Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers

Enterprise Protection System

Infections with the coronavirus can quickly lead to the lockdown of a business. The EPS uses smart wearables to ensure that minimum distances are maintained, preventing infection. By tracking encounters in a privacy-compliant manner, it can quickly identify contacts of infected employees, interrupting chains of infection and thus preventing the closure of your operation.

Protect employees and your company through transparent tracking of infection chains.

These are the services offered by T-Systems' EPS:

  • Intelligent, ultra-wideband-based tags precisely determine the distance between employees, ensuring compliance with minimum distances. Your colleagues can wear them as a wristband or in a badge pocket.
  • The tags enable efficient tracking of infection chains.
EPS - Introduction

The Enterprise Protection System offers you these advantages

EPS - Production environment

EPS was developed specifically for the requirements of production and logistics environments.

EPS - Data protection requirements

It complies with the highest data protection requirements and thus ensures acceptance by employees and works councils.

EPS - robust and reliable system

It is a very robust and reliable system that is intuitive to use and requires no training effort.

The Enterprise Protection System is a tailor-made solution for your production and logistics environment

T-Systems designed the Enterprise Protection System agilely in co-innovation with customers. During development, we paid attention to the specific needs of enterprises. For example, tracing apps installed on cell phones cannot be used in many production environments, as cell phones are not allowed to be carried around to prevent industrial espionage. In addition, the Bluetooth signals that regular tracing apps use can interfere with devices in production environments.

EPS - Production environment

The EPS solves these challenges for contact tracking in production and logistics environments

Production environments often do not allow the use of smartphones.

With EPS, only the SafeTags need to be carried during the shift in production. They enable precise tracing of distances and warn when too many employees are in the immediate vicinity. The smartphone remains in the locker room.

Interference with devices and machines limits the use of Bluetooth for contact tracking.

The SafeTag works with ultra-wideband (UWB) radio technology instead of Bluetooth - this does not trigger any interference. The UWB sensor also provides much more accurate measurement results than Bluetooth. Using ultra-wideband radio technology, the SafeTag sends an ID every second and conversely receives the IDs from other SafeTags in the vicinity. In this way, it determines over what period of time and at what distance you have had contact with other users.

Many people work in production and logistics centers - often with little distance.

A safe distance is still one of the most important measures to prevent infections. The SafeTag sends a visual and audible alarm when employees do not maintain the minimum distances. As a result, they quickly learn what the safe distance is and intuitively maintain it after a short period.

We explain how the Enterprise Protection System works to address public health challenges.

Data protection at the highest level ensures user acceptance

EPS - Data protection requirements

The EPS initially stores employees' encounter data in the SafeTag. When they leave the workplace, they put it back in the collection tray, which is connected to an edge device. Their data is encrypted and transferred to the EPS server via a secure connection. This is located in the Open Telekom Cloud, which is subject to the strictest security and data protection standards. From there, they are transferred to the employees' smartphones. Data is traced via an edge cloud service to the coupled Enterprise Protection System app, without data being stored centrally. As a result, the identity of the users remains protected.

As a result, the EPS receives a high level of acceptance from both users and works councils.

Simple operation allows easy integration into workflows

T-Systems developed the EPS based on our experience with the Corona warning app. In addition, we found a hardware partner in Kinexion that had already gained a great deal of experience with ultra-wideband devices before Corona. This has resulted in an extremely robust and reliable system that can be integrated into logistics and production processes in just four steps.

  1. Start of shift: employees take a SafeTag and scan it with the EPS app.
  2. During the shift: Employees carry the SafeTag with them at all times. It provides visual and audible warnings when the safety distance is undershot.
  3. End of shift: The SafeTag is returned to the collection tray.
  4. Check critical contact: In the event of a positive test result, employees must report this on the app. Affected contact persons are warned via the app.
