Indian telecommunications giant Tata Communications has launched an Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace to bring together IoT practitioners and enterprise customers on a single platform. Tata Communications’ IoT Marketplace can be accessed at IoT.tatacommunications.com.

The IoT Marketplace looks to address these needs by bringing together different partners from device manufacturers, software developers to start-ups and system integrators to deploy and manage IoT solutions, all under one single platform.

This will enable customers to tailor their IoT solutions and drive innovation within their business while enabling vendors and partners on the platform to discover new market opportunities, it said in a statement.

Consulting major Frost & Sullivan finds that the enterprise IoT market in India will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 35 per cent through 2023, quadrupling the market by then. Indian enterprises have not been able to fully leverage the opportunities as there is a lack of standardisation, interoperability and connectivity in the IoT market.


“By bringing together best-of-breed IoT players on one online B2B marketplace, we are breaking new ground in the journey to unlock the power of IoT in India,” said Alok Bardiya, Head of IoT business unit at Tata Communications.
The IoT marketplace will enable diverse customers from the government, public sector companies, enterprises, and start-ups to choose from a range of offerings and services on a plug and play model, enabling them to leverage IoT solutions to address their custom requirements.
