The world of IoT – Internet of Things – is estimated to grow to 40 billion devices by the year 2020. The industry would largely be driven by nearly 4.5 million developers and tech giants Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) already have started empowering these developers to built exclusive apps that could help both the companies to take advantage of early stage penetration. However, due to the complexity involved users are yet to understand the core advantages of the IoT and the industry is growing slower than expected rate. Consumers are looking to have rather simpler, personalized and intra-connected systems that make the adoption of IoT more meaningful and closer to the activities of their daily life.
While companies are aiming B2B sector as the first adopters of IoT, its has been identified that a large segment of consumers is exploring the possibilities of making their personal life more technology friendly and advanced by bringing in IoT to their life. Smart Home is one such example that brings the concept of connected Home to the reality and Tata Docomo – India’s one of the leading telecom providers – has planned to venture into the market with offerings that allow users to make their home more connected and full of life, without compromising with security aspects.
Tata Docomo has started rolling out the high-speed broadband network to some of the Tier 1 cities in India, where users are willing to take their lifestyle to a new level of advancements and experience. The company has started offering the broadband connectivity with the speed upto 100 Mbps that helps people doesn’t only stay connected to the Internet, but also connect and control their most of the devices and content with the help of the Internet and Smartphone. Tata Docomo believes that people must see it, to feel it, and with the growing influence of the internet in our lives, we could now be more demanding from our idiot box and optimize our home life for the optimum gains of knowledge as and when it’s required.
Speaking exclusively with Dazeinfo, Prateek Pashine – Head of Enterprise Business, Tata Teleservices, said “Being the market leader in the fixed wireless telephony, Tata Teleservices is committed to bring the revolutionary offerings in the space of Internet and Telephony. By combining both of these with the help of state-of-the-art infrastructure we want that users must experience the next generation of lifestyle at home.”
Though the penetration of Internet and smartphone in India is still at a nascent stage, the early adopters of technology have already been exploring possibilities and opportunities in this space. The lowing cost of both Internet and smartphone in India is helping users to transform their home into a Smart Connected Home. Definitely, it’s the first wave of the technology integration meant for B2C segment and by offering the required infrastructure Tata has apparently taken a big lead over its competitors, who are still struggling to provide a ceaseless Internet connectivity to their consumers.
