Ericsson partners Sterlite for smart city initiatives in India

Telecom gear maker Ericsson has inked a pact with Sterlite Technologies to work together in driving smart sustainable city initiatives in the country. Under the agreement, Ericsson will collaborate with Sterlite to design a roadmap and deploy solutions and services required to create a fully functioning knowledge-based society, Ericsson said in a statement.

The alliance will design, deploy, integrate and manage solutions in areas like communications, public safety, smart grid solutions and intelligent transport, it added.

These technology solutions will also help city operators to improve infrastructure operations by sharing information in real time across agencies and systems.
