Welcome Biren to the IoT For All podcast. How’s your week going thus far?
– [Biren] To date so good. No complaints.
– [Ryan] Implausible. Effectively, it’s nice to have you ever. I’d love to begin off by having you give the short introduction to our viewers. And allow them to know any background info, something about your self you assume shall be related. To allow them to get extra insights into who they’re listening to.
– [Biren] Completely, would like to. Hey guys, I’m Biren Gandhi. Founder and CEO of Communicate To IoT. We’re SF Bay Space firm, however a worldwide presence. My co-founder is predicated in India. We’ve got a subsidiary in India as properly. It’s referred to as Sensible India. So primarily it’s just about the identical dad or mum. And the thought is, as you may’ve guessed from the identify, it’s Communicate To IoT. So we’re within the IoT area from the forefront, from the very inception of IoT. In truth, I used to be a part of the staff at Cisco just a few years again, which really coined the time period IoT. In truth, it was IoE, web of the whole lot within the earlier days. So I used to be lucky and humbled to be a part of that core staff which coined the time period. Which sort of began the entire motion of IoT. So yeah I imply, whereas at Cisco it was a really fascinating time. My co-founder and I had been sort of doing bunch of experimentation. I used to be main the drone constitution at Cisco. Looking for out business drone engagements, and alternatives for Cisco for like subsequent decade or two. And through that point I used to be additionally in parallel main an innovation constitution, inner innovation constitution. So I had launched an inner innovation problem at Cisco. Referred to as “Innovate In all places Problem.” And as a part of that, my co-founder and I simply sort of ran into one another performing some experimentation. So we mentioned, “Hey, individuals are flying drones.” This was again in 2016. So we mentioned, “Hey, individuals are flying drones, taking a look at their cell phones or joysticks.” I imply, primarily they’re wanting down whereas the flying machine is definitely up within the air, within the sky. So it’s a fragmented consideration downside. Whether or not individuals ought to be wanting down or they need to be wanting up the place the precise machine goes. It could be bumping into one thing, any individual’s window or tree or one thing, proper? That’s the place the thought, “Hey, can we fly drones utilizing voice?” Purely, similar to no joysticks, no cell phones. Not solely based mostly on the Alexa or Google Assistant voice instructions that, “Hey, take off, land, go left, go proper, improve the pace, lower the pace.” All these issues. And, that went very efficiently. And after that we went on doing a bunch of initiatives. Making autonomous robots, doing WiFi website surveys inside buildings. And doing bunch of issues. Purely voice managed autonomous totally. So we mentioned, “Hey, can we simply prolong this idea to something which has electrical energy.” Why simply restrict ourselves to drones or robots, the high-end devices. And that’s how the Communicate To IoT idea was born in a approach. That, hey, it’s any IOT gadget, any web linked or any energy gadget for that matter will be voice controllable, will be made voice controller however in a really intuitive hands-free contactless method. And, that’s the place we’re three years and alter down the highway. We’re within the means of doing this voicesification in order to talk of many, many IoT units. Whether or not they’re shopper IoT home equipment, good home equipment, good house devices, switches, lights, LEDs, followers, no matter you may consider, proper? That’s one area. However not solely that. Our platform, it’s a software program platform. Which sort of normalizes this voice interfaces for anyone and all people. So consider it like any individual desires to raised voicesify their backend course of or workflow in an enterprise, in a business setup. We will do this too. Not simply IoT units. So the scope is fairly broad. In truth, you are able to do so many issues of changing voice to something. So primarily what we’ve got constructed, it’s a common function patent pending multi function platform. Which may convert any IoT gadget, all making course of. Right into a voice enabled entity. Which is compliant to Alexa, Google, Samsung Voice, and whoever comes sooner or later. So primarily it’s a future proof platform which may cater to many alternative use circumstances.
– [Ryan] Implausible. So speak a bit bit extra about sort of your goal buyer or what’s was your typical buyer for the reason that firm has been based and also you’re going to market. Who’re you sort of aiming this at? What stage of the IoT course of are they normally in, and what does that relationship normally appear to be?
– [Biren] Yeah, would like to. So should you keep in mind, again from the outdated days. Within the inception days of IoT, proper? IoT is sort of sometimes catering to all segments. Individuals, course of, information and issues, proper? So primarily that’s the sort of a breakdown of our buyer or goal section as properly.
