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. WLocate 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.

Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications said, ''IoT start-ups that are looking for swift global expansion need to capture, move and manage information seamlessly, reliably and securely worldwide. Through the ubiquitous nature of the Tata Communications MOVEā„¢ platform, businesses like W-Locate are able to give their global customers the secure and seamless IoT experiences they expect - without making huge investments in their own infrastructure in new markets.''

Shares of the company declined Rs 1.1, or 0.18%, to trade at Rs 600.00. The total volume of shares traded was 3,899 at the BSE (10.12 a.m., Monday).
