Providing everyone and everything in the world with seamless connectivity globally will support businesses’ digital transformation. The combination of the Tata Communications MOVE™ platform, and Teleena’s technology and talent, will help us fulfil this vision, and accelerate our growth in the mobility and IoT market.”


“I’m excited about this next stage on our 10-year journey, because just like Teleena, Tata Communications is fast-moving, ambitious and focused on innovation,” said Kim Bybjerg, CEO of Teleena.I look forward to working with Anthony and his team to help Tata Communications’ customers make the most of the transformational potential of IoT and mobility, and support the company’s mission to become one of the leading players in this industry.”

This acquisition follows Tata Communications’ investment in Teleena in January 2017, when the company became the single largest shareholder in Teleena with a 35% stake.
