The overwhelming development in wireless technologies and micro-electronics have paved the way to what most call now as the Internet of Things—a world where all digital facets of your life are interconnected and controlled at the touch of your fingertips.
By 2015, 25 Billion IoT (Internet of Things) devices are expected to be deployed, satisfying the needs of the hyper-connected customer. According to Cisco, there will be 50 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020 – translating to the biggest revenue potential in the next six years for telecommunication companies.
IoT allow more people to stay connected with an array of smart devices other than mobile phones, allowing automation in nearly all fields and powering advanced applications and services. Covering consumer industries such as home, transportation, health, and wearables, this explosion is foreseen to define the competitive landscape in telecommunications and consumer electronics in the next 10 years.
With IoT’s upwelling growth, Globe’s broadband brand Tattoo saw the opportunity to further expand its product portfolio. As one of the fastest growing brands of Globe, Tattoo enters a new frontier, going beyond internet access by offering next-generation solutions that covers both home and personal broadband connected devices.
With the widest and most innovative range of devices backed by the largest 4G mobile network and the fastest fixed fibre products, Tattoo introduces TATTOO NXT. TATTOO NXT is the brand’s latest product range that showcases devices that power every customer’s digital lifestyle whether at home or on the go.
As Senior Vice President for Consumer Broadband Business Gilbert Simpao shares, “the launch of TATTOO NXT cements Tattoo as a technology and innovation leader offering new devices that go beyond the basic tablets, internet dongles and mobile WiFis. More than just a connection, Tattoo aims to reinforce itself as a lifestyle brand with these next-generation devices that give customers more enriching ways to stay connected.”
TATTOO NXT presents a new range of products ranging from wearables to home automation.
Car Connect allows customers to turn their cars into mobile hotspots and be connected while in transit. Customers can get it for free on a Tattoo GoSURF Plan 999 that comes with 5GB worth of data, 3 months Spotify Premium and access to your own personal cloud storage via Globe Cloud on a 24-month lock-in period. Car Connect is also available with other Tattoo GoSURF Postpaid plans with a one-time fee of as low as P350 for a 24-month lock-in period.
Cam-Fi is TATTOO NXT’s wearable camera that allows one to shoot and share on the go. The PixPro Heroine camera has 1GB internal memory, HDMI Port, and a fixed-focus 120 degree FOV wide-angle lens which lets it take photos and videos of up to 8 megapixel and 1080p resolutions, respectively. It also comes with accessories such as a waterproof case, handlebar mount, helmet mount, and remote control. Tattoo Postpaid Tablet customers can get it for a low one-time cash-out of only P3,800.
Revving up all your devices at home is the WIFI Xtreme. It ensures complete and seamless WiFi coverage throughout the home so that all devices receive bandwidth for surfing and streaming. WIFI Xtreme comes with either a WiFi repeater and/or Powerline network devices depending on your home layout. WiFi repeaters re-broadcast the WiFi signal from a router or access point to increase the range of the WiFi network. The Powerline device on the other hand uses electrical wiring in the home as a network/LAN cable to provide network access to areas without needing additional wiring. All new and existing Tattoo Home Broadband customers can get the WiFi Repeater for only P1,399 and the Powerline Network devices for only P2,599. New Tattoo Platinum customers on the other hand can avail of both devices for free.
A device designed to bring the productivity and entertainment of the Android operating system to different parts of the household, the NXT Tab is an all-in-one gadget that brings together an Android tablet with a full HD 1080p TV-ready display. Aside from the 24-inch Full HD 1080p screen, it sports a Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad-Core 1.6ghz processor, 1 GB RAM, 16GB ROM, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and HDMI and USB ports, while running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. All new and existing Tattoo Home Broadband customers can get the NXT Tab for P19,999 while new Tattoo Platinum customers can get it for P12,999. Deferred payments for 24 months are accepted via credit card.
Finally, you can make sure your home is safe anywhere you are with Home Sync. Home Sync is a suite of devices that allows you to monitor, control and secure your home from anywhere as long as you have a connected device such as your mobile phone or tablet. Home Sync’s first offering is the Belkin NetCam HD, which allows you to check on certain areas and activities at home. All new and existing Tattoo Home Broadband customers can get the Belkin NetCam HD for only P6,599 while new Tattoo Platinum customers can get it for free.
Early next year the Home Sync suite will also be expanding to cover home automation and security. Tattoo NXT will partner with the world’s most popular WiFi connected switch manufacturer as a well as the premiere local provider of end-to-end home security solutions to bring customers the best possible technologies for their homes.
