Fujitsu opens environment for internet of things testing
The new initiative will allow partners and customers to test internet of things applications at no cost
Japanese company Fujitsu has set up an environment at the firm’s Digital Transformation Center (DTC) in Tokyo, a co-creative workshop space for testing internet of things systems combining IoT-related products and services from Fujitsu and its partner companies.
Customers and application-development vendors can run connectivity tests on their applications at no cost, using the Fujitsu’s IoT Testing Environment. The firm added that customers and partner companies developing applications for the IoT can use this environment to test connectivity to prototype systems using real-world hardware without the need to provide their own cloud or network environment or sensor devices.
The Japanese company has also made available IoT Solution IoT Business Support Services to provide integrated support for the processes of planning, prototype testing, and then designing, building, and operating multivendor IoT systems.
“Fujitsu began organizing IoT co-creation workshops using design approach methods at the DTC, to help companies conceptualize ways to expand their businesses or streamline their operational processes through the IoT, and to carry out the measures needed to turn those concepts into reality,” the firm said in a release.
“Fujitsu conducts these workshops for companies that have already decided on goals for IoT, to help them achieve their goals more quickly, and provides integrated support services for planning, deploying, and operating total IoT solutions, which include everything from sensor devices to applications.”
