July 2018, Sofia – Allterco Robotics became part of Hub:raum – Deutsche Telekom’s program for innovations development in partnership with startups. The Bulgarian IoT company was chosen among hundreds of candidates from around the globe, which develop solutions and products for LTE-M network.
Within the second stage, Allterco Robotics participated in the LTE-M Prototyping workshop, where it presented innovative concepts and solutions in the product categories: Wearable and Smart Home, along with 23 other companies. The ideas and solutions that the Bulgarian company demonstrated during the event impressed all attendees. As a result, the company will continue beyond prototyping, towards further realization of its ideas in practice in partnership with the German telecom.
Together with Deutsche Telekom and under their guidance and support, Allterco Robotics will work on the development of smart LTE tracking devices MyKi, as well as on the Shelly Smart Home product line using NB IoT.
„Our company joining the Hub:raum program of Deutsche Telekom as a partner is proof of the rightness of our strategy for developing IoT innovations. At the same time, this is a great opportunity to develop and create new solutions and products in order to make life easier and safer“, commented Dimitar Dimitrov, CEO of Allterco Robotics. „We are extremely happy and grateful to Deutsche Telekom for their confidence in us and for the opportunity to work together on the development of customer’s solutions for LTE-M network.“

The workshop also provided a unique opportunity to gain valuable experience related to NB-IoT introduction to the market and to jointly develop solutions based on IoT connectivity. Allterco Robotics’ team also took an active part in this workshop.
