Ganesh Lakshminarayanan, CEO of Airtel Business (India), stated, ” IoT is one of the fastest-growing business segments for Airtel Business and, with this deal, we are now strategically positioned to play a pivotal role in driving the Govt. of India’s vision of digitising 250 million conventional meters to smart meters. As we connect the devices across the country on our platform, we will exponentially grow our current IoT market share of 55.4% (as on Q1 FY23-24).”

The Government of India aims to replace 250 million conventional meters with smart meters over the next five years as part of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) initiative. Airtel IoT aims to play a crucial role in realizing this vision by leveraging its unique capabilities. The digitisation of the power sector, supported by the government’s transparency and consumer-friendly measures, is expected to lead to the widespread adoption of innovative solutions such as smart meters.

Established as a joint venture between Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) and the National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF), IntelliSmart is committed to becoming the preferred digital partner for utilities by emphasizing core values such as Integrity, Respect, Innovation, and Sustainability in its operations.

Anil Rawal, MD & CEO of Intellismart Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd., expressed confidence in the partnership, saying, “We are confident that the on-boarding of Airtel as a strategic partner will be a significant step towards our goal of creating strong associations to strengthen our infrastructure solution with a resilient and secure cloud-hosted cellular communication network.”
