Reliance Communications has entered into a partnership with Internet of Things platform provider Jasper, for providing enterprises with a platform to launch their IoT services. Jasper’s only telecom partner in India is Reliance, and will use Reliance’s 11 data center facilities as well as its Global Cloud Exchange to deliver its services.

The services provided through the partnership will help enterprises automate IoT service lifecycle as well as monetize their businesses. The companies mention that they are currently in talks with multiple clients and state governments across the country to help phase out IoT services. Jasper currently provides solutions for connected devices, connected cars and mobility services.

Interestingly, just last month, Vodafone India’s enterprise arm Vodafone Business Services partnered with Diabetacare to launch dCare Smart, a device that helps users manage diabetes. The device uses an embedded Vodafone SIM card to connect directly to Diabetacare’s back-end clinical servers for monitoring a patient’s health.

Other tie-ups in connected devices:

– Earlier this month, MaymyIndia partnered with Avis Car rental to implement its Integrated Dispatch Solution in all of Avis’ cars.The solution would support features like like geofencing, live positioning, alert reports about movement, undue stoppage, billing etc, vehicle status including free, stopped, moving or occupied and historical data replay.

– The month before, MapmyIndia partnered with VE Commercial Vehicles for enabling connected school buses. This partnership is similar to the Avis one, although there are differences in that system targeted at letting parents keep track of kids.

– In June, Mahindra and Mahindra joined Google’s Open Automotive Alliance, an alliance of vehicle manufacturers and device makers from around the world that aim to bring the Android platform to cars. Note that in January last year, Google had mentioned that it was collaborating with several automotive and technology companies like Audi, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Ford and Nvidia, Parrot, Pioneer, LG, Alpine etc., to bring its Android platform to cars through the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA).
