“The launch of Vi-integrated IoT Solutions is a strategic step towards making Vi Business - an IoT ecosystem integrator for Indian enterprises, and positioning Vi to have an Ecosystem Play driving our transformation from a ‘Telco’ to ‘TechCo’,” he added.

The telco will adopt a consulting-led engagement to support businesses in identifying their needs, design and develop the right IoT solution and implementation. It will also provide them with a tailored solution to be integrated with the best-in-class enterprise-grade IoT framework.

Vi is the largest IoT player in India and with this launch, it has further strengthened its portfolio by providing a comprehensive range of IoT solutions across industries for smart infrastructure, smart mobility and smart utilities, on its 5G-ready network. With Vi integrated IoT solutions, an enterprise can now focus on its core strength, thus simplifying and accelerating IoT innovation.