– [Ryan] Okay.
– [Biren] So on this issues facet, proper? Something which is sort of automated, automatable, something which has electrical energy, something which has connectivity, WiFi connectivity. We will make it voice suitable. So any legacy equipment or shopper electronics or enterprise or company to confirm something. Consider any shopper gadget, which has WiFi connectivity, or we will present WiFi connectivity. Additionally that may be managed over voice. In order that’s one section. Equipment producers that’s certainly one of our goal segments. Individuals having legacy home equipment wish to make them voice enabled, IoT enabled, or by app allow. Sure, we will cater to them, that’s one section. Second one is, out of these individuals course of information issues. Is the method and the information, proper? In order that’s the place the enterprise workflows come into image. Something software program and something which requires dashboards, 5 clicks, seven clicks. I keep in mind many firms, particularly that was the case again within the day. Many firms to be able to create a visitor WiFi community, any individual within the, the corporate’s staff, it takes about 10 minutes. And possibly 20 completely different clicks to only create a visitor WiFi community entry for a customer, even the large pampered homes. I imply many of the firms have these sort of cumbersome experiences for his or her staff as we speak’s world, proper? In order that’s only one instance of workflow. If something takes 10 minutes or 20 clicks or something like that. I imply that’s merely not acceptable in as we speak’s world. We made these issues like voice allow, inside 20 seconds you may simply create that, “Hey, create a visitor WiFi community for my visitor who’s arriving at so and so time.” For three hours, four hours, regardless of the time window is. And increase, issues get finished. So any company enterprise workflow that may be made extra environment friendly, that’s a second class from the method and information facet of issues. And the final, out of that folks course of information factor is, and crucial is the individuals, the experiences, proper? That’s the place the patron experiences, worker experiences, stakeholder experiences come into image. Individuals wish to do numerous issues, combining completely different subsystems, proper? Individuals don’t essentially assume within the silos like laptop subsystems assume. That “Hey, right here is the operational system.” That solely operational techniques and people logistics and that dashboard is displayed someplace. And that is provide chain, that solely provide chain associated issues are displayed on another dashboard some place else. That is manufacturing, then it’s a manufacturing system, proper? So sometimes it’s a siloed integration, silo subsystems. From a system perspective. Individuals don’t assume by way of these issues. Individuals assume in additional holistic methods. So any sort of industrial workflow, consider an industrial workflow on a plant flooring. That any individual is working a bit of heavy equipment to displaying some readings that, “Hey, this studying is off.” They need to not solely search it out and say, “Hey, what was the studying?” What ought to be the studying? What are the diagnostic procedures? How can I discuss with the guide? What can I do? How can I escalate the issue? How can I de-escalate? So all that whole factor must be out there to that particular person on the ground in a break up second state of affairs. They shouldn’t be simply scavenging for that info, proper? At that crucial second within the, it ought to be available. In order that’s the sort of a voice software within the fourth class of creating any stakeholder expertise. Whether or not it’s a plant technician, subject operations information, and even customer support rep or something like human ingredient of it. So any expertise, make it voice powered and intuitive and pure. In order that’s the third class. So primarily three classes. One is equipment producers. Second is enterprises prepared to leverage the WiFi of their automation techniques on the processes and workflows. And third is that this industrial or plant workflows or buyer based mostly human powered workflows.
– [Ryan] So specializing in the enterprise facet for a second. Speak a bit bit to us about a few of the real-world use circumstances and purposes of the know-how that you just’ve been concerned in. That you just’re snug sort of speaking about publicly. Simply to sort of deliver it full circle of how this know-how is getting used to unravel actual world issues.
– [Biren] Oh, completely. In truth, we’re working with a few company giants. We’re know-how companions for Cisco. And know-how accomplice for Mist, Juniper Mist as properly. Extra not too long ago. We’re accredited know-how accomplice. And we’ve got constructed just a few options with them collectively to leverage the company WiFi use circumstances. So one is the pandemic-proof campuses, for instance.
– [Ryan] Okay.
