Aircel partners with Tech Mahindra to roll out IoT services

Internet-of-things-CMN

Telecom operator Aircel has partnered with Tech Mahindra for rolling out Internet of Things services. According to the company, this will include solutions for smart energy, connected vehicles and smart cities.

Other than this Tech Mahindra will partner with Aeris Communications to provide Aeris GPS, an IoT service delivery platform. Note that Aeris currently provides various IoT services for enterprises and telecom operators, most of which are ‘middle-men’ solutions like cloud storage, a cellular network to communicate over, analytics and billing services. With this partnership, it seems like Aircel will offer the network, Aeris will provide the data collecting/transmitting device, while Tech Mahindra will offer the end sensors etc.

We expect we will see lots of similar mutually beneficial partnerships between telecom operators, IoT startups and other such companies in the future, as demand for networks, sensors and all sorts of machinery to work together grows. Note that this is not Tech Mahindra’s first venture into IoT. In September last year, the company partnered with Bosch Software Innovations to create an Internet of Things ecosystem, while in March, it setup an IoT lab in partnership with Texas Instruments.

Other tie-ups in connected devices:

– In August, Reliance Communications entered into a partnership with Internet of Things platform provider Jasper, for providing enterprises with a platform to launch their IoT services.

– In July, 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.

– The same month, 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).
