In Lithuania Telia was the first operator to launch the voice transmission technology VoLTE (Voice over LTE) in its 4G network. This ensures a high data transfer rate even when simultaneously making or receiving a call. It also improves call quality and speeds up the call connection process.
In Sweden we carried out a 5G field test during the year – an outdoor test on the first 5G trial system in Europe over a live network and included tests on speed and latency.
In Sweden Telia was the first operator in the world to introduce a cloud based solution for the connected car - Telia Sense. By using an app together with a piece of car hardware, owners of somewhat older cars get access to smart services and features that up until now were only accessible in high-end cars. Telia Sense comes with car control features, 4G wifi connectivity and partner services such as car inspection and maintenance, road assistance and insurance.
We launched an IoT sustainability partnership with Urban Infrastructure Partner in Norway where we will measure air pollution in Oslo with sensors and provide information for the inhabitants.
