- Bharti Airtel launched an integrated platform on Wednesday that allows businesses to harness the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) and prepare for the coming era of “connected things.”
- IoT has three primary criteria for businesses. It is first, networking solutions that protect users’ software and application investments in the future.
According to the business, ‘Airtel IoT’ is an end-to-end platform that can link and manage billions of applications and devices in a highly secure and seamless manner.
According to estimates, connected cars and appliances, SMART factories and services, and other use cases are expected to push India’s cellular connectivity-based IoT market to Rs 10,000 crore by 2022.
“IoT has three primary criteria for businesses. First, networking solutions that protect users’ software and application investments in the future. Second, the safety of their information, “Director and CEO of Airtel Company, Ajay Chitkara, said.
The third criteria are seamless integration with existing IT systems to make IoT data actionable, according to Chitkara, who also said that Airtel’s new offering is based on these insights to “massively simplify enterprise IoT journeys.”
Airtel’s 5G Ready network, which uses Airtel e-SIM technology to implement NB-IoT (NarrowBand-Internet of Things), 4G, or 2G networking at its core.
It also has a versatile collection of APIs (application programming interfaces) that eliminates time-consuming integration journeys and enables businesses to communicate, capture, and analyse data using their existing workflow tools.
According to Airtel, its telco-grade protection would help businesses ensure that their IoT data is safe and accessible in real-time for analytics and service delivery.
