Our tie-up with Aeris Communications is our first step in this direction. In the days to come we will, through this partnership, translate the potential of IoT into tangible benefits on the ground.”

Aeris IoT Services platform, a patented and end-to-end IoT enabler for enterprises, original equipment manufacturers and service providers around the world, will serve as a foundation for the planned IoT projects. The individual solutions are designed to help enterprises of various sizes evolve into resilient, innovative and performance-driven entities that are future ready.
