W-Locate, the Singapore-based Internet of Things (IoT) start-up, has selected Tata Communications, a leading global digital infrastructure provider, to accelerate its international growth. W-Locate provides real-time location-based information to enterprises across Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta and Malaysia. It is now looking to extend its presence to South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and other Asian countries by harnessing Tata Communications’ IoT and private cloud computing capabilities.

 W-Locate’s XimLoc and FIND (fleet intelligent dynamics) services integrate machine-to-machine (M2M) telematics, big data and cloud computing with location intelligence. With XimLoc, any SIM card-based device can be located without relying on GPS alone. FIND caters for industries that are always on the move such as ready-mixed concrete supply, telematics and logistics.

By equipping these solutions with Tata Communications MOVE™  platform, W-Locate aims to extend its reach across different industries in Asia. W-Locate will store all XimLoc and FIND data in IZO™ Private Cloud to help it scale up as demand for the services continues to grow.

Tata Communications MOVE™ platform eliminates the need for W-Locate to negotiate separate data connectivity agreements with different local MNOs in each country by using Tata Communications’ relationships with more than 600 mobile network operators (MNOs) around the world. This disruptive approach to global cellular connectivity helps accelerate W-Locate’s international expansion in Asia, reducing roaming costs significantly and enabling W-Locate to offer seamless IoT-enabled services to its customers.