– [Biren] Particularly the world is getting again to normalcy, proper? There are a number of necessities about, how many individuals are gathering? Are they’re nonetheless observing social distancing? Or they’re nonetheless observing the native and county rules. Every little thing is very geographically, proper? Sure issues are distinguished in New York, which might not be distinguished in California or vice versa. So how can we guarantee a easy workflow as individuals are returning to workplaces? So one specific particular use case I wish to dive in. Is discovering the inhabitants density for instance. So individuals consider it as a, let’s say college campus, any educational establishment. Individuals wish to assume that, “Hey, is it secure to go to the library to, deal with some work?” Or is it secure to go to gymnasium proper now on campus, or cafeteria, wherever. Enclosed areas, which could have some inhabitants, you don’t know whether or not individuals are crowding in the meanwhile. Or it’s pretty empty or woke up. The place I really feel snug as a person. That in absence of our resolution, that conventional approach of doing this stuff is each Cisco and Juniper, and most of the WiFi, company WiFi suppliers. They’ve some kind of APIs of their system. Which give the knowledge based mostly on individuals’s cell phones connecting to their WiFi community. However at the very least attempting to connect with their WiFi networks. However at the very least they’ve some visibility into what number of units, and units correlate into individuals. And what number of units are individuals are attempting to connect with my WiFi community in any given house. So based mostly on that they will do some triangulation and provides a reasonably correct rely. So in absence of our Communicate To IoT voice integration platform. What sometimes used to occur is these establishments needed to put massive shows, the screens outdoors of these amenities. Outdoors of library, let’s say library has three entrances. Every of those three entrants could have a large show within the entrance saying whether or not it’s pink or inexperienced or yellow to enter the library. Primarily based on the inhabitants rely inside that library. What we did is we’ve got been sort of making it extremely democratized, extremely de-centralized. Why would you like individuals to go to simply outdoors of the door of the library within the first place? We gave that functionality into individuals’s pockets. On their very own cell phones they pull out and do a Google Assistant or Alexa App. I imply it’s their alternative. No matter they like they will do. Make it shortly that, “Hey, how many individuals are there?” And increase the voice response is available in. That there are roughly 300 individuals proper now. So individuals can discover that very intuitively from wherever they’re remotely. And resolve for their very own self whether or not it’s secure or it’s okay for me to go to a specific section of the campus proper now as we communicate. In order that’s only one particular concrete instance. One other instance is finding the BLE base units, proper? The placement identification. And that’s common for the hospitals and healthcare techniques proper now. As we’re preventing. So something which has some kind of wheels and which has shared use merchandise, forklift or ventilator cart. Or something you may consider. Something which has a wheel, which is excessive worth asset, which tends to get misplaced or misplaced in a shared house. So simply connect it. Add a BLE tag on that asset. And will probably be passively tracked utilizing Cisco’s WiFi or utilizing Juniper’s WiFi infrastructure. And we will expose whole voice based mostly interplay. You’ll find that, “Hey, the place is forklift quantity 5?” Or the place is ventilator cart quantity two proper now? And the response can present on the display screen in addition to on the audio. Saying, “Hey, proper now it’s situated in constructing two second flooring nearer to Dr. James’s workplace.” That’s a really, very highly effective productiveness resolution. Completely leveraging this company WiFi networks.
– [Ryan] And the place do you sort of see this going longterm? Clearly voice is gaining popularity. I imply, I believe when Alexa got here out with the power to ask her a query and get a response shortly. Then Siri inside your telephones grew to become extra readily usable. We’re beginning to, clearly with one thing like Communicate To IoT, we’re seeing it extra in all various kinds of purposes. However let’s say like a pair years down the highway, the place do you see the largest influence from the voice enablement in IoT coming from? And who’s it benefiting probably the most?
