Gigaset is Europe's market leader in this segment and also ranks among the top 5 manufacturers internationally.
The company has been active in this business segment since 2016. The mobile devices represent a logical extension of the product range from the Phones portfolio. Gigaset focuses on marketing products in the low to medium price segment using the Android® operating system. Gigaset also launched the first smartphone "Made in Germany" in mid-2018 and has been continuously developing further smartphones with this unique selling point ever since. Most recently, the Gigaset GX6 outdoor smartphone was introduced.
Gigaset entered the smart home market back in 2012. The company relies on a sensor-based and modular approach that can be adapted and changed by the customer at any time. Continuous updates and further developments of the products are ensured by the associated cloud and app technology. The company currently focuses on three application areas: Smart Security, Smart Comfort and Smart Care.
In addition to the wide range of products in the B2C segment, Gigaset also offers products for business customers who are looking for professional communication solutions.
