Tata Communications has launched its Internet of Things (IoT) Marketplace – a first-of-its-kind initiative in India to strengthen and accelerate the country’s growing IoT ecosystem. The IoT Marketplace will bring together IoT practitioners and enterprise customers on a single platform, setting the ground for customers to tailor their IoT solutions, and drive innovation within their business while enabling vendors and partners on the platform to discover new market opportunities.
The IoT Marketplace looks to address these needs by bringing together different partners from device manufacturers, software developers to start-ups, and system integrators to deploy and manage IoT solutions, all under one single platform. The complete solution-set will be offered by Tata Communications and the partners in the ecosystem – underpinned by Tata Communications’ pan-India infrastructure and platform. The IoT Marketplace will enable diverse customers from government/public sectors to enterprises and start-ups to choose from a range of offerings and services on a plug-and-play model, enabling them to leverage IoT solutions to address their custom requirements.
The company is building the foundation for IoT in India with its LPWAN network, spanning nearly 2000 communities and touching over 400 million people in total. To date, the company has rolled out its network in 45 cities, with more cities planned for implementation over the next two years.
