As the Government gears up for 100 pilot smart cities projects in India, Information and communication technologies (ICT) will play a crucial role as the communication infrastructure acts as the backbone.

As an Internet of Things (IoT) Platform and solutions provider rooted in India, it is an exciting time ahead for us in the domestic market as the Department of Telecom has already drifted an IoT policy draft.

We can also expect a greater convergence of smart city and smart grids in near future to improve energy efficiency, enhance grid security, and optimize energy distribution process.
