Sierra and L&T jointly support development of new IoT

Sierra Wireless and L&T Technology Services have joined hands to provide solutions to customers developing products and services for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Under this strategic collaboration, L&T Technology will establish a Legato Lab, a center of excellence.

The lab will support customers worldwide in developing their IoT applications with the Legato embedded application platform from Sierra Wireless.

Companies said they will jointly market their respective products and services to customers in the automotive, transportation, and industrial markets.

The Legato platform is designed to simplify the development and scalability of IoT applications and is build on Linux.

Open source embedded platform integrates a commercial-grade Linux distribution and a rich set of IoT capabilities based on the latest open-source technologies, with an application framework and feature-rich tools.


Company officials said that The Legato platform provides a validated solution on an established, well supported foundation with built-in connectivity, security, and management to make IoT application development quicker and easier.

L&T Technology Services will showcase its services and solutions at the Sierra Wireless Innovation Summit on June 17 in Paris.

“The collaboration with L&T Technology Services and the establishment of the Legato Lab gives customers the specialized expertise they need and a development path to support their go-to-market plans,” said Dan Schieler, senior vice president, OEM Solutions for Sierra Wireless.

Few days ago, Infor and L&T announced partnership to provide implementation, integration and maintenance support to customers across Asia for multiple Infor applications, including Infor Business Intelligence (BI) and Infor ION.

In February, L&T Technology Services joined hands with ThingWorx, a PTC business, to create new machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for its customers.

In December last year, Sierra Wireless acquired Wireless Maingate, a Sweden-based provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity and data management services, for $90 million.
