Did you know that 47% of countries still use 2G compliant mobile phones or do not have data transmission capability? India is made up of many divisions and we are a company that believes in serving them all, ?? Sunil Sood, CEO of Vodafone India, in a conversation with CEOix and its founder Shradha Sharma at TechSparks 2017. Explain how his company “drives innovation in the digital world. “Sood says: Fostering innovation is a two-way street, it just dragged people like people here today, we learn from them and they learn from us.” He adds that if Vodafone has the knowledge and the experience that startups want to use when Shradha asks him how businesses, small and medium-sized businesses and start-up companies actually have They work together to innovate and co-create new products, and he says that while startups have challenged the status quo and developed emerging technologies, each of these new technologies requires a connection layer and Vodafone is the layer that provides this layer. Vodafone is one of the main players in the Internet of Things. We own a large company called IoT, called Italian Automobile Company (Cobra), and want to bring some to India as well as work with start-ups. We have worked with car manufacturers such as Mercedes, BMW and Volkswagen in Europe. All new mobile world Solving the problem of the “next Indian mobile story” and what has been archived, Sood says that although the first wave of telecommunications is reaching out and connecting people with “voicen”, the next wave or revolution will be data, and the ball rolls on it.

We can make money. The advantage of Startup India is that the government makes sure there is a formal mechanism to do that. We at Vodafone want to cooperate with such people to learn from them and return them. Finally, it’s about reducing waste, increasing efficiency and helping them eliminate faff, and getting to the heart of the problem they’re trying to solve. They can use our products and services to prove themselves in the market. About security and competition Sood says he falls in cybersecurity and cyber attacks hiding even for a minute means opening up to a variety of threats. You can not stop thinking about it, because the day you do it, something will happen. The advantage is that we perform internal simulator attacks on our systems and are trained to be alert. Therefore, when the attacks took place in India, we were not affected. Being a global multinational has helped maintain our security at the highest level. We bring global practices here and that’s what helps us. But you can not be complacent. There is always another guy who will have a better idea and that’s why you have to innovate all the time. he said. He dismissed the threat posed by Reliance Jio. There is nothing new in the product Technology. The same 4G that we sell around the world, Reliance sells here. The advantage or disadvantage is that they are for a specific type of person. We serve Bharat and India and that is the difference. Letare understands that those who have high-end phones are high-end Indian society. And while we may have the image of a high-end company, 60 percent of our clients are in rural India. Says Sood, citing official census data.
