- Digital twin platform provider Matterport is collaborating with Belden, a network infrastructure and digitization firm, to help businesses better manage their physical environments.
- The agreement aims to deliver 3D digital twin-powered connectivity solutions for industrial automation, smart building and broadband facilities management applications, according to a Nov. 14 release.
- As facilities managers continue to digitize physical assets and opt for cloud-based building management systems, the partnership will support organizations in their efforts to remotely operate physical facilities in a more cost-effective and sustainable way, Matterport said.
As industrial leaders continue to digitize physical systems and assets, Matterport says its partnership with Belden’s infrastructure network will help them better manage “asset performance, production monitoring and sustainable manufacturing.”
Through its infrastructure network, Belden will integrate Matterport visualization, spatial data and 3D digital twin developer tools into its edge-to-cloud technology stack for data acquisition, transmission and management as part of the agreement. Both companies will work as part of the Amazon Web Services partner network to support customers with their efforts to overhaul operations.
”With Matterport’s immersive digital twins, Belden customers will have even greater visibility into their networking environments to manage them more sustainably and securely — from wherever they are,” Anne Vondrak, senior director of Belden’s Ecosystem Partner Programs, said in the release.
The agreement with Belden adds to a growing list of partnerships for Matterport, which recently unveiled new beta upgrades to its digital twin platform to automate room measurements, 2D and 3D layouts and reporting capabilities. At the time, the company told Facilities Dive that it would continue to evaluate potential channel partnerships and create integrations with AI technology that can harness captured building data to boost operational efficiencies.
The company noted that it currently digitizes about 1 billion square feet of physical space per month in photorealistic 3D, helping customers avoid an estimated 374,312 tons of carbon dioxide emissions through reduced business transport.
