About T-Labs

At Telekom Innovation Laboratories (T-Labs), the passion for innovation and technology drives international experts and scientists to work together in the four core fields of blockchain, intelligence, experience and academia as a service. T-Labs is the R&D unit of Deutsche Telekom and is in a close partnership with the Technische Universität Berlin. At its sites in Berlin, Darmstadt, Beer Sheva, Budapest and Vienna, T-Labs sits amongst a world-class host of universities, startups, investors, research institutes and corporate innovation hubs to jointly shape the future of communication services.

The T-Labs team is engaged to live the entrepreneurial spirit and focus on developing Proof of Concepts (PoCs) and Minimum Viable Products (MVPs), which highlight future technology applications. In that way, T-Labs fosters its agility to adapt to a fast-changing and vibrant environment and always works on cutting-edge technologies.

MVP

From Idea to MVP – The Players

T-Labs’ method of work follows a collaborative approach combining the work of visionary disruptors, business strategists and creative makers, working together to produce MVPs for its business partners in Deutsche Telekom. Each project team works in close cooperation with internal stakeholders, academic partners and external companies (start ups), to develop MVPs that solve concrete customer problems.

New technologies will shape and model the corporations as well as the social environment. In this context, T-Labs, as the forward-thinking innovation unit, aims not only to explore the latest technologies, but also to act a social enabler, a contributor and trusted partner for sustainable social development, which ultimately reveals the impacts and opportunities of innovations.

T-Labs is in the driver’s seat of innovation leader and social enabler, fostering the benefits of open cooperation between various ecosystem partners and bringing new technologies to market.

UNIVERSITY-AFFILIATED INSTITUTE

In 2004, the Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) and Deutsche Telekom came together to found the university-affiliated institute, Telekom Innovation Laboratories (T-Labs), as part of a public private partnership. The object of this partnership has been to carry out joint research in information and communications technology, and digital innovation. The results of findings from this research are made publicly accessible through means such as scientific publications and presentations. The scientific discoveries have also contributed to the development of new products and solution optimization at Deutsche Telekom. The goal is to work together to realize various projects that would not have been possible for either partner on their own. This was first enabled by the university-

affiliated institute, T-Labs, and the synergies resulting from it. TU Berlin’s contribution to the partnership includes its competencies in the area of basic and applied research. It also offers a gateway to the scientific community for junior talents and experts, as well as opportunities for promotion.

Three endowed chairs have been set up as part of the university-affiliated institute:

Security in Telecommunications
(Prof. Dr. Jean-Pierre Seifert),
Service-centric Networking
(Prof. Dr. Axel Küpper),
Industry Grade Networks & Cloud
(Prof. Dr. Jens Lambrecht)

Together with the Einstein Center Digital Future, Deutsche Telekom is supporting two junior professors:

Mobile Cloud Computing
(Prof. Dr. David Bermbach),
Control of Convergent Access Networks
(Prof. Dr. Setareh Maghsudi)

With the aforementioned project partnerships, endowed chairs, and joint ventures on a national and European level, Deutsche Telekom is making an active contribution to the realization of commercial projects, to the transfer of technology, and to innovation marketing.

Beyond the university-affiliated institute, T-Labs is bringing experts from Deutsche Telekomtogether with scientists from a large number of national and international universities and research facilities to develop innovative solutions for the near and long-term future. Our primary partners are:

Technische Universität Berlin,
Universität der Künste,
CODE University of Applied Sciences (Berlin),
Ben-Gurion-Universität des Negev (Israel),
Eötvös Loránd Universität (Budapest)
