GE will connect its machines and devices to Verizon’s machine-to-machine connectivity and cloud platforms under the partnership, the companies said Thursday.
“We look forward to using the power of our network and cloud platforms to enhance our long-standing relationship with GE so that together we can create new business models across the Industrial Internet to meet the increasingly complex demands of customers,” said Mark Bartolomeo, head of IoT connected solutions at Verizon.
The team will provide services for remote monitoring, diagnostics and maintenance within GE’s Predix platform.
GE and Verizon also plan to develop a single global subscriber identity module.
“The rise of the Industrial Internet is taking place through the convergence of advanced computing, analytics, sensors and new levels of connectivity,” said Bill Ruh, vice president and corporate officer of GE Software.
