Tata’s borderless network across 200 countries
Tata Communications’ MOVE – IoT Connect™ will be used by Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom to bring global connectivity to consumer electronics and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Tata Communications MOVE – IoT Connect™ allows IoT devices to be deployed quickly both locally and internationally by leveraging Tata Communications’ ecosystem of mobile network operators worldwide.
As part of this ecosystem, Chunghwa Telecom will be able to tap into additional revenues by connecting IoT devices through Tata Communications MOVE™, said a Tata Communications statement on 22 Feb 2018.
“Tata Communications MOVE™ will give our customers’ IoT services borderless network coverage across 200 countries, ensuring a consistently high-quality and reliable user experience,” said Ming-Shih Chen, President of Mobile Business Group, Chunghwa Telecom.
“Our aim is to generate millions of subscriptions from IoT devices in the next three years, and our work with Tata Communications will help us fulfil this ambition,” said Ming-Shih Chen.
One of Chunghwa Telecom’s first Tata Communications’ MOVE – IoT Connect™ customers is TaiDoc, which manufactures premium medical devices to improve people’s health and the quality of life.
TaiDoc will use Tata Communications MOVE – IoT Connect™ to extend the reach of its devices seamlessly to countries such as China, Thailand and the US.
“IoT devices require borderless, secure and scalable connectivity to enable the capture, movement and management of information worldwide,” explained Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications.
Cellular connectivity is an effective foundation for IoT services, but the problem is that today’s mobile networks are inherently local – there is no such concept as a global mobile network.
“We want to change that. We’re excited to work with Chunghwa Telecom and other leading mobile network operators around the world to build a truly global ecosystem of connectivity, and spur IoT adoption by businesses worldwide,” Bartolo underlined Tata Communications mission. fii-news.com
