Reliance Group launches platform to help business set up IoT apps in minutes

Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group’s IoT business unit, Unlimit has partnered with software provider Cumulocity to launch a platform called Enablement. The platform will have a number of services and products that will allow businesses to connect devices over any network and manage and store data. It will also allow businesses to control devices in real-time, monitor device availability, and administer and rectify device faults.

Enablement claims it will allow businesses to compose their own IoT app within minutes and can be customised for specialised businesses. Enablement will have off-the-shelf applications for verticals such as industrial automation, healthcare, financial services and asset tracking.

Reliance Group and Cumuloctiy will share revenue, as indicated by this Economic Times report.

Note that in August 2015, Reliance Communications entered into a partnership with IoT platform provider Jasper, for providing enterprises with a platform to launch their IoT services. Jasper’s only telecom partner in India is Reliance and uses Reliance’s 11 data center facilities as well as its Global Cloud Exchange to deliver its services. Unlimit was formed in November 2016 after Reliance Group hired machine-to-machine (M2M) communications veteran Juergen Hase to head its IoT initiatives.

Reliance Group’s foray into IoT

Reliance Group has piloted several projects including smart grid management to decrease power transmission and distribution losses and demand side management to help consumers lower their energy bills for Reliance Energy. They also developed a pilot for fleet management of maintenance vehicles. Another project was developed for Reliance General Insurance for vehicle telematics to assess the risk profile of vehicle insurance customers. Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital has pilots for remote healthcare and assisted living.
