The partnership comes at a popular time for IoT solutions in the Asia Pacific (APAC), a region, that Bridge Alliance is best positioned to provide enterprise mobility services to, according to Analysts at Mason.

The International Data Corporation predicts that the APAC region, excluding Japan, will exceed $455bn in IoT expenditure in 2021 – forecasting it as the leading region for investment.

“We are pleased and excited about this partnership with China Telecom,” said Ms Eileen Tan, CEO of Bridge Alliance. “With the growing China market, the addition of China Telecom to Bridge Alliance’s network of partners will certainly bolster our position to serve our global enterprise customers better.”
