Wipro launches industrial IoT Centre of Excellence in Kochi

Thursday, 14 March 2019

Wipro Limited has announced the launch of its Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Kochi.

The CoE marks Wipro’s commitment to developing innovative IIoT solutions that span across the technology stack for its customers in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and pharmaceutical, consumer products and goods, and utilities space. By Leveraging artificial intelligence, blockchain and robotics, the lab will develop proofs of concept (PoCs) and market-ready internet of things (IoT) solutions in an iterative agile development model.

Commenting on the inauguration, M. Sivasankar, information technology (IT) Secretary, Government of Kerala said “Kerala has focused on technologies, which are critical to the Industry 4.0 concept and IoT is an integral part of this proposition. The State has endeavoured to address skill-related issues in emerging technology areas including IIoT by fostering a vibrant hardware-based start-up ecosystem and a skilling framework that connects technical institutions. With the rollout of the Kerala Fibre Optic Network (KFON), the ambitious fibre2home/ enterprise/ institution network in the next 18 months, local economy stakeholders will increasingly benefit from IoT deployments. So, Wipro’s decision to set up its third global IIoT lab in Kerala is a timely one and I hope it grows into a major development centre in a short period of time.”

Meanwhile, Jayraj Nair, Vice President and Global Head - IoT, Wipro Limited said, “We are proud to launch our Industrial IoT Centre of Excellence in Kerala, our third such centre after Mountain View, California and Bangalore. Over the years, Kerala has grown into a technology hub that offers access to a dynamic talent pool with an aptitude for new-age technologies. IoT presents a huge opportunity for industries in a hyper-connected world and we are confident that our end-to-end services and offerings will help our clients leverage IoT as part of their digital transformation goals.”
