China Telecom Global has partnered with Tata Communications to deploy a global Internet of Things (IoT) service in the Chinese market.
The partnership will allow companies to deploy and manage IoT devices easily and cost-effectively within China and internationally across multiple industries, including consumer and industrial electronics manufacturing, automotive, transport and logistics.
The Tata Communications MOVE service leverages the company’s relationships with more than 600 mobile network operators worldwide, to ensure that a new IoT-enabled wearable device or automotive system, for example, can be instantly connected, anywhere in the world.
With this platform and capabilities, China Telecom Global will be able to enhance the global reach of its IoT offering, and address the needs of both Chinese and overseas based corporations.
Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications said, “Through our Tata Communications MOVE platform and this partnership with China Telecom Global, we look forward to helping to eliminate the complexities that businesses may face when deploying new IoT devices, and accelerate the time-to-market for new innovative IoT-enabled services in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.”
Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications said, “Through this partnership, China Telecom Global also provides Tata Communications with connectivity for Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. Tata Communications can also leverage China Telecom’s vast 4G network resources to support its customers with competitive and high-quality IoT connectivity in the Greater China market.”
Deng Xiaofeng, CEO, China Telecom Global said, “We’re able to offer our customers the borderless, reliable and affordable network connectivity they need for their different IoT devices. As the volume of connected ‘things’ continues to grow, we are able to give our customers complete visibility and control to make the management of hundreds of thousands of IoT devices easier on a global scale.”
“The very nature of IoT in areas like automotive infotainment and air travel means that these ‘things’ require borderless, secure and scalable connectivity to allow businesses to capture, move and manage the valuable information they generate on a global scale,” said Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications.
