Director and CEO- Airtel Business, Ajay Chitkara stated, ”Our 5G solution for enterprise will transform manufacturing operations in the country. We are thrilled to partner with Tech Mahindra and Mahindra Auto to demonstrate this transformation and have made the Chakan manufacturing facility India’s first 5G enabled Auto Manufacturing Unit. As the industry 4.0 paradigm gathers momentum, reliable data networks will prove to be a key differentiator in factory & manufacturing performances. This is just the beginning, and I am certain we will showcase many more innovative use cases that will help redefine manufacturing in India.”

Airtel pointed out that the ‘5G for Business’ solution has significantly enhanced Chakan’s network connectivity, resulting in improved speeds for software flashing, a critical operation for all vehicular dispatches. “Blazing hi-speeds and ultra-low latency now allow managers to undertake multiple software flashing sessions in parallel, which has resulted in reduced turn-around time for an operation,” noted the official communication. Further, it said, the computerized vision-based inspection is now fully automated resulting in improved paint quality.

Manish Vyas, President, Communications, Media and Entertainment Business, and CEO, Network Services, Tech Mahindra, remarked: ”5G roll-out has revolutionalized the world of internet, ushering a new era of connectivity, communication, and collaboration. Our collaboration with Airtel is aimed at enhancing customer experience through digitally powered new-age platforms and solutions. We are confident that this partnership will help unlock opportunities across industries to improve productivity, drive intelligent network-led enterprise digitalization, and spur innovation.”

It is noteworthy that Airtel is focussing on 5G deployment in India, and testing use cases and spectrum delivery with multiple partners and at several locations.

It is interesting to note that under the NXT.NOW™ framework, Tech Mahindra is working for digital growth and a ‘Human Centric Experience’. The company expects the current collaboration to take this endeavour forward.
