ITC In­fotech and Chirp an­nounce New Strate­gic Part­ner­ship


ITC In­fotech and Chirp an­nounced a strate­gic part­ner­ship that will en­able the com­pa­nies to col­lab­o­ra­tively de­velop so­lu­tions for clients across the globe.

“At ITC In­fotech, we are com­mit­ted to lever­ag­ing tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tions for our clients. Chirp’s ‘data over sound’ so­lu­tion lends it­self ef­fi­ciently to in­dus­tries we work with. This part­ner­ship brings in unique syn­er­gies, giv­ing us at ITC In­fotech an op­por­tu­nity to of­fer a sig­nif­i­cant tech­nol­ogy- ad­van­tage to our clients. With Chirp, we are look­ing for­ward to ac­cel­er­ated de­vel­op­ment of client-spe­cific, in­dus­tryspe­cific so­lu­tions,” said Sushma Ra­jagopalan, MD & CEO, ITC In­fotech.

Trans­fer­ring data over sound takes ad­van­tage of speaker and mi­cro­phonee­quipped de­vices of any kind, by us­ing these de­vices as au­dio en­coders and de­coders. Any de­vice em­bed­ded with the ‘data over sound’ tech­nol­ogy can ‘hear’and ‘share’ the data.

The key ad­van­tage of this tech­nol­ogy is the abil­ity to broad­cast small amounts of dig­i­tal data to mul­ti­ple de­vices with­out the need for pair­ing the de­vices or know­ing the de­vice IDof re­ceiv­ing de­vices. The tech­nol­ogy also works with­out the ne­ces­sity of any other form of con­nec­tiv­ity, such as Wi-Fi or Blue­tooth, al­low­ing ‘net­work­ing’ of mul­ti­ple plat­forms and de­vices to be done off­line in some cases.

Chirp has de­vel­oped fully in­ter-op­er­a­ble soft­ware de­vel­op­ment kits (SDKs) of their tech­nol­ogy on a wide range of plat­forms (such asiOS, An­droid, JavaScript, Python and Linux,as well as nu­mer­ous chip sets such as the full range of ARM Cor­tex MCUs) with which ITC In­fotech will be build­ing fur­ther so­lu­tions.

These so­lu­tions will be specif­i­cally de­vel­oped for clients in in­dus­tries in­clud­ing Bank­ing Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices &In­sur­ance (BFSI), Con­sumer Pack­aged Goods, Man­u­fac­tur­ing & Au­to­mo­tive, Re­tail, Air­lines and Hos­pi­tal­ity. Chirp’s tech­nol­ogy has al­ready been de­ployed glob­ally on mass-scale, with hun­dreds of mil­lions of de­vices cur­rently con­nect­ing and trans­mit­ting data with this tech­nol­ogy.
