Commercial agenda creates new opportunities

A brave new world with an ever-increasing demand of new services and capacity requires an updated commercial agenda. During Mobile World Congress, TeliaSonera introduced the ground-breaking eHealth-area and new revolutionary information about IoT, all for delivering a superior customer experience.

The data traffic in our carrier network has increased 20 000 % since 1998, the mobile data traffic will increase by 11 times until 2018. This says something about the demand of our services and future growth.

“As our customers are getting increasingly connected and living a digital life, their expectations on us increase exponentially – we need to constantly delight them with our services, our quality and our innovation into new connected areas,” says Hélène Barnekow.  “I am pleased that we now can introduce the new ground-breaking area eHealth and also that we can clearly state that the Nordics are in forefront of the IoT-revolution having a prosperous future ahead with a growth of 23% year-on-year by 2018.”

During a press meeting 3rd of March, TeliaSonera introduced the up-coming Healthcare-area, which will be launched on the Swedish market later on during the Spring. The care-taker is at center of an eco-system with clear benefits for all parties involved. Unnecessary medications can be avoided, you can be cared for at home as far as possible and you would have a better quality of life by grow old safely in your home at the same time as your relatives are given the opportunity support.

The M2M and Internet-of-things area stands for a revolution in the Nordics where every person will have 4 connected things by 2018. Connected homes, connected cars and digital health will turn into the connected society, which will transform business models and result in services not yet forecasted.

“We are used to connecting people and we are now connecting things which turn separated eco-systems into the connected society. The connected society will create new business models and new opportunities for us as an operator in the future,” ends Hélène Barnekow.

All new services put high demand on offering high quality of connectivity which can be enabled by the latest within 4G technologies. For example was LTE-Advanced launched a couple of days ago in Norway, bringing double speed to the customers.
