Convergia unlocks new opportunities for innovation, efficiency, and growth with Tata Communications MOVE™

Think of a restaurant equipped with a Point of Sale (POS) system for seamless payment processing and order management. During peak hours, if the local network experiences a glitch or goes down, there’s a risk of payment failures or delays, impacting both the establishment and its customers. However, with advanced technology, such as automatic network switching capabilities, the POS system can seamlessly switch to an alternative network without any human intervention. This ensures uninterrupted service, allowing transactions to proceed smoothly without affecting the end customer’s experience. Whether it’s temperature sensors in smart homes, fleet management and telematics, health monitors in hospitals or industrial sensors in factories, timely and precise data is essential for informed decision making. In essence, reliable connectivity serves as the foundation of IoT solutions, impacting safety, efficiency, and innovation across various domains.

As a global leader in telecommunications and digital infrastructure services, Tata Communications recognizes the critical role that connectivity plays in enablingsuccessful IoT implementations. This story outlines how Tata Communications empowers Convergia to support IoT deployments across various industries, while also enabling successful operations for Mobile Virtual Network Operators(MVNOs)

Tata Communications MOVE™ empowers the connectivity infrastructure for Convergia’s MVNO and IoT customers, unleashing a world of endless possibilities.

Tata Communications’ extensive global reach and deep understanding of regulatory requirements in various countries make it an ideal choice for Convergia. Tata Communications MOVE™ encompasses data and SIM services as part of its comprehensive offering that provides the connectivity backbone necessary for Convergia’s MVNO and IoT solutions to function. The MOVE solution enables global connectivity for Convergia’s IoT customers, allowing businesses to connect devices reliably and securely from anywhere in the world. Tata Communications data services, on the other hand, enable Convergia to offer cost-effective data plans to its MVNO customers, enhancing their value proposition and competitiveness in the market.

Unveiling the Mechanisms: How Tata Communications MOVE™ Operates 

Consider the dynamic landscape shaped by the rise of applications connected on the move, such as fleet management, agriculture, or smart environments. In this context, uninterrupted connectivity is paramount for seamless operations. Picture a scenario where a single network provider’s coverage is limited or experiences downtime; this disruption could lead to inefficiencies or even failures in critical systems due to interrupted data transmission. However, by utilizing multi-provider connectivity on a single eSIM powered by MOVE, the risk of network loss is significantly reduced. This approach ensures that even if one provider’s network experiences issues, others can seamlessly take over, guaranteeing the continuous transmission of vital data. As a result, multiprovider connectivity ensures effective and reliable data transmission, safeguarding the uninterrupted functionality of IoT solutions in diverse environments. This flexibility is facilitated by Tata Communications’ worldwide partnership with 600+ Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), offering Convergia’s customers the flexibility to switch between network providers based on coverage.

“Imagine being able to update your devices anywhere in the world, without touching them. That’s the magic of OTA SIM profile upload feature of Tata Communications MOVE™. It’s a game-changer, especially for businesses with global footprints, as it slashes costs and time associated with physical SIM changes. Whether it’s adjusting to new regulations or optimising network connectivity, this feature ensures your devices are always online and up to date”. Alejandro Bitar, President & Co-founder, Convergia

The result? A triumphant trifecta of cost efficiencies, worldwide coverage, and access to state-of-the-art technologies!
