Indian communications solutions provider Bharti Airtel (Airtel) and digital transformation and consulting company Tech Mahindra have announced a strategic partnership to deploy 5G for enterprise solutions at Mahindra’s manufacturing facility in Chakan, making it India’s first 5G-enabled automobile manufacturing unit.
Chakan’s network connectivity has been improved thanks to the “5G for Business” solution, resulting in faster software flashing speeds, a key step for all vehicle shipments. Managers can now conduct multiple software flashing sessions simultaneously due to high speeds and extremely low latency, reducing the time to perform activities. Now that computerized vision-based inspection is fully automated, paint quality has improved. As part of its #5GforBusiness offering, Airtel is testing use cases and spectrum delivery in several locations with various partners.
Together with Tech Mahindra’s industry expertise, Airtel’s integrated connectivity portfolio #5GforBusiness offers customers specialized services, proven system integration skills and 5G solutions for enterprises like Factori. Business users will benefit from NKST’s expertise in planning, designing, installing and managing private wireless networks for businesses. It will accelerate the adoption of game-changing network technologies such as 5G in India. This collaboration is in line with Tech Mahindra’s NKST.NOVTM framework, which focuses on investing in cutting-edge technologies and solutions that enable digital transformation and meet the changing needs of consumers and strives to enhance the “Human Centric Experience”.
