With the increasing adoption of M2M communications and the broader IoT ecosystem, cellular IoT connectivity opens up a new dimension for the potential of the mobile platform economy. IoT devices however rely upon cross-border connectivity. This might include any device that could be either deployed in permanent roaming mode, or else is likely to be subject to frequent cross border movement. The issue is the conventional structure of ‘traditional’ mobile services. Tata Communications MOVE™ provides network-independent global cellular connectivity for IoT with flexible commercial options that remove the rather rigid approaches often imposed on IoT services. Custom network level access policies, together with granular levels of access, provide extra security.
