Bharti Airtel today announced the launch of ‘Airtel IoT’, an integrated 5G ready platform enabling enterprises to harness the power of Internet of Things (IoT) and get ready for the emerging era of connected things.

The end-to-end platform comes with the capability to connect and manage billions of devices and applications in a highly secure and seamless fashion. Airtel’s 5G ready network is at the core that comes with the option to deploy NB-IoT, 4G or 2G connectivity using Airtel’s e-SIM technology.

The platform also has a flexible set of APIs to eliminate cumbersome integration journeys and allows enterprises to streamline the process of connecting, collecting, and analysing data through their exisiting workflow tools.

“Enterprises have three key requirements for IoT. First, connectivity solutions that future proof their device and application investments. Second, the security of their data. And third, seamless integration with existing IT systems to make the IoT data actionable. Airtel IoT is built on these insights to massively simplify the IoT journeys of enterprises.”

Airtel’s teleco grade security further helps enterprises ensure that their IoT data is safe and available in real time for analytics and service delivery.
