At TTTech, we commemorate each holiday season with a donation to a charitable organization and a public holiday campaign. This year, we are once again supporting CoderDojo – a global network of free volunteer-led coding clubs in over 114 countries where young people learn to create with code.

In 2021, TTTech Industrial founded a US subsidiary in Silicon Valley and acquired technology and strategic customers from pioneering fog/edge computing start-up Nebbiolo Technologies. This allowed it to widen the scope of its activities to new industries such as energy, oil/gas, and auto manufacturing and to expand its commercial operations in North America.
“The launch of our US subsidiary marks a significant step for our company. Our location in Silicon Valley brings us closer to customers and allows us to tap into a pool of the world’s best software engineering talent,” explains Thomas Berndorfer, Member of the Executive Board, TTTech Industrial.
A strong focus was placed on expanding the offering for Industry 4.0 use cases with TTTech Industrial’s edge computing platform Nerve:
TTTech Industrial’s Slate products provide comprehensive TSN solutions. This year, TTTech Industrial released its next generation graphical planning tool for TSN capable network devices, Slate XNS 2.0. Planning includes not only the calculation of a network schedule but also the generation of a complete configuration for each device within the network. This covers e.g. path, redundancy, and timing planning in an end-to-end fashion respecting individual device limitations. The release of Slate CNS 1.0 also makes these functionalities available as library for integration into customer network configuration tools keeping their look and feel for better market acceptance.
TTTech Industrial also released a series of technical articles, whitepapers, and case studies that highlight its industrial automation expertise and customer projects for smart manufacturing and IIoT use cases:
2021 also saw some milestones in TTTech Industrial’s cooperation with its partners Microsoft and Intel:
TTTech Industrial and Microsoft have been working together since 2019. Their customer-supplier relationship has developed into a partnership over time and TTTech Industrial launched its edge computing platform Nerve on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace as part of Microsoft’s Partner Program.
In a case study, the companies show how the combination of Nerve with Azure provides an out-of-the-box solution for an edge-to-cloud infrastructure for manufacturing companies and machine builders. TTTech Industrial and Microsoft also held a joint virtual demonstration of a digital twin application example for industrial use cases.
TTTech Industrial and Intel continued working together on the ACRN™ project and the integration of ACRN™ into Nerve (see above).
