Telenor Pakistan has chosen Telenor Connexion's IoT platform for IoT ecosystem of startups and partners in the country.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Telenor Connexion designs and operates connected business solutions globally, offering IoT, cloud connect, and managed connectivity solutions.

Examples of IoT applications in Pakistan are solar-powered home solutions enabling rural households outside of the grid to power TV sets, mobile phone chargers and other electronic devices.

Leveraging Telenor’s billing system, the provider of the solution can charge users a monthly fee instead of demanding an upfront cash payment.

Other application areas are OBD (on-board diagnostics) devices for fleet management or IoT solutions integrated with insurance products to reduce the large number of motorcycle thefts. 

With a connectivity solution like this we enable Pakistani companies to connect locally with our existing customers, including over two million farmers using our agri services, as well as growing internationally due to Telenor Connexion’s global network, said Telenor.

Waqar Nayyar, Head of IoT, Telenor Pakistan
Telenor Pakistan has been leading the market in innovation, for example in financial services and agriculture services. Now we want to take lead on the IoT development too, exploring the possibilities in this area and help building the IoT ecosystem in Pakistan.

And it’s not just China but also countries such as Indonesia, Korea and Taiwan. While the IoT development has come further in more mature markets, we now start seeing very interesting opportunities in high growth markets in Asia as well as in other regions of the world.
