Keep in mind that “Wipro recently acquired Appirio, a US based cloud services company, which integrates services like loud management centre for analytics, and consultations for companies that want to adapt to using cloud services.” The company could potentially use the Appirio acquisition to “provide a backend for its IoT platform based on the LoRaWAN network.” (Medianama)

Anita Ganti, Senior Vice-President and Global Head, Product Engineering Services, Wipro Limited said: “The ease of installation of the LoRaWAN™ network, in licensed exempt spectrum, will help us in solving connected engineering challenges to ensure uninterrupted connectivity for our customers across the globe.” (Wipro)
