Swedish carrier, Telia's Carrier business unit will provide backhaul and interconnect solutions for Ericsson’s Device Connection Platform via a dedicated IoT backbone. The agreement enables IoT operators to connect directly to Ericsson’s Device Connection Platform in a single network hop via any of Telia Carrier’s 220 IPX PoPs.

According to Ericsson, backhaul between IoT operators and device management platforms is a critical link that requires extremely high levels of security and reliability. With the agreement in place, Telia can connect customers and shorten time to market considerably, bringing IoT operators closer to Ericsson’s Device Connection Platform. 

Brendan Ives, CEO of Telia Carrier
It’s one thing to connect the Internet of Things today, but if you consider we will soon be connecting smart cities and the cars that drive us, things are about to get real. Ericsson is one of the driving forces in IoT with the Networked Society. We are pleased to have been chosen to provide the connectivity it deserves.

Anders Olin, Vice President Product Area Network Functions with Business Unit Cloud & IP, Ericsson
Our operator customers can now connect directly to our Device Connection Platform with a pre-integrated, scalable & secure backbone solution. The combined offering from Telia Carrier and Ericsson is fully aligned to provide the SLAs demanded by business-critical IoT applications.
