Tata Communications to connect everyone and everything
Tata Communications MOVE platform is built on the company’s partnerships with 900 mobile communications service providers
Tata Communications has unveiled its entry into the mobile data connectivity and Internet of Things market with its MOVE platform.
The MOVE platform is supported by the company's global network, partnerships with 900 mobile communication service providers and its recent investment in Teleena.
Teleena is an IoT connectivity specialist and mobile virtual network enabler whose technology manages the operational complexity and reduces the cost of IoT deployments for businesses. Combining Teleena's IoT technology and Tata Communications aims to lower the barriers for brands to introduce new IoT-enabled services for engaging with consumers in new ways, as well as pave the way for new industrial IoT applications to generate operational efficiencies in sectors such as manufacturing and logistics.
In the first roll-out phase of MOVE, the platform encompasses global cellular IoT and SIM connectivity, with further enterprise and mobile network operator capabilities to follow later in 2017.
Anthony Bartolo, president, Mobility, IoT and Collaboration Solutions, Tata Communications, said: "We believe that the future of this digital world lies in how all of these ‘things' connect - and that everything should be born connected. So, imagine a world where there could be embedded connectivity within everything - straight out of the box, with instant and seamless access to the Internet, anywhere in the world.
"That's our aim with Tata Communications MOVE. It is a platform that enables companies to embed global connectivity in anything, improving the user experience, creating completely new revenue streams, and fulfilling the promise of a truly digital world."
