Belden strategic relationships make scalable digital transformation easier & faster

Venlo, The Netherlands – June 13, 2023 – Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a leading global supplier of network infrastructure and digitization solutions, is showcasing its growing number of new strategic relationships and its Partner Alliance Ecosystem, designed to bring together industry leaders with complimentary technologies for enhanced solutions.

At this year’s Hannover Trade Fair in Germany, the company outlined a series of industry relationships:

  • HARTING: In a live demo Belden and HARTING revealed to visitors how far SPE can go today. The demo, a live video transmission via 1Gbit/s SPE over 90 metres, showed that the technical potential of SPE is far higher than currently specified in the standard. The partnership aims to continue to develop the technology for 1 Gbit/s SPE for a distance of 100 meters.
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS): At the AWS booth, Belden’s Vice President of Global Products and Solutions, Vinod Rana, shared how the work with AWS unlocked predictive insights and digital twin possibilities to revitalize a 95-year-old plant.
  • TensorIoT: Both partners presented their project to modernize global manufacturing operations by retrofitting a 100-year-old plant through IoT and AI solutions to maximize efficiency. The joint expertise of both companies allowed for an integrated and scalable solution for which the deployment journey started with liberating existing data, before improving operations with advanced analysis.
  • Digital Twin Consortium: Being a member of the Digital Twin Consortium, Belden’s Global footprint of Customer Innovation Centers aligns perfectly with the Digital Twin Consortium regional branch organization, bringing together case studies and use cases that add to the collective intelligence of the overall DTC.
  • Matterport: With Belden being at the front end of the customer’s Digital Twin journey, the partnership between Matterport, a 3D spatial data company, and Belden, provides industrial companies with the ability to implement visual immersive replicas of their physical spaces, allowing for remote operations, service and facility management and training.
