IoT Solution Optimizer

The Swiss Army Knife for IoT Applications

From asset tracking and building management to machine monitoring, the IoT Solution Optimizer makes it easier for companies to plan their IoT projects. Is my hardware suitable? Does my application perform well on different networks? Which protocol do I need? And how can I increase my efficiency? Step by step, the IoT Solution Optimizer leads to an individual performance analysis and identifies potential optimization. This saves time and money, because costly and time-consuming tests are no longer required. The extensive data portfolio of Telekom and selected partners helps you to set up, check and optimize suitable solutions in just a few minutes. Whether it's customer design or a standard solution from Telekom's IoT offering – with just a few clicks you can calculate the efficiency of your own use case.

Looking for a standard product offering instead? You may conveniently select from the numerous devices integrated into the service’s solution shelves. Discover communications- and power-efficient IoT solutions already available to solve your business needs.


Increase profitability

Deutsche Telekom and its partners connect enterprises to the opportunities of today and tomorrow by bridging the supplier fragmentation of the IoT industry and combining the expertise of various segments into a best-in-world technical consultancy experience.

Improve time-to-market

Performance analyses that would previously take several weeks of work to complete are now ready in just seconds. Customers can quickly identify risks, ensure proper integration of feature support, and weigh-in their design choices.

There are several challenges to overcome if your Mobile IoT devices should have long battery lives. The choice of battery should be made with care and be suitable to the deployment environment. The conditions to which a battery is exposed throughout time, e.g. extreme temperature conditions, can have an immense impact on battery performance and longevity. For a battery lifetime estimation, several other factors should be considered (e.g. cut-off voltages, cell efficiency, leakage currents, temperature effects etc.).

The IoT Solution Optimizer supports battery modeling that takes several aspects into account, helping you make informed decisions.


Some protocols may not be suitable for every IoT application. Your choice may impact the number of device-originated messages, supported feature capabilities and interoperability with the cloud. Sending messages too frequently would be contrary to Mobile IoT’s intended purpose. Failing to adapt IoT application behavior to this paradigm may not only prematurely drain a battery in a device, but it may congest or damage the mobile operator’s network.

The IoT Solution Optimizer guides you in dimensioning the most efficient IoT application traffic profile for the operator network and technology of choice.


With the IoT Solution Optimizer, you assemble a “virtual twin” of a product, for example a parking sensor. After selecting the network where the device will run, you pick access technology and hardware components, such as radio modules and batteries. Then, you specify the application and deployment aspects, including payload and protocol, power saving features, coverage and temperature environments.

Not only are reliable results of expected battery life calculated in seconds, but we indicate how the solution can be optimized to improve economic viability. Performance analyses which previously took industry experts several man-weeks to complete, can now be delivered in just seconds.


The IoT Solution Optimizer is a service that bridges the fragmented IoT industry, bringing many suppliers in contact with customers looking for great solutions.

With the IoT Solution Optimizer you can easily get in touch with our partners across the globe. By providing an online service where you can select device components to build your own product, you can find the best partners for each ingredient of your solution and learn how to combine these components most efficiently. If you are simply looking to buy ready-made IoT devices, we conveniently offer many different options from world-class device manufacturers.
