This MoU aims to establish a collaboration on knowledge-sharing and joint development as well as demonstration and testing of NB-IoT applications in order to support the development of Thailand’s NB-IoT roadmap.
At the signing ceremony, the three parties announced the introduction of “Tamroi” – an IoT service platform that can assist in the care of elderly people, children, patients and tourists as well as the management of valuable items for organisations and individuals.
Supported by NB-IoT, Tamroi allows users to find their loved ones with smart devices and mobile application and can request assistance from the JS100 call centre team round the clock, which will also allow access to the device’s location. Access can be turned off upon completion, so there are no privacy concerns.
NOSTRA, Thailand’s leading software technology integrator and location services provider, will develop the platform, including mobile applications and internet monitoring using its well-known base map.
JS100 Radio Station, which has been providing news and live traffic information for 28 years now, will act as a 24/7 call centre and coordinate with all concerned in rescue services.
Due to its strong connections with emergency assistance providers, including police stations, hospitals, foundations, government agencies, and volunteers, JS100 can be a hub for data transmission to help everyone in their daily lives.
Huawei, a leading global provider of Information and Communications Technology infrastructure, will provide IoT integration support to local-system integrators in order to develop IoT usage in Thailand.
