L&T Technology Services, the engineering services arm of industrial conglomerate Larsen & Toubro, and Cisco have teamed up to offer ‘internet of everything’ solution in the transport and mass transit industries, the companies said in a statement.
L&T Technology and Cisco will make joint contributions to a global solution centre, which will be housed within L&T Technology’s facility in Bangalore. The ‘internet of everything’ is a term used to describe devices that are connected to the internet and communicate with each other
The combination – in which L&T Technology will develop solutions around Cisco’s offerings – will capitalize on the conglomerate’s strength in building transportation infrastructure and access to deals in the space.
The collaboration, which will initially focus on assessing the business value of connected solutions in the railway segment, could also be expanded to industry verticals such as manufacturing, defence, consumer packaged goods and off-highway transport.
