T-Systems, BMW F1 team up on technology

Deutsche Telekom's T-System unit and BMW's Formula One team have agreed on a technology partnership, extending an existing one between the business customer unit and the world's largest premium carmaker, a Reuters report said.

The Reuters report quoted T-Systems as saying that it had set up a high-performance data connection for the BMW racing team with links connecting locations in Munich, Germany, and Hinwil, Switzerland.

That will allow secure data exchange from the Formula 1 car's development, test and race phases, it said.

T-Systems, Deutsche Telekom's smallest unit, has targeted the automotive sector as one of its areas for growth. Its clients also include Daimler and Toyota, the report said.

T-Systems is also working on a logistics solution for car parts based on radio frequency identification , which will enable the identification and positioning of all vehicle and replacement parts that travel with the Formula 1 Team around the world, the report further said.