– [Biren] That’s an awesome query really. That’s the true enterprise driver for the entire voice motion, proper? I imply gimmicks are high quality. However on the finish of the day, who’s gonna profit in the long term, proper? So the way in which I see is voice is, and I’ve used that in lots of, many instances. I’m positive all people has heard that phrase. That “Voice is the brand new contact.” So no matter job the earlier decade, the earlier era of cell apps they had been doing. Voice is the following part of that. In truth, what I personally favor is voice, isn’t just the voices, the brand new contact base. I favor voices that no-touch part. So it’s an absence of contact. It’s a very contactless and extra hygienic in how issues have been going these days on the earth, within the pandemic ridden world, proper? So it’s like, you don’t have to the touch something to be able to make issues work. So it’s a extremely, actually distant operations. However by way of advantages, what’s extra necessary with voice is, it’s an app much less world. And I’ve seen from the very first, day zero of the IoT in final decade. Once we had been sort of increase the momentum for the IoT to start with, 10 years again. Is, as we speak should you purchase any linked gadget, gadget X, gadget Y, Machine Z. Every little thing comes up with its personal cell app. Now, should you assume as a shopper, as a person, what number of cell apps you will hold in your pocket each single time you’re interacting with gadget one, it’s a must to do not forget that, “Hey, gadget one is managed by app one.” To pullout one on you want to familiarize, study, educate your self irrespect to the person interfaces of app one, how issues work, learn how to configure. Now, overlook about that. Okay, now app two, you’re interacting with gadget two. Then you want to study the identical issues about app 2. Identical factor with app three, and so forth and so forth. So it’s not as scalable downside. It’s a human problem. Units are purported to make life simpler. However with this proliferation of multitude of apps, it’s not taking place. We haven’t seen that taking place. So our philosophical stance is at Communicate To IoT is, let’s make it an app-less phrase. You don’t have to show individuals two issues, proper? What to do and learn how to do. Within the app centric world you even have to show individuals learn how to do issues. And provides an app context. What we consider is you don’t need to, you don’t need to put that cognitive overload on individuals’s minds. Simply inform them about what to do. Don’t fear about learn how to half, proper? Let system determine it out the entire half. And voice is that energy. Voice is so intuitive in nature. That it eliminates the how half from the equation, for finish person. You don’t have to recollect learn how to do issues. You simply communicate rationally that, “Hey, I need this gentle to activate or off or dim or improve brightness.” In no matter language you’re feeling snug, grammatically appropriate, incorrect. Doesn’t actually matter. So long as you’re offering sufficient info for system to behave on it. Growth, you might be golden. Doesn’t matter actually, proper? In order that’s the ability of voice for stakeholders, for finish customers again to the customers of the techniques. However not solely that. The suppliers on the backend, proper? Whoever is offering. So consider once more, I like this analogy rather a lot. App versus non-app world. For any cell app, you might be babysitting, you’re having an overhead of preliminary improvement and sort of operations administration, safety and upgrades, the API compatibility and all these issues which comes as a life cycle. It goes on and on. So each time you contact one thing, it’s a must to sort of proliferate, propagate all through the app, all through the function set. And propagate and educate your finish customers, all of the stakeholders. And utilizing these modifications and all. So it’s an IT sort of nightmare that approach. Within the IoT world we’re all the time centered on IT and OT facet. So OT is like difficult sufficient. However IT additionally turns into difficult with this app based mostly world. What voice does to that’s it simplifies the IT rather a lot. In truth, IT overheads are so minimized. I imply IT typically doesn’t even understand that there’s a voice app operating on that. Simply to provide you an instance, this pandemic-proof campuses, proper? So counting individuals, inhabitants density or finding numerous belongings. IT had virtually zero position in offering us that info. We had been capable of do your entire voice-based IoT purposes. With zero IT help. Purely based mostly on the prevailing WiFi infrastructure. No modifications by any means. So so long as you’ve Cisco or Juniper Mist WiFi infrastructure. That’s it, you’re already finished. You don’t have any new work to be finished from an IT perspective. In order that approach it’s not solely handy, but it surely’s way more much less operationally expensive. Much less operational or much less safety overhead to handle issues and remembering issues and babysitting issues. So it helps on each finish factors. One on the stakeholder person facet from the expertise perspective. And on the again workplace facet on the IT, OT facet from an operational perspective.
– [Ryan] And as we speak about sort of these advantages throughout all stakeholders. Are there some other particular enterprise drivers that can should be, or which are wanted I suppose to embrace voice within the IoT area, sort of that voice AI in IoT. Is there something on the enterprise facet that we haven’t talked about that’s most likely price noting, that’s going to be an enormous driver for voice to mainly be adopted in IoT inside organizations?
