With the launch of UNLIMIT, Reliance became the first telecommunications service provider in India to focus exclusively on integrated IoT business.

Commenting on the new venture, Amitabh Jhunjhunwala, Group Managing Director, Reliance Group said, “The outlook for IoT services in India is virtually UNLIMITed, with the number of connected devices projected to rise from 200 million today to around 3 billion by 2020, and revenues set to increase from US$5.6 billion today to US$15 billion in 2020. Nearly every sector will be positively impacted by IoT, and the Indian manufacturing industry is already beginning to reap its benefits. The key to unlocking the real potential of IoT is to be focused and dedicated—it is this business opportunity that we are targeting with UNLIMIT.

Commenting on the partnership with Reliance Group, Jahangir Mohammed, GM of Cisco Jasper (and former co-founder and CEO of Jasper) said, “We are a company with deep roots in India, as both myself and one of my co-founders were born and raised here. It is inspiring to see the Government and enterprises throughout India invest in IoT to advance both, the country and commerce, which is why we are making our own investment in this market. Reliance Group’s deep commitment to advancing IoT throughout the country makes them an ideal partner.

UNLIMIT will also play a key role in the government initiated Digital India project, which targets to build 100 Smart Cities improving the quality of life of the people. Reliance’s networks and cloud services with the Cisco Jasper IoT connectivity management platform can together provide a complete suite of solutions for smart city initiatives, mentioned a statement released by Reliance Group.

Cisco is also hiring IoT engineering talents from India to join Cisco Jasper team in the Cisco India Development Center, located in Bangalore.
