“Always On” IoT connectivity has been made available by Airtel. Any IoT device can be connected to a mobile network from different Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in the eSIM with the aid of a dual-profile M2M eSIM from Airtel. The service also adheres to the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI)-created AIS-140 standard, which was established by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH).
One possible application for this service is tracking, and registered buses and taxis are required by law to have this equipment installed. India just required AIS-140 trackers for cars carrying hazardous goods. e-Trans, Loconav, and Lumax ITuran are just a few of the leading companies in the field that have already tested and implemented the AIS140 solution. Lumax ITuran Telematics, a well-known company in cutting-edge telematics technology, serves the Indian automobile industry as of now, with more players expected to jump in soon.
The other two companies in this market are LocoNav, which has more than 5 million vehicles operating on the road in more than 50 countries and is the fastest-growing fleet-tech firm in the world. Another is e-Trans, which is among the best national suppliers of vehicle tracking services with a pan-India connection.