– [Biren] Yeah. Past this typical advantages of comfort, intuitiveness and the touchless, contactless hygienic method or the automated method. All these typical advantages apart, there are some things. Proper now, similar to within the IoT world, the basic conventional IoT world, proper? There’s fragmentation amongst different app platforms or backend platforms. Identical approach within the voice world, voice AI work. There’s a race happening between Google and Alexa. And Samsung can be sort of throwing in, and their names extra not too long ago. Siri was within the race, however they’ve dropped out. Microsoft has additionally dropped out virtually in recent times. However I imply, new individuals, new gamers are coming in. However they don’t seem to be making the units, the IoT units producers lives simpler anyway. So if a tool, let’s say I’m a light-weight producer, LED gentle producer. I wish to help voice. Sure, I consider within the voice ecosystem. I imply learn how to do it. So Alexas and Googles of the world, I imply they’re leaving that burden completely onto the manufacturing ecosystem. That, “Hey, it’s your job to determine it out.” “Right here’s our API.” And that’s it. That’s all we offer. However the manufacturing setting just isn’t as software program pleasant and even cloud software program pleasant, and people massive entities are. There’s an inherent impedance mismatch, a lifecycle mismatch that the place the cloud software program can change issues on every day, hourly, minute areas. Only one click on and increase there you’ve new interface. Versus these hardware guys. The bodily man is like, it takes 12 months typically to make issues in. And get it by way of the complete provide chain and manufacturing line. So how can we stability this mismatch for producers to help not only one however a number of voice assistants on the identical time to make their life simple and shoppers lives simple. So what occurs is often if this LED producer decides that, “Hey, I need Alexa.” In order that they make arduous work in placing Alexa collectively. Alexa help possibly 6, 9, 12 months. And after that, as soon as they launch the product. They are saying, “Hey, we’re Alexa compliant now,” proper? So what occurs from the patron facet? Some individuals have Alexa of their family. Some individuals have Google of their family. So the Google guys are usually not gonna buy this gadget. As a result of it’s solely Alexa compliant. It’s not Google compliant but. So completely 50% of market is gone for this producer, proper? What occurs if Alexa modifications any API or removes some backward compatibility. They’re all the time on the hook to make these modifications, embrace these modifications. And the rationale repeat for Alexas and Google and Samsung of the world. The producers are usually not really leaping in from, the way in which they need to be. They need to be simply saying, “Hey, that is superior.” “Voice is superior, let’s soar into it.” However they’re not. And we attempt, attempt to make their life simpler with our multi function platform. And we’ve got filed a patent on that as properly. However hey, producer’s life ought to be less complicated. So use our API, our SDK to combine as soon as. And in consequence, you get Alexa, Google, Samsung. All three without cost. So three in a single straight away. And as quickly as we help the complete tone. You get the complete tone additionally for you, the fifth or sixth. And on the patron facet the profit is mirrored. That “Hey, shoppers are know free to decide on no matter voice assistant they’re snug with.” They’re not locked into Alexa solely. Or locked into Google solely. Or into Samsung solely world. They’ll simply decide and select no matter they really feel snug with. So it’s a win-win state of affairs. However nonetheless, I believe it’s a bit bit longer method to go for the ecosystem to drive adoption into this space. However that’s one of many, I believe key driver that must be unlocked to be able to improve the adoption of voice AI in enterprises and industries.
– [Ryan] That makes a ton of sense. I completely observe that. One of many final query I wanna ask you is. When individuals take into consideration IoT normally. The area itself may seem comparatively fragmented at instances or gradual completely different platforms, purposes, connectivity, options. I imply, the record sort of simply goes on. How are you all at Communicate To IoT coping with this fragmentation? And the way are prospects capable of sort of leverage their present infrastructure for that voice IoT journey that they’re happening with you?
