Bharti Airtel share price rose a percent in early trade on April 8 after the company launched 'Airtel IoT' - an integrated platform that enables enterprises to harness the power of Internet of Things (IoT) and be ready for the emerging era of connected things.
"Airtel IoT is an end-to-end platform with the capability to connect and manage billions of devices and applications in a highly secure and seamless fashion," the company said in the release.
According to Ajay Chitkara, Director & CEO - Airtel Business, "Enterprises have three key requirements for loT. 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 IoT data actionable. Airtel loT is built on these insights to massively simplify the loT journeys of enterprises."
