In line with the government’s Digital India initiative, Ericsson India has set up a new division, Industry and Society, to focus on – utility, transport and public safety and Smart City.

The company has also signed an agreement with Sterlite Technologies, a leading global provider of transmission solutions for the telecom and power industries, to accelerate its focus on smart, sustainable cities in the country.

The alliance will design, deploy, integrate and manage solutions in areas such as communications, public safety, intelligent transport and smart grid solutions, which will enable the establishment of sustainable Smart Cities in the country.

Recently, Sweden’s Minister for Housing, Urban Development and IT, Mehmet Kaplan was in India and met with the Ericsson team to discuss the company’s initiatives around the Digital India programme.

He has been a proponent of smart urban development anchored around the pillars of economic, ecological and social sustainability.

Paolo Colella, head, Ericsson India said, “Sweden has made rapid strides in the direction of smart urban development and we look forward to sharing and learning from the minister regarding some of the best practices that we can implement in our sustainability and Smart City programmes.”
