To pave the way for the Internet of Things in India

Tata Communications has successfully conducted trials of new Low Power Wide Area Network1 (LPWAN), based on LoRaTM technology for connected devices and cutting edge Internet of Things (IoT) applications across Mumbai and Delhi.

These trials will bolster successful deployment of IoT applications in India, as Gartner forecasts that there will be 4.9 billion connected things globally in 2015, reaching 25 billion by 2020 - more than three times the number of people on earth today.

Tata Communications plans to roll out India's first LoRaTM network across the country, with full coverage starting in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. LoRaTM is a wireless communication technology dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT) / Machine to Machine (M2M) communications network. The new network is a super low-power, secure, bidirectional, communication solution, which any organisation can use to connect objects and innovative applications simply and energy efficiently, overcoming high power consumption challenges with existing wireless solutions. The first phase targets to cover 400 million people across Tier 1, 2, 3 and 4 cities.
