Technology design provider Tata Elxsi has partnered with IoT company Ayla Networks to simplify value-added IoT services for businesses. As per the terms of the deal, Tata Elxsi and Ayla Networks will develop and deliver IoT solutions that will simplify challenges faced by Communication Service Providers (CSPs).
According to Tata Elxsi, Communication Service Providers build and offer consumers new and smart IoT solutions that simplify businesses processes. However, while building these solutions, CSPs come across different obstacles right from choosing effective IoT technologies and ecosystem partners to deploying, scaling, managing and profiting from these IoT offerings.
By partnering with Ayla Networks, Tata Elxsi claim that they will help CSPs overcome challenges that they face while building sophisticated and value-added IoT solutions. They believe that through this partnership both companies will develop and deliver IoT solutions that enable CSPs to meet the growing demand for an improved customer experience.
Speaking about the alliance, Jonathan Cobb, CEO of Ayla Networks, commented:
IoT has the potential to create unprecedented value for CSPs by empowering them to dramatically improve the customer experience for consumers while building new revenue streams.
It takes considerable and specialized skills and expertise to leverage IoT technologies effectively—integrating the range of new connected devices, and their data, into existing communications infrastructures and making them interoperable, scalable and secure.
Together, Ayla Networks and Tata Elxsi can help CSPs successfully navigate this new landscape.
The IoT company says that the decision to partner with Tata was a no-brainer since they shared a common vision of helping CSPs achieve their business and IoT goals. Nitin Pai, Senior Vice President and Head of Marketing and Strategy at Tata Elxsi, commented:
The collaboration between Tata Elxsi and Ayla Networks is aimed at real challenges that operators face today, from choosing the best IoT technologies and ecosystem partners to implementing, scaling, managing and getting maximum benefit from their IoT offerings. We look forward to working with Ayla Networks in helping CSPs achieve their IoT goals.
Research giant Gartner believes that by 2020, more than 65% of the organizations globally will be adopting IoT products. Looks like this claim is likely to be true, given the recent developments such as – the partnership of Alibaba with myDevices and that of Google with C3 IoT, to boost IoT development in global markets.
