Telia launches Caller Line Identification Services

Telia International Carrier now launches CLI (Caller Line Identification) services, an A-number transmission enabling mobile operators to offer their customers services like voice mail, caller ID and calling lists also when traveling out of the country.
With the CLI services mobile operators can offer customers to use all services they normally have access to through their home based net, also when traveling out of reach for their own provider´s network. The services will then be provided through Telia´s wholly owned global Viking Network.
- The increasing demand for mobile telephony applications makes the CLI service an important tool for us in the market competition, says Erik Heilborn, President of Telia International Carrier. It is also a step in the right direction according to our strategy to target the mobile segment. Today people are traveling more than ever and this is also reflected in the growing need for internationally mobile communication services.
Telia International Carrier offers guaranteed CLI to appointed destinations.
- In the first phase we will focus on our key markets, the booming Eastern and central European market, says Erik Heilborn.
Telia has built relations over many years with countries all around the world as part of their global expansion, and the goal is to offer CLI services in all 90 countries that Telia has bilateral agreements with, in the future.
- We already have agreements with providers in the countries where the service is launched and have also executed tests to ensure the highest quality of services in all markets, says Erik Heilborn.
