NEW DELHI: Vodafone Idea’s enterprise arm, Vi Business last week launched the ‘Vi Business IoT Smart Central’, a self-care Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity and device management platform. The platform has been tested and adopted by some of the leading enterprises across industries for diverse use cases.
It enables enterprises to control, monitor, and manage IoT assets remotely on a real-time basis, said the company in a statement. The platform offers real-time diagnosis and remote troubleshooting for any IoT device installed in the system, with proactive alerts to avoid overlooking missioncritical issues. Full-fledged dynamic billing and tailored rate plans based on usage patterns using advanced analytics are some of the key differentiating features of the new platform, according to Vi Business.
“The transformative end-toend platform will give enterprises an edge to centrally manage, control, and monitor connectivity options for their IoT devices across industries and use cases. We appreciate the efforts taken by the government to create a conducive environment for the IoT growth story in India,” said Amit Satpathy, EVP and Head IoT Business, Vodafone Idea.
Programmes such as Digital India, Make in India, and initiatives such as the IoT Centre of Excellence (CoE) will further boost the adoption of IoT in the country, he said. The platform comes with predictive maintenance features to reduce operational downtime, which improves efficiencies. Using the portal’s self-service capabilities, users can instantly raise and track queries, request and complaints and get faster resolution within 48 hours.
