Bosch launches IoT software solutions on Huawei Cloud

Collaboration in strategically relevant Chinese growth market

Stuttgart / Shanghai – Today at HUAWEI CONNECT 2018, Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, and Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, announced a partnership to accelerate the development of the internet of things (IoT) in China. The collaborative agreement will see the two partners make Bosch’s IoT Suite software services available in China on Huawei Cloud.

“The demand for IoT solutions in China is rising. The partnership between Bosch and Huawei Cloud marks a decisive step for Bosch in one of the fastest growing IoT markets in Asia,” said Dr. Stefan Ferber, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bosch. The company expects China’s market for IoT platforms to grow by close to 70 percent over the coming years. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with Huawei Cloud to offer cloud-based IoT services providing various functions needed to connect devices, users, and businesses. I am confident that by joining forces our companies will advance the development of the internet of things in China.”

The Bosch software platform connects web-enabled objects to facilitate data sharing across a multitude of digital services and business models. The first service made available to Chinese consumers via Huawei Cloud will be the Bosch IoT Remote Manager – a service for managing and controlling gateways, sensors, and devices. Additional services of the Bosch IoT Suite will follow in 2019.

With offices in Shanghai and Nanjing, Bosch Software Innovations has been active in China since 2012 and has successfully implemented IoT projects ranging from Industry 4.0 to connected transportation. A leading Chinese automaker has chosen to deploy the Bosch IoT Suite on Huawei Cloud for updating its vehicles’ firmware over the air (FOTA). The solution is expected to be rolled out to millions of connected cars in China over the coming years.

“Bosch Software Innovations is one of the global leaders in IoT, providing cutting-edge IoT solutions and services,” said Mr. Zheng Yelai, the vice president of Huawei and president of Huawei Cloud BU. “Huawei Cloud is a fast growing global cloud provider, and has committed to cultivating this fertile environment for its partners. With the technical excellence of Bosch IoT Suite, and the reliable infrastructure services by Huawei Cloud, we will provide more intelligent IoT solutions to smart cities, enterprises, families, and individuals.”

Most significantly, for consumers in China, the world’s largest automotive market, the Bosch IoT Suite enables vital services such as the Vehicle Management Solution, which is available locally on Huawei Cloud. This solution connects vehicles throughout their service life, providing the technological foundation for cloud-based services such as predictive diagnostics and over-the-air software updates. The software provides a secure communication interface between the vehicle, the cloud, and the services. Data management enables vehicle manufacturers and fleet managers to organize vehicle data, analyze it, and keep the vehicle software continuously updated.

Following this announcement, Bosch and Huawei intend to develop an integrated end-to-end IoT offering. Huawei is developing IoT hardware gateways that will be pre-configured with Bosch IoT Gateway software and managed through the Bosch IoT Remote Manager to run on Huawei Cloud. This close integration will provide customers with a more complete IoT solution that is easier to deploy and manage.

Bosch and Huawei share a similar vision for the IoT, based on open source and industry standards and a commitment to building strong ecosystems in the domains of connected vehicles, manufacturing, homes, cities, and agriculture. Both companies are also members of the Eclipse Foundation and serve in leadership roles within the Industrial Internet Consortium and the OSGi Alliance.