– [Biren] That’s an awesome query as properly. So, fragmentation is sort of a nature of the beast that approach. All people’s simply attempting out pushing only a latest instance, like “Hey,” proper? I imply Google is pushing very arduous to push Google Assistant as a voice platform. Alexa is doing the identical. Samsung is leaping and becoming a member of the bandwagon, proper? So all people’s attempting to push their very own issues. And IoT world isn’t any completely different. They had been in some unspecified time in the future like 100 plus so-called platforms within the IoT, proper? I imply, whenever you say a platform. It’s purported to be generic. And it’s purported to be componentized and modular and permitting different individuals to combine with numerous companies. However that’s removed from the truth. The way in which we’re addressing or attempting to handle at the very least is attempting to deal with sure key pin factors. So certainly one of them is the fragmentation on the voice facet. So we’ve got an awesome generic software program which works with Alexa and Google and Samsung. So it’s not like a query of or, it’s a query of and. Anyone ought to be capable to help all of them, not simply certainly one of them. So the choice, the barrier to entry ought to be low. In order that’s a technique for us to sort of help and assist the trigger. One other approach is the information privateness. And the information at relaxation, information in movement, all these points of IoT. So some gamers are all the time maintaining issues within the cloud solely, no different locations. We provide like a number of deployment eventualities. Sure, should you’re snug in maintaining within the cloud, we will hold it within the cloud. In the event you’re snug leaving it in your personal information middle, sure that’s additionally potential. So long as you realize the place to attract the road. So whether or not you need the Google Assistant voice entry, otherwise you need like the opposite voice entry. Which is native to your information middle. So we give that alternative of freedom to the gamers for maintaining their information wherever it is sensible for them. Not simply delivery the whole lot behind the firewall and a few nation the place they don’t have any entry again. It’s a excessive likelihood of hacking a bumper espionage or one thing like that. So we sort of assist our prospects deal with their information and personal their information in their very own approach. As an alternative of being, getting it owned by any individual else whom they don’t know or don’t have any management over. In order that’s one other level. And the third level is the long run proofing capabilities. So normally what occurs is, and we’ve got seen within the latest, the pipeline breach, proper? Within the US East Coast, the oil pipeline. So a number of infrastructure components as soon as they’re put in place. They grow to be outdated. And it’s simply naked minimal upkeep is carried out on the techniques. Each hardware and software program smart. However largely they’re ignored from safety standpoint or from updated software program finish level. Typically there may be not house. Typically the gamers have vanished. However the way in which we’re addressing is attempt to construct future proofing, future proof architectures as a lot as potential. So by a advantage of us within the center, in a approach. And us, as I’m saying us, it’s not simply us. However us with our massive companions as properly, who are usually not going to fade in a single day, proper? Whether or not it’s a Cisco or whether or not it’s Juniper Mist or different equally massive fortune 500 firms. So by becoming a member of fingers and forces collectively in constructing a future proof system with some well-known well-established accomplice. That’s one other approach of addressing this concern. That, hey, this isn’t like fly by evening sort of friendship. It’s an evolving, extremely agile safety first, a voice AI structure for IoT. Is not only like some legacy factor which you set place as we speak. And folks ignore it. And 20 years down the highway no one is aware of the place issues are, proper? It must be continuously evolving. And it must be upgraded as properly. So the way in which we’ve got filed the patent on it, it’s like as we speak we’re supporting Alexa, Google and Samsung. However the second let’s say Fb or any individual else is available in and say, “Hey, I’ve additionally a generic voice assistant just like that.” As quickly as we allow it in our cloud, the top units received’t need to do something. Producers received’t need to do something, zero effort. Shoppers received’t need to do something. Zero effort on their facet. Who leverage Fb or some other new voice assistant for that matter. The fourth one or fifth one or sixth one. So constructing this futuristic architectures with the big partnerships, a steady partnership. That’s underneath approach of addressing a few of these challenges of fragmentation.
– [Ryan] Yeah, that makes a number of sense. I believe for us, what we’ve seen available in the market. They’re speaking to a lot of completely different company. Is that future-proofing constructing in, is essential. As a result of a number of firms on their digital transformation IoT journey have these legacy techniques. So something that they’re putting in now must not simply be suitable with legacy techniques. But additionally be future-proofed for going ahead. As a result of, a number of these platforms allow completely different purposes to be constructed on high of them for organizations to actually understand the ability of IoT and never simply construct one software for the group. I believe as soon as they sort of get it deployed, they see different areas that IOT may also help. And it’s necessary for all that to work collectively seamlessly. So all that makes a ton of sense.
– [Biren] Yep, yep precisely. And on high of it, like voices, app much less world. I imply, that’s our elementary drive. An undercurrent of the whole lot, proper? Okay don’t create extra apps for the customers. Create much less apps. And convey in additional comfort utilizing voice.
– [Ryan] Proper, proper completely. In order we sort of end up right here. Inform our viewers one of the simplest ways to sort of observe up from this dialog to have interaction with, Communicate To IoT, study extra, ask any questions they could have. And if there’s something thrilling, sort of popping out out of your facet of issues subsequent couple of months, what ought to they be looking out for?
– [Biren] Completely. Individuals are gonna clearly discover out extra about us at speaktoiot.com. If they’re particular to Indian area, they will discover us at smartindia.app as properly. So for our subsidiary. And clearly in the event that they wanna drop a observe. That they will all the time drop a observe at [email protected] And we shall be glad to reply and interact.
