Reliance Communications Ltd. (RCoM) has entered into a partnership with U.S.-based Jasper, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider, to offer enterprises and individuals in India the capability to launch and manage IoT business operations.
Reliance is Jasper’s sole telecom partner in India, and functionally will operate as a “platform as a service” offering from Reliance’s 11 data center facilities and its Global Cloud Exchange “Cloud X” platform.
Reliance Group companies will be the anchor clients for the IoT rollout in India, but discussions are also underway with multiple clients and state governments across India for the deployment of this platform. That method–using other Reliance businesses as anchor customers–has been used before by Reliance Communications.
A dedicated technical team from Reliance and Jasper will manage the phased roll-out of Internet of Things services across the country.
