Telenor Group and Cisco have signed an agreement to collaborate on enhancing end customer experiences with data analysis, IoT, Smart City, and security solutions.

Telenor Group will utlise Cisco’s data platform, Cisco Kinetic, to extract, compute, and move data from connected things to various applications – exploring potential business benefits.

The joint effort aims to accelerate Telenor Group’s continued transformation and digitalisation drive, and supports the joint pivotal role that both companies  play in enabling superior experiences for Telenor customers.

Cisco will work closely with Telenor Group on its roadmap to accelerate digital transformation, drive new revenue streams, increase operational excellence and  enable the most secure customer experiences.

Telenor Group’s leadership with smart city in Norway will leverage the company’s existing city WiFi, WAN and mobile connectivity to explore a next-generation model that protects, connects and empowers societies. 

Ruza Sabanovic, CTO, Telenor Group
We’re excited about taking our collaboration with Cisco to the next level, setting up a joint lab environment to explore Smart City solutions with one of Norway’s largest municipalities – identifying different approaches to connect our customers to what matters most in all stages of their daily lives.

Peter Karlstromer, SVP, Global Service Provider, Cisco 
By applying data analysis across selected app platforms with Cisco’s AppDynamics, Telenor Group will have an opportunity to explore real-time view of apps’ performance to deliver better customer experiences.
