PLDT Enterprise underscores advantages of IoT deployment in PH businesses

(Manila, Philippines - February 2022) PLDT Enterprise, the B2B arm of the country’s largest fully integrated telecommunications provider PLDT, highlights the advantages of deploying Internet of Things (IoT) technology in overcoming the impacts of the pandemic to local businesses. 

Jojo Gendrano, FVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise, said that IoT technology has been increasingly relevant in allowing entrepreneurs to thrive in today’s dynamic business landscape, effectively addressing the challenges in the new normal.

“As we continue to feel the effects of the pandemic, businesses need to be empowered by enabling a truly connected environment where they can overcome the challenges of distance and physical restrictions. We can do that through adopting technologies such as the Internet of Things,” said Gendrano.

IoT technology allows communication between machines through wired and wireless communication channels, enabling full control, visibility, transparency, and security of internet-enabled devices. It is one of the innovations behind smart homes and smart cities, wherein cloud-connected devices are equipped with sensors and processors which can gather and transmit data for automation, remote monitoring and management to empower a more efficient and smarter way of life.

Such technology poses limitless possibilities to different sectors from manufacturing, health care, communications, transportation, and logistics, to retail, agriculture, and finance. 

“Internet of Things deployment is much needed especially now when businesses are struggling with mobility and physical restrictions, limited manpower, system security issues, and reduced operations efficiency. Many organizations have been dealing with these, comprising their business productivity. This should not be the case because we can manage these difficulties through the right solutions and the right technologies. We believe IoT can help solve these all at once,” he said.

Recently, PLDT Enterprise launched its newest digital offering called the Internet of Possibilities by PLDT and Smart which aims to open up new possibilities for Internet of Things (IoT) applications and deployment among enterprises and consumers in the country.

It is a unified platform for the effective management of connectivity and usage of a multitude of connected IoT devices within enterprises. It seamlessly integrates existing business processes into a common, open platform for data and insights that can be used to open unlimited business growth opportunities to various industries.
