MWC Preview: Telenor Connexion to showcase M2M services in collaboration with Volvo Cars

The GSMA Mobile World Congress is the world’s premier mobile industry event showcasing endless innovation and new applications of connected technology. At the dedicated area, Connected City, you can find out how the needs of consumers and businesses are met by connected solutions.

Connected service enabler Telenor Connexion is one of the partners of the Connected City. The company’s mission is to make it easy for companies to achieve connected services. At the MWC Telenor Connexion demonstrates why it is important to take a lifecycle view when connecting products and services, showcasing M2M services in collaboration with long-term customer Volvo Cars.

Volvo Cars illustrates how Telenor Connexion supports and manages customers’ connected devices through the whole product lifecycle from set-up, through operations to development. Connected services are becoming a vital part of Volvos products to further strengthen the overall car experience.

The Volvo OnCall app is an excellent example of a connected service that has evolved over time. Originally, it focused on direct access to a call centre in the event of an accident or other emergency, along with location tracking if the vehicle was stolen. The service has since been extended with features like remote cabin temperature control and door locking, vehicle location devices and a fuel economy tracker.

Visit Telenor Connexion‘s stand 32C in Barcelona at the Connected City in Hall 3 at the MWC to learn more about how taking an end-to-end and holistic approach will help customers identify critical requirements for their solutions.
