Company Description

Headquartered in Mumbai and Singapore, Tata Communications is a global company with its roots in the emerging markets. It has evolved from a wholesale service provider serving the Indian market to a leading provider of A New World of Communications™ to enterprise customers and service providers worldwide. The $2.9 billion company is listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange of India and is the flagship telecoms arm of the $103.3 billion Tata Group. It has invested $1.19 billion in the world's only wholly owned subsea fiber network that circles the globe.
The exponential growth of connected devices, the emergence of social media, analytics and Cloud Computing (SMAC) and acceptance of 'bring your own device' (BYOD), are all resulting in a major transition in the way enterprises engage with technology. Both developed and emerging economies are looking to innovation in technology. As a key enabler of information and communication technologies to global enterprises, Tata Communications has led from the front in ensuring a robust digital ecosystem that is equipped for the future – with the infrastructure that can cope with customers’ demands of intelligence, scalability and flexibility.
Tata Communications’ services portfolio includes predictable high-speed connections and global MPLS virtual private networks, Telepresence services, DDoS mitigation and detection service, content delivery networks and cloud offerings. Tata Communications offers customized network solutions for customers in key markets – including verticals like manufacturing, oil and gas, banking, financial services, insurance, media and entertainment – offering customers speed, quality and unparalleled network reach.

Globally, countries, cities, industries and businesses are becoming digital to capitalize on the next wave of the Internet - the Internet of Everything (IoE), which we define as the connection of people, processes, data and things. When people, processes, data and things are connected, we believe it creates an opportunity to deliver better customer experiences, create new revenue streams and operating models to drive efficiency and produce value. Cisco's goal is to be a strategic partner to our customers by providing the solutions, people, partners and experience as their customers move from traditional to digital businesses. They believe their customers’ journey to becoming digital businesses requires security, cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies with a strong foundation of an intelligent network that is agile, simple and that provides real time business insight. The move to digital is driving many of their customers to adopt entirely new IT architectures and organization structures. In their view, Cisco are delivering the architectural approach and solution-based results to help them reduce complexity, accelerate and grow, and manage risk in a world that is increasingly virtualized, application centric, cloud-based, analytics-driven, and mobile.

Embedded with chips and sensors, objects have started to ‘think’, ‘feel’ and ‘talk’. The Internet of Things (IoT) offers a myriad of possible applications. Huawei is eager to harness the potential of this new evolution. The Internet of Things involves multiple forms of M2M communications – Machine to Machine, machine to man, man to machine, and machine to mobile. Considered the next big IT wave following computers, the internet and mobile communications, M2M makes the idea of a ‘smart planet’ a reality. Huawei is at the forefront of efforts to drive forward this new trend and create the right conditions to unleash its potential. The first European projects in this field are already underway.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming how we live and work. With IoT solutions, you can connect and monitor assets from virtually anywhere for almost any industry, including: Automotive, Aviation, Energy, Healthcare, Transportation and Logistics, and more. AT&T IoT solutions can help you reach the bottom line faster by creating new business models, automating processes, and improving operational efficiencies. M2X Data Service is a cloud-based fully managed time-series data storage service for network-connected M2M devices and IoT. AT&T M2X provides time-series data storage, device management, message brokering, event triggering, alarming, geo-fencing, and data visualization for clients' Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) products and services.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is already having a massive impact on business. It offers organizations the opportunity to transform how they operate, and gives both new entrants and established players the ability to innovate and disrupt. The Internet of Things refers to machine-to-machine (M2M) technology enabled by secure network connectivity and cloud infrastructure, to reliably transform data into useful information for people, businesses, and institutions. The ecosystem required to build an IoT solution can be complex. While the technologies involved are established, there’s still a lot of work to be done in agreeing and ratifying standards. They are seeing more “off the shelf” solutions and building blocks emerging, but a high degree of customization is common. Selecting the right providers, partners, and technologies is critical to achieving reliability, performance, coverage, and Interoperability.
