TT Electronics selected as hardware partner to Telenor IoT

Kjell Karlsson of TT Electronics

TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance-critical applications, announced that it has been selected as hardware partner to Telenor, a communications and IoT provider ranked among the top 10 IoT operators globally and the top three in Europe.

The partnership agreement adds TT’s connectivity devices and solutions to the Telenor IoT portfolio, and initially covers the Nordics region, with opportunity to expand into Europe, Southern Asia, and North America.

“This agreement is an important step in TT’s connectivity strategy. Our partnership with Telenor began in 2020 when we selected their SIM solutions for our products, offering global cellular connectivity from a leading provider,” says Kjell Karlsson, managing director for connectivity at TT Electronics.

“By expanding our relationship with Telenor, we are tapping into new synergies in our solutions approach for customers in our strategic markets. Working together to bring IoT roadmaps to life, we see substantial opportunity to do great things in IoT for our developer, system integrator and OEM customers.”

“For example, as different regions enter the era of 2G and 3G cellular sunset around the globe, millions of devices worldwide will need to be upgraded or replaced. Evolution is required, and IoT and M2M companies must implement hardware that supports modern cellular technologies like LTE-M and NB-IoT. TT’s S-2CONNECT connectivity platforms help future-proof IoT solutions for a seamless transition.”

“To support our IOT strategy, we have chosen a small number of collaborative partners, but also considered how we can enable IOT faster in the market with the right partners that enable Telenor IOT Connectivity and our Managed IOT Cloud,” says Jon Petter Andersen, IoT partner manager, managed IoT cloud & ecosystem at Telenor.

“Having worked with TT in our connectivity business for over 12 months, we are confident that TT’s hardware, industry expertise, and culture of partnership will play an important part in Telenor’s IoT Partner Ecosystem in the Nordics. Together we will enable IoT faster and more effectively for our mutual customers, today and in the future.”

Telenor’s Nordic IoT portfolio and the Telenor Connexion portfolio were recently merged under the new Telenor IoT brand and operating model which leverages global competency, synchronises product development, accelerates the customer facing business, and improves technical support.
