BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 25, 2019--Syniverse and CloudMinds Technology today said they are partnering to offer worldwide deployment of cloud artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic services for use by enterprises. The services fuel the digital transformation for numerous industries, including retail, hospitality and healthcare.

Syniverse is a leader in global connectivity services and internet of things (IoT) platforms.

CloudMinds is creating advanced AI services in the cloud to advance its mission to Make Robots Smarter TM. The joint solution combines Syniverse Mobile Connectivity Cloud Services and CloudMinds’ AI and robotics services to create new solutions for enterprises worldwide.

Syniverse has obtained a global subscriber identity module (SIM) to offer its Syniverse Secure Global Access network to enterprises, providing them global connectivity for their IoT devices. CloudMinds provides cloud-based AI and robotic solutions, including the CloudMinds XR-1, the first humanoid service robot with vision-guided precision grasping and manipulation capabilities, powered by the constantly evolving human augmented robot intelligence (HARIX) platform over 5G networks. The XR-1 can serve as a concierge, receptionist, business guide, elderly care, or VIP service staff under different scenarios with NLP, task-driven conversation, and vision controlled robotic manipulation.

“The combination of our Syniverse Secure Global Access private network and our Global IMSI/SIM platform provide the basis for IoT ecosystems and partners such as CloudMinds,” said Bill Hurley, Chief Marketing Officer, Syniverse. “This partnership reinforces Syniverse’s commitment to helping our customers succeed in their digital transformation through technologies like internet of things, machine-to-machine communications and 5G.”
