Vodafone Idea’s B2B arm, Vi Business, has just announced that it has partnered with Trilliant to offer integrated Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for smart meter projects in India. Both companies can draw on their domain expertise to create and implement integrated IoT solutions for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) projects in the country. This partnership will also focus on converting the targeted 250 million electricity meters to Smart Meters and contribute to the Government’s Digital India vision. In a release, the telco said that due to the partnership, Discoms would have complete network visibility, operational transparency and SLA management of complex AMI projects.

We are currently working with over 25 DISCOMs. Arvind Nevatia, Chief Enterprise Officer, Vodafone Idea Limited, said, “As a market leader in integrated IoT and with extensive experience in Smart Metering, Vi Business remains focused on empowering DISCOMs, citizens and service providers to grow and reinvent in a smart and sustainable way. We are confident that our partnership with Trilliant will allow us to leverage their ability to deploy large AMI projects and help us deliver advanced IoT solutions to tomorrow’s utility providers, driving faster implementation of AMI in India. This collaboration also demonstrates our strong commitment to the energy and utilities space in the country and will help DISCOMs reap the benefits of AMI solutions in a secure and integrated manner.”

Smart meters serve as a key enabler in electricity sector reforms. They help reduce utility losses and also increase revenue and efficiency. This partnership can bring Vi Business more revenue in the foreseeable future.
