DTTech taps Tata Communications for MNO business

Tata Communications for IoT
South African ICT services provider Dreamtime Technologies (DTTech) has tapped Tata Communications to build a new virtual mobile network to serve African mobile and IoT providers.

DTTech’s mobile network operators (MNO) customers can utilize Tata Communications’ MOVE mobility and IoT platform to launch new services and expand their geographical reach without large upfront investments.

According to GSMA Intelligence, the IoT connections in the region are expected to yield CAGR of 20 percent during 2016-2025.

“We’re witnessing a mobile and IoT innovation drive in Africa, with new, disruptive services surfacing in all sectors,” said Karmanie Govender, founder and CEO, DTTech.

DTTech’s healthcare, transport, mining, agriculture, banking and retail customers can buy mobile network access from MNOs across Africa cost-effectively, on a pay-as-you-go basis, and launch new mobile and IoT services – without making large up-front investments in their own mobile infrastructure or service management.

The automated and API-enabled Tata Communications MOVE platform simplifies and accelerates the roll-out of new mobile and IoT services for DTTech’s customers.

Anthony Bartolo, chief product officer, Tata Communications, said: “We bring businesses ubiquitous connectivity for their mobile and IoT services in Africa, and enable them to capture, move and manage information across borders.”
