Vodafone Idea Limited (VIL), the third-largest telecom operator in the country, has just announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DoT) on the occasion of ‘World Telecommunication and Information Society Day’ (WTISD). C-DoT is the premier research and development (R&D) centre of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT).

Both the organisations will leverage each other’s expertise in their respective domains for deploying and developing IoT/M2M solutions in the country. Developing an IoT ecosystem has become an important aspect of every business that is looking to automate certain tasks and go digital. But there are a lot of challenges in deploying IoT

solutions at scale. There are problems such as over the air (OTA) firmware upgrade, device network compatibility, remote device configuration, and more which are restricting the enterprises from reaping the benefit of IoT deployment at scale.
