Delivering on strategy

Some examples

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 Denmark we launched two new value adding services – Flipp which provides access to a large number of digital magazines and Zetland which is a digital newspaper.

During the year we were awarded the best networks in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Lithuania and Estonia.

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.

At Telia App Market we have gathered all the best business applications to provide any organization with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) through cloud computing to make it more efficient. App market hosts a range of services for enterprise customers, including Microsoft Onedrive & Office 365, F-secure and Spotify Business. The demand for cloud services and popular business applications is growing.

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.

In Norway we launched Smart Farming - a ground breaking service based on Narrow Band-IoT which provides farmers with a smart system for monitoring irrigation systems. The Smart Farming service is the first service based on the new technology narrowband IoT, that enables excellent coverage indoors, outdoors and in the ground. It is ideal for things that run on battery or only send data irregularly.
