Unlimit has partnered with established IoT stakeholders such as BSNL, Cisco Jasper, PTC, Software AG Cumulocity IoT, and IBM Watson IoT to provide dedicated IoT solutions in the field of automotive, Industry 4.0 and supply chain.
“With the on-going developments in the technological industry and specifically in the IoT industry, it is imperative to be the front runner in the field of innovation in IoT services. The R&D centre is a sign of Unlimit’s commitment to the IoT industry and an effort to drive innovation. This centre will also help us to be a part of a larger ecosystem and will bring us closer to our customers, vendors as well as our employees. The team is excited to work on a pipeline of unique and disruptive IoT solutions that we’ll plan to bring in the Indian market later this year,” explained Juergen Hase, CEO, Unlimit.
