Mumbai, Feb 26 : Antel, a state-owned company and telecommunications market leader in Uruguay, and Tata Communications, a leading global digital infrastructure provider, have joined forces to serve mobile and IoT providers in South America, Central America and the Caribbean.
It will act as the foundation for next-generation mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) services in sectors such as retail, utilities, construction, IT and banking. Antel and Tata Communications will offer cloud-based mobile and IoT services using a business model that minimises total cost of ownership and time-to-market through a unique commercial risk sharing approach. The new mobility partnership combines Antel’s world-class data centre and Latin American market knowledge with the Tata Communications MOVE platform global network reach to enable businesses to quickly deploy new mobile and IoT services across the region.
Through the use of the Tata Communications MOVE platform, Antel’s MVNO partners can bring their own mobile network access agreements across Central and South America as well as the Caribbean, or work
with Antel as the enabler for mobile wholesale access. As a result, mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) of all sizes and market segmentations are able to launch new mobile and IoT services without making large up-front investments in their own mobile infrastructure, network service management or go-to-market operations.
The cloud-based, fully automated and API-enabled Tata Communications MOVE platform simplifies and accelerates the roll-out of new mobile and IoT services for Antel’s partners. This is because it is tightly integrated with their business processes, eliminating the complexity associated with the management of operations, including service activation, billing, promotions and value-added services.
Tata Communications MOVE is part of the company’s aim of creating global, borderless mobile experiences for people and things. It is underpinned by Tata Communications’ partnerships in the world’s mobile ecosystem and its global network, which today connects 4 out of 5 mobile subscribers and carries around 30% of the world’s Internet routes.
