Airtel partner Tech Mahindra installs 5G proprietary private network at Mahindra’s Chakan unit | Jobs Reply


NEW DELHI: Bharti Airtel has partnered with Tech Mahindra to provide a proprietary private network at Mahindra & Mahindra’s Chakan facility, making it the first 5G-enabled automobile manufacturing unit in India.

As part of the strategic partnership, Airtel has deployed the 5G for Enterprise solution, which has significantly improved Chakan’s network connectivity, resulting in improved speeds for software flashing, a critical operation for all vehicle dispatching.

Blazing high speeds and ultra-low latency now allow managers to run multiple software flashing sessions in parallel, which has resulted in reduced turnaround time for an operation, the companies said in a joint statement on Thursday.

In addition, the computer vision-based inspection is now fully automated, resulting in improved paint quality.

Ajay Chitkara, Director and CEO of Airtel Business, said of the partnership, “We are very excited to be working with Tech Mahindra and Mahindra Auto to demonstrate this transformation and make the Chakan manufacturing facility India’s first 5G-enabled automotive manufacturing facility 4.0- Paradigm gaining momentum, reliable data networks will prove to be a key differentiator for factory and manufacturing performance. This is just the beginning and I’m sure we will unveil many more innovative use cases that will help redefine manufacturing in India.”

Manish Vyas, President, Communications, Media and Entertainment Business, and CEO, Network Services, Tech Mahindra, said, “Our collaboration with Airtel aims to enhance the customer experience through new age digitally powered platforms and solutions. We believe this partnership will help unlock opportunities across industries to improve productivity, drive intelligent, network-driven enterprise digitization, and drive innovation.”
