DOCOMO and DOCOMO ASIA to Provide IoT Solution for YANMAR's SMARTASSIST System in India


TOKYO, Jan 21, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - NTT DOCOMO, INC. and NTT DOCOMO ASIA Pte. Ltd. announced today that they will provide an IoT solution for YANMAR's SMARTASSIST, a cutting-edge remote management system for IoT-enabled machinery due to be launched in India this spring. This solution is a part of DOCOMO's Globiot™ global IoT initiative, which provides global connectivity and operational support and consulting to Japanese enterprises with global IoT deployments.

Utilizing a GPS antenna and a communication terminal, SMARTASSIST collects extensive data on operating conditions in real-time. This data is then used to manage and maintain machines and optimize their operating conditions, averting costly breakdowns. This labor-saving technology greatly facilitates machine management and contributes to a reduction in the cost of machines over their life cycle.

In addition to complying with India's anticipated data roaming regulations, companies are required to acquire certification for any communication equipment they utilize in the country. It can be challenging for foreign companies to obtain information on local regulations and arrange local connectivity to enable the deployment of their IoT services in the country.

YANMAR's adoption of DOCOMO's Globiot™ one-stop solution will help address these challenges by having advices on local network coverage, compliance with local regulations and the acquisition of certification. It will also help with the selection of appropriate local mobile network providers as well as provide support and troubleshooting via the Globiot Service Desk.

Going forward, DOCOMO and DOCOMO ASIA expect to further collaborate with cutting-edge companies by introducing new IoT solutions that will help enterprise customers raise their productivity and create new values.

This IoT solution will be showcased at DOCOMO Open House 2020 in Tokyo on January 23-24, 2020.
