom services for the connected worker. Vuzix hardware and consultative approach to customer use cases, along with Zoom X’s reach and extensive capabilities, now set the stage for a new era of innovation,” said Thomas Novotny, CTO of Innovation at Deutsche Telekom Business Solution.
“We are honored to support DT with our extensive industry experience and customer-focused AR smart glasses solutions. We’re proud to be part of this powerful trio of companies along with Zoom, to deliver a connected digital ecosystem to enterprise customers in DACH and around the world,” said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. “We look forward to continuous innovation together as we empower a new generation of connected workers.”
