Announcing its entry into the $4 billion mobile data connectivity and cross-border Internet of Things (IoT) market, Tata Communications on Thursday unveiled "MOVE" platform that will enable humans and IoT devices to connect seamlessly 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 IoT connectivity specialist and mobile virtual network enabler called Teleena.
"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," said Anthony Bartolo, President, Mobility, IoT and Collaboration Solutions, Tata Communications.
In the first phase of the roll-out of "MOVE", the platform encompasses global cellular IoT and SIM connectivity, with further enterprise and mobile network operator capabilities to follow later in 2017.
Over 25 percent of the world's internet routes travel over Tata Communications' network and is the only tier-1 network provider that is in the top five by routes in five continents, the company said in a statement.
