IT services provider Wipro has connected over 10,000 construction equipment and machines at JCB India – as part of Internet of Things (IoT) deployment.
JCB’s construction equipment and machines include backhoe loaders, excavators and compact wheel loaders across India.
The company deployed Livelink IoT solution on Wipro’s cloud-based Industrial asset platform. Wipro’s After Markets solution team, a part of the Manufacturing and Hi-tech SBU brought together a consortium of specialist partners to provide the turnkey solution.
The Livelink system allows JCB to monitor the real-time health and performance of JCB assets in the field. The predictive capability of the platform helps to collaborate in ensuring operational availability of the asset to maximize value.
The geo-fencing feature prevents misuse and theft of assets, while allowing asset owners to enforce contract compliance.
“Through a combination of technology expertise and program management capabilities, Wipro has provided support to enable this milestone for our customers,” said Vipin Sondhi, chief executive officer and managing director of JCB India.
“IoT presents a huge opportunity for industrial manufacturers world-wide and this platform is one of the few live cases,” said NS Bala, chief executive, Manufacturing & Hi-Tech Industry SBU, Wipro.
