Ooredoo picks Telia Carrier for IoT connectivity

Telia Carrier has added another operator to its dedicated Internet of Things (IoT) Backbone, the company said.

Global communications company Ooredoo has chosen Telia Carrier to provide IoT backhaul connectivity to Ericsson´s DCP platforms in Europe.

Telia Carrier´s IoT backbone connects operators´ IoT traffic directly to device management platforms in a single network hop. It is built on IPX architecture to segregate IoT traffic from the public Internet. This creates a secure transport layer and enables the CoS and QoS parameters required to meet the availability, latency and reliability demands of critical IoT applications.

Telia Carrier owns and operates one of the world´s most extensive fiber backbones. Our mission is to provide exceptional network infrastructure and services — empowering individuals, businesses and societies to execute their most critical activities. By working close to our customers, we make big ideas happen at the speed of fiber.
