Tata Communications on Thursday (23) announced its entry into the $4 billion mobile data connectivity and cross-border Internet of Things market by unveiling its MOVE platform that will enable people and things to become seamlessly connected on a global scale.
“With more than 3 billion Internet users globally and billions more connected ‘things’ from activity trackers and smart home hubs to connected cars and street lights, we live in a truly digital world,” said Anthony Bartolo, president, mobility, internet of things and collaboration solutions, Tata Communications.
The company, in a statement, said it has unveiled the Tata Communications MOVE platform that will enable people and things to become seamlessly connected on a global scale.
The platform is underpinned by Tata Communications’ global network partnerships with 900 mobile communications service providers globally, and 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.
Tata Communications’ investment has made it the single largest shareholder in Teleena with a 35 per cent stake.
“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,” Bartolo said.
“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,” he said.
