T-Labs is the R&D department of Deutsche Telekom focusing on translating new technology trends and delivering tangible results into Deutsche Telekom’s innovation portfolio.
Our current research areas are: Future Networks, Spatial Computing and Decentralized Systems.
#Co-Research is the key mission for the team, with the vision of achieving a superior customer experience and exploring disruptive technologies for future telecommunications infrastructures.
From our base in Berlin we are cooperating with multiple universities in Germany, Europe, Israel and globally.
This research area deals with the distribution of authority over data among multiple players and making intermediaries obsolete. Corporations and individuals alike have recognized the immense potential of distributed ledger technologies, which enable the decentralization, transparency and integrity of data, while significantly increasing efficiency at the same time. The goal is to enable trust without dependence on a single trusted party. Some applied use cases T-Labs are dealing with in this area are digital identities, digital business processes, digital asset management and crypto-economics. We aim to look at technology in context, i.e. developing legal frameworks, economic models, use cases, and governance structures.
